Gold Image Creation of DB Home fails with below errors -

[oracle@hostabc oracledb]$ $ORACLE_HOME/runInstaller -createGoldImage -destinationLocation $goldImageDir -silent
Launching Oracle Database Setup Wizard...

[FATAL] [INS-32707] The specified destination location (/oracle/goldimage) does not have enough free space.
ACTION: Provide a destination location path with at least (537,415) MB of free space.

Here "goldImageDir" is a User declared Variable pointing to the Path where the Gold Image Zip would be created.

The Source Oracle Home & OPatch Directories Sizes seem to be OK.

[oracle@hostabc]$ du -sh $ORACLE_HOME
10G /oracle/ABC/

[oracle@hostabc]$ du -sh OPatch/
278M OPatch/

Still runInstaller complains that it needs 530+GB (537,415 MB) for an Oracle Home of size just bigger than 10G.

Also, There is 20G of free space in the Mount Point–

[oracle@hostabc]$ df -h /oracle
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/orcllv 30G 11G 20G 34% /oracle


The Oracle Home Directory Path has Soft Links.
