While patching via cloning 11gR2 ORACLE_HOME directories as per <Note 1136544.1>, it fails at step "Switch to the cloned home" when using Opatch to switch to the GI home as below:

(root)# export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/grid/11.2.0/grid_1
(root)# $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/crs/ -patch -desthome=$ORACLE_HOME

This fails with the following error:

Using configuration parameter file:
/u01/grid/11.2.0/grid_1/crs/install/crsconfig_params Can't open /set numbercrs/utl/crsconfig_dirs: No such file or directory at /u01/grid/11.2.0/grid_1/OPatch/crs/ line 427
