RC-00203 RC-50004 AC-00005

I am trying to clone one of our production machines after I upgraded the database to  This clone machine prepared by Veeam Backup. I think the below solution is applicable for VM clone also. Here While I am doing steps, I am getting below issue

done: Port Pool 65 is free
Report file located at /appsutil/out/portpool.lst
RC-00203: Unable to create/write to file /appsutil/out/portpool.lst.
Complete port information available at /appsutil/out/portpool.lst
RC-50004: Error occurred in CloneContext:
AC-00005: No write permissions for creating the Context file – /appsutil/temp.xml
Raised by
Check Clone Context logfile /u01/app/oracle/db/tech_st/12c/appsutil/clone/bin/CloneContext_0220023028.log for details.

ERROR: Context creation not completed successfully.
For additional details review the file /tmp/adcfgclone_23246.err if present.


Solution :

What I did


  1. I run on both application & database tier
  2. System Team Clone the machine using Veeam Backup
  3. Then I restored the database using backup copy, then I rename the database.
  4. Now I ran steps, I am getting above issue.

On Database Tier node,

1. Set the ORACLE_HOME Path  environment on database tier, Database SID should be a new SID (renamed one)

2. Change hostname & IP address on new server

3. Set TNS_ADMIN Path –>

(copy the Production TNS _ADMIN path, to New path & modify the tnsnames.ora & listener.ora with new SID & hostname)

4. Start the listener

5. Once listener started, create a context file using by


6. run auto config


7. Database configuration part finished

8. Go to application tier,

perl appsTier
