It tries to create the logs but is unable to rename them.

The issue occurs with only 11.1.1.1.0 and 11.1.1.2.0

For example:
The Location specified in the option - ${ORACLE_INSTANCE}/diagnostics/logs/${COMPONENT_TYPE}/${COMPONENT_NAME},
but in the ohs.log it is seen as, it tries to create log in /USERS/bea/ohs_11.11270021790.1/as_1/instances/instance2/diagnostics /logs/OHS/ohs1/, but it fails on renaming.
