If the EBS Weblogic domain is in EDIT mode, it can cause adop to fail.

Someone with administrator privileges on WLS Admin Console may have locked the Weblogic domain for making changes, and has not released the checkout.

This leaves the domain in edit mode, resulting in the issue.


 To resolve the issue test the following steps in a development instance and then migrate accordingly:

1. Start the admin server on the run file system (if not started already).

2. Login in to WLS Admin Console (http(s)://hostname.domain:<adminport>/console)

3. Click on the “Activate Changes” or the “Release Configuration” button (depending on the version) in the “Change Center” region on the top left corner.

4. Logout of the WLS console.

5. Rerun the adop phase=prepare command and confirm adop completes successfully.
