[nwaddr:] [tid: 1] [userId: oracle] [ecid: 0000,0] Problem extracting permissions file null

Issue can be reproduced using below steps:

1. Install and configure simple domain containing Admin and managed servers

2. Run copyBinary command as below

copyBinary.cmd -javaHome C:\Oracle\Java\jdk1.8.0_162 -archiveLoc C:\Oracle\WLSbinary.jar -sourceOracleHomeLoc C:\Oracle\MiddAishTest

3. Copy generated WLSbinary.jar to target machine

4. Run below command to extract the jars.

java -jar <PATH to generated archive file> -targetOracleHomeLoc <Target Home PATH>


java -jar C:\Oracle\WLSbinary.jar -targetOracleHomeLoc C:\Oracle\MiddAishTest

-- This is required as pastebinary command cannot be used on remote host where no Oracle Homes are present, reference <Note 2387936.1>.
