Applies to:

Oracle Applications Manager - Version to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.1]
Oracle Applications Technology Stack - Version to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Running Autoconfig takes more than 40 minutes to complete, when it generally finishes in under 10 minutes.

Further investigation shows that the performance problem is being caused by, which calls adupdlobs.sql. This can be seen by running a "tail" on the adconfig.log, to see which scripts run quickly and which ones take significant time. (tail -f adconfig.log)

(The script adupdlobs.sql does full table scan on FND_LOBS. )

Other Symptoms
The following SELECT returns "0":

SELECT pctversion FROM dba_lobs
WHERE table_name='FND_LOBS'
AND column_name='FILE_DATA';
