While running adcfgclone in Oracle Applications 12.2 with “addnode” command, the command was failing with the below error message,
There must be some issue with the Admin server connectivity
The Admin server on Patch FS was down. When tried to start using “adadminsrvctl.sh”, it was shutting down abruptly. When tried to start using “startWeblogic.sh” from $FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/EBSDomain/bin, it was going well.
Later, after investigation, it was found out that node manager port of Patch FS is same as Run FS, which was causing the issue. Thanks to my colleague Sainath for the deep dive.
After fixing the node manager port in Patch FS, the admin server on Patch FS was up (using adadminsrvctl.sh). And then the adcfgclone went fine with no issues.
