This troubleshooting note is intended as a guide to help determine the cause of some problems that may arise during a Rapid Clone of E-Business Suite Release 12.0. & R12.1
For issues with 11i, please refer to <Note 364565.1> - 'Troubleshooting Rapid Clone issues with Oracle Applications 11i'

This Note is NOT a replacement for <Note 406982.1>.
<Note 406982.1> - 'Cloning Oracle Applications Release 12 with Rapid Clone' must be followed when performing a clone of Oracle Applications R12.

The idea is to provide a detailed explanation into what each step is trying to achieve making it easier to identify which part of the clone has failed and why.

Locations of log files are listed in Section 1, and are explained in each section.  These should be uploaded when reporting a cloning issue to Oracle Support.
