On: 12.2.3 version, Patch Application Issues

Adop phase (prepare or fs_clone) fails on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) environment. The Oracle EBS on-premise environment was migrated to the OCI environment a few months back, and no patches had been applied after the migration. When attempting this first patching cycle, the issue appeared.

Log files show the following errors:

 Executing "adop" action in all nodes
xml output = <DIRECTORY>/remote_execution_result_20210325_163548.xml
  [ERROR] Remote execution failed on Node: "<NODE1>".
  [ERROR] Remote execution failed on Node: "<NODE2>".
  [UNEXPECTED]Remote execution on all the nodes returned failure.

You might also find the following error in adop log:

[UNEXPECTED]Patchadmin Server is not running.
Hint: Start the Patchadmin server from ADMIN node then re-run fs_clone
Log file: <DIRECTORY>/log/adop/<ADOPID>/adop_<NODE>_<date>_<time>.log

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following step:

1. Source the RUN filesystem
2. Run fs_clone to sync up the RUN and PATCH filesystems:

    $ adop phase=fs_clone
