Cloning is the process of copying an existing entity to a different location while preserving its state. Some situations in which cloning Oracle Fusion Middleware is useful are:
- Creating a Middleware home or Oracle home that is a copy of a production, test, or development environment. Cloning enables you to create a new Middleware home or an Oracle home with all patches applied to it in a single step. This is in contrast to separately installing, configuring and applying any patches to separate Oracle homes.
- Preparing a “gold” image of a patched home and deploying it to many hosts.
When you move a Middleware home, you create an archive of the source Middleware home and use the archive to create the copy of the Middleware home:
- ./copyBinary.sh -javaHome /u01/jdk -archiveLoc /u01/test.jar -sourceOracleHomeLoc /u01/Oracle/Middleware/fmw_soa
After this copy the jar file to new location and run the following command :-
- ./pasteBinary.sh -javaHome /u01/jdk -archiveLoc /u01/test.jar -targetOracleHomeName /u01/osama/
It’s very simple and useful
