RC-00009: Unable to locate Apps Clone

Hi All,

Issue while running pre-clone After Database upgrade.

Error stack while running from 11gR2 Oracle_Home in Applications Environment:

# Calling StageDBTechStack...

Error while attempting to read or match version

Thanks there was a known bug for staging Applications 11i clone after 11gR2 upgrade.

MOS tech note:

Perl Adpreclone.Pl Dbtier Fails After Upgrading Database to 11gR2 [ID 1267473.1]


This tech note recommends to apply patch 10182813 to solve this issue.

There are Pre-req patches need to be applied before applying this patch, so please refer patch readme for Installing this patch and its dependent patches.

After applying all of these patches i was able to run pre-clone successfully.

Happy cloning :)
