Symptoms

Upgrade Grid Infrastructure from 11.2.0.4 to 12.1. The 12.1 Grid Infrastructure is not installed directly on the cluster via OUI, but rather using clone method that cloned from another cluster per Creating a Cluster by Cloning Oracle Clusterware.

Deploy the software and clone.pl command has been run successfully. When running "$ Oracle_home/crs/config/config.sh", OUI reports error:

Cause - No additional information available.
