I'm triying to clone oracle agent, when I run this command

$./runInstaller -clone -forceClone ORACLE_HOME=/oracleagent/agent10g ORACLE_HOME_NAME=agent10g -noconfig -silent

I get this output (errors)

Error in GetCurrentDir(): 13
Error in GetCurrentDir(): 13
Error in GetCurrentDir(): 13
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

No pre-requisite checks found in oraparam.ini, no system pre-requisite checks will be executed.



I've been talking with someone by metalink but he can't could help me... until now

Thank You

    You don't say what version you're cloning, but this is the option that always worked for me with on AIX. In, you can clone agents from the console.

    On the destination host, go to $Agent_ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin/ directory and execute the following command:

    make sure /etc/oraInst.loc points to OEM inventory.

    ./runInstaller -clone -forceClone ORACLE_HOME=<agent home path> ORACLE_HOME_NAME=<home name>
    -noconfig -silent b_chainedInstall=false

    Where ORACLE_HOME is the unzipped Agent Oracle home on the destination host

    The parameter b_chainedInstall is set to false and is set to AGENT, so that it will be treated as an additional agent install. These parameters are required only while cloning the chained Management Agent.

    If I were, I would go with AgentDownload Scripts. It is very simple, customizable and mostly bug free.

    Check the owner of the directory that Oracle will be installed and correct it.

    Sorry for the really late reply, but I just stumbled across this question.

    Check the permissions and ownership on the underlying directory where the filesystem is mounted.

    For example, if you're installing to somewhere within "/oracle", don't just check with the filesystem mounted:

    # ls -ld /oracle
    drwxr-xr-x 12 oracle dba 4096 Jun 03 15:07 /oracle

    Unmount the filesystem, and look at that directory's permissions; do you get something like:

    # umount /oracle
    # ls -ld /oracle
    drwxr-x--- 12 root system 4096 Jun 03 15:07 /oracle

    If so, you've hit a long-standing Java issue (the Oracle installer uses Java); it hates when it doesn't have read and execute permission to the underlying directory. The fix is simple:

    # chmod o+rx /oracle
    # mount /oracle

    and re-run the installer. This shouldn't open up any security concerns, as the mount point should be empty when unmounted, anyway.

    Not sure if this helps others that have this same error. I ran across this same error. I was however running a different command. The problem is some scripts may create temporary sh output or temporary files. if you running a script remotely or if you're running it out of a directory that doesn't have permissions for the script to create the necessary files you will receive this error. My solultion was to do a change directory within my script prior to executing the command I wanted to run.
