Maybe I'm not understanding what you mean by cloned. You can duplicate a database with rman. If you mean making an image of the database and executables onto the new box, you might have issues, or not, who could say? Oracle sets cpu_count dynamically when you start up, and some other things are dependent on this (see the Oracle on windows doc). EE doesn't care about running on a limited number of cores, AFAIK.


-- is bogus.
