Job Market

The job market must be getting a little better. In the last weeks I've had three recruiter calls and they actually had jobs to fill.

Upgrading to R12.1.2, Tip #1

While applying patch 7303033 on top of a 12.1.0 R12 installation, I got the following error in one of my workers:

FNDLOAD APPS/***** 0 Y UPLOAD @FND:patch/115/import/afscursp.lct @JTF:patch/115/import/US/jtfdiagresp.ldt -

Connecting to APPS......Connected successfully.

Calling FNDLOAD function.

Returned from FNDLOAD function.

The log from my worker showed:

I searched Metalink and didn't find an answer, so I created a TAR.  Oracle Support came back and said this was covered in unpublished note 1066653.1 which suggests you can safely skip this script.

If you are unfamiliar with skipping a step from a failed worker, you can go into adctrl and choose 8 (although there are only 7 menu choices).  That will ask you which worker you want to skip and restart.
