R12 Cloning: Can't login as apps

This past week I was cloning a DEV environment from PROD.   I noticed that the adcfgclone.pl script appeared to be hanging.  Looking at the logs it was stuck on:


Attempting to connect to database using :

jdbc:oracle:thin:@myserver:1553:DEV,APPS
        DbSid     :DEV
        DbHost    :myserver
        DomainName:mydomain.com
        DbPort    :1553


So the first thing I tried was logging into the database using tns, ex:  sqlplus apps/apps@DEV.   This also hung.   However, other accounts such as dbsnmp, etc were fine.

Using Grid Control I noticed there was a lot of contention in the database:
   


Drilling down into concurrency it was very easy to see that the issue was related to library cache locks.


Looking at the sessions involved I found that they were related to our SOA server and other integrated applications.    Since I am in the process of cloning this database from PROD, the databases are identical, down to the account passwords.   So all of these connection attempts were using the incorrect password.   I reset the passwords to their appropriate DEV values a little later in the cloning process.

I did a quick search on Metalink and this note jumped out at me:

LIBRARY CACHE LOCKS DUE TO INVALID LOGIN ATTEMPTS [ID 1309738.1]
The recommendation is to set the following event:

EVENT="28401 TRACE NAME CONTEXT FOREVER, LEVEL 1"

I set this parameter, bounced the database, reran adcfgclone.pl and it ran with no issues.   

So, just an FYI.  If your cloning an EBS environment and have alot of integrated applications/processes that you may run into this issue until you either reset the account passwords or set this event.
