Cloning an Oracle Home

I accidently installed Oracle on the wrong directory. So I decide to clone the home installed to the new location and delete the original one. Here is what I did:

1. Copy the home to the new location:

cp -rp product /u01/app/oracle

2. Go to the new home location, cd oui/bin and then run
./runInstaller -clone ORACLE_BASE="/u01/app/oracle" ORACLE_HOME="/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="home1"

It asked to run as root.
