To be fair to Oracle even if it was supported you cannot expect them to spend too much time worrying about versions that have been out of mainline support for years

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

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
