The purpose of this bulletin is to describe how to clone an existing Oracle10g Release 2 (10.2.0.x) RDBMS installation using Oracle Universal Installer (OUI).

NOTE: This note should only be used for cloning single-instance (non-RAC) homes. It should not be used for cloning RAC, CRS or ASM homes.


This bulletin is intended for anyone who is responsible for installing Oracle software onto a server or cloning an existing Oracle software installation.

Please note that Perl 5.6 or higher is required when cloning Oracle10g Release 2

NOTE: When cloning an installation to a new/separate server, it is mandatory to check that the server meets all of the prerequisite requirements because the "perl" cloning method (see Step 3 in the section below) does not check them. See <Note:169706.1> or the Installation Guide for a list of these.
