      Hi Atul ...
      I am trying to setup a DMZ server ... But we dont want to have the shared appltop.

      The steps that I would follow are ... restore the appltop. comntop and oratop. Run appsTier.
      Apply patch 3259205 on the DMZ node and the TEST node.
      Change the profile options through frontend.

      Now my issue is that when I try running ... I get an error ...
      " Checking for cc...
      Unable to locate 'cc' utility in path
      Unable to locate all utilities with system path."
      There was no problem with ar, make and ld utilities.
      " This is what we got ...
      $ rpm -qa
      gcc-3.3.2-5 "
      " Checked in /usr/bin
      ar,ld and make exist but no cc or gcc "
      What do I do ... Its an AIX system.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Waitig for your reply anxiously,
      Fouad Bandarkar.

      As mentioned in my previous comment for any issues raise them in forum at

      As clearly shown by error message

      system utilities like cc, ar .. are either not installed or not in user path

    • At 12:14 AM, Blogger Warrick said…

      Generally this error is thrown when adcfgclone cannot see the cc, make etc.

      Check your $PATH variable and ensure it has the '.' at the end of the PATH.
      eg echo $PATH= blah:.

      i just wanted to know is it possible to copy application tops without shuting the db or services during cloning of apps 11i


    • At 11:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      In AIX, cc is not under /usr/bin. It is under /usr/ccb/bin or something like that.

      As root user

      # find / -name cc

      You should be able to find the cc executable. Add it to the path and re-run
