I just got some feedback from Dev on this, and the answer I got was different. Here is what I got from dev. (I hope the image gets through, if not let me know and I can forward it separately)  

For 9208 the Db cloning doesn't work from database home page , you have to navigate to Database provisioning page and there is a link there for 9i specific db as highlighted below :

I got no replies about this but it turns out to not be supported. It's even documented. A case of RTFM.

Subject: Clone of oracle home fails in OEM12cR2  


I'm trying to use OEM12cR2 to clone the oracle home of a database but it keeps failing. I have no trouble cloning any 10.2 or 11g oracle homes. The process keeps failing with this message:  

The output of the directive is:

ERROR: No message specified for logging

The Version is :

Prototype mismatch: sub main::trim ($) vs none at /oracle/product/agent12101/core/ line 393.

Anybody able to clone 9i homes with OEM12c?
