When we try use adadmin , while adop patching cycle is on , adadmin will fail with the below error as it wont allow the user to edit/modify the any application related objects .
AD Administration error:
ERROR: Patching cycle in progress - run this utility from patch file system.
You can only run it from run file system when not patching.
To resolve the issue test the following steps in a development instance and then migrate accordingly:
1. Complete or abort any open patching cycles.
2. Any remaining database editions (for example 'EDITION1') will need to be addressed by the DBA.
3. Run ADZDSHOWED.sql to confirm the editions are corrected.
4. Run adadmin and and confirm it proceeds without error.
Note : ADADMIN can run only on the patch file system when the patch is in progress, ADADMIN can run only on the patch file system when the patch is in progress
