Cannot read value from field PARAMETER.CONFIG'

This error appeared when adstrtal.sh was done on an instance. This came immediately after upgrading the OS of the instance from Solaris 8 to Solaris 10. So the usual suspect was the OS upgrade. However 356434.1 says that this happens when GUEST user is end dated. We queried the DB:

SQL> select end_date from fnd_user
2 where user_name='GUEST';

END_DATE
---------------
11-APR-08

SQL>

Sure enough it was end-dated. What a co-incidence ! It was end dated with the date on which OS upgrade was planned. So we issued this command:

update fnd_user set end_date=null where user_name='GUEST';

Issue was solved.

please i'm also having a similar error after running an import from another similar instance. Cannot read value from field PARAMETER.CONFIG

Cause: The field PARAMETER.CONFIG could not be located or read.

Action: This error is normally the result of an incorrectly-entered field name string in a trigger, or a field name string that does not uniquely specify a field in your form. Correct your trigger logic to precisely specify a valid field.
Starting forms server for PROD on port 9000.
Cannot read value from field PARAMETER.CONFIG


Please help
