How to clone Oracle Software fast and easy

This is the approach I’m usually taking to clone the Oracle Software from one server to another.

[oracle@PROD product]$ zip -r 11204_clone.zip 11.2.0.4/
 adding: 11.2.0.4/ (stored 0%)
 adding: 11.2.0.4/owm/ (stored 0%)
 adding: 11.2.0.4/owm/jlib/ (stored 0%)
 adding: 11.2.0.4/owm/jlib/owm-images.jar (deflated 2%)

..........

  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/okinit0 (stored 0%)  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/okinit0 (stored 0%)  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/nmozip warning: Permission denied zip warning: could not open for reading: 11.2.0.4/bin/nmo  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/agtctlO (stored 0%)  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/nmcbufp (deflated 65%)  adding: 11.2.0.4/bin/impdpO (stored 0%)

...........

adding: 11.2.0.4/odbc/mesg/oraodbcus.msb (deflated 68%)
 adding: 11.2.0.4/odbc/mesg/oraodbcja.msb (deflated 68%)

zip warning: Not all files were readable
 files/entries read: 40416 (4.9G bytes) skipped: 3 (144K bytes)
[oracle@PROD product]$ exit

Now send the zip file to the target server:

[oracle@PROD software]$ scp /u01/app/oracle/product/11204_clone.zip DEV:/tmp

Create the same oracle path for the ORACLE_HOME

mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product

Unzip the archive to previously created folder:

unzip 11204_clone.zip -d /u01/app/oracle/product/

Navigate to this clone folder within the unzipped oracle software:

cd /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/clone/bin

[oracle@DEV bin]$ pwd
/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/clone/bin
[oracle@DEV bin]$ perl clone.pl ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4 ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OH_11204
./runInstaller -clone -waitForCompletion "ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle" "ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4" "ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OH_11204" -silent -noConfig -nowait
