The agentDeploy.sh script mentioned in the error is not created on teh remote server.

Changes

Issue was noticed only if the source agent has the 12.1.0.5.170815 patch 26449443 applied.
If the source image is based on a vanilla agent, without any extra patches, then the gold image agent deployment works fine.
