I thought I see how the cloning of an Oracle Home worked through Grid Control.

My source system (QA1) is AIX 6.1, Oracle My target system is also AIX 6.1. GC is EDV referenced below is the target system to which I am trying to clone the Oracle_HOME.

Things went pretty well until I got to the "Step: Update Built-in Clonable Home<$execId=63C3EBEF20E5A470E040A8C0170A7E57$stepID=2863323$jobName=CLONE_20HOME_203$%7C9$%7C09_209_3A04_20AM$stepName=updateBuiltInClonable>" step. It failed with the following:


./bin/java -cp
oracle.sysman.emd.ecm.clone.DestEnvironment -isPreCloneNeeded "/oracle/EDV/102_64" |

/oracle/EDV/em_1/agent10g/perl/bin/perl ./ -waitForCompletion ORACLE_HOME="/oracle/EDV/102_64" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="db_1" 2>&1 ./runInstaller -silent -clone -waitForCompletion -waitForCompletion "ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/EDV/102_64" "ORACLE_HOME_NAME=db_1" -noConfig

I've changed the JRE_LOCATION in the oraparam.ini file in both the new Oracle Home and the Grid Control Directory on the new server to be an absolute path rather than a relative path, but still no luck.

Can't seem to get anything on the Web or through Metalink that helps me figure out what I might have to change to get this last piece to run.

Anybody seen this before?
