I have a question to ask.

I already have Oracle 8i client installed on one of our Dell PowerEdge servers.

We have got a new rack mount Dell PowerEdge server.
We want it to be an exact mirror of the other server already in use.

Can I copy the directory $ORACLE_HOME to the new server instead of installing Oracle8i Client from scratch ??

Wud there be any files left missing if I do that ?

Your suggestions will be a great help !
