The error is caused when the value of s_apps_user in the $CONTEXT_FILE has “apps” (in lower case).
With this condition the command, ‘adop -status’, produces an error.

  1. Please use the Context Editor and change the value for s_apps_user from “apps” (lower case) to “APPS” (upper case).
  2. Run AutoConfig.
  3. Execute:
    $ adop -status
