Encountered Error While Running appsTier Preclone in R12.2

I was encountered error while running preclone on appsTier on Production(Source Instance) of Oracle Applications R12.2. The errors message was:
 START: Creating FMW archive.

I check the directory $INST_TOP/admin/log/clone and found the file CLONE2016-12-26_02-56-36_1139966449.error with following error:

The error clearly points to a problem with the oracle inventory, and when I checked there was no data about the related Oracle homes. So I had to register them manually as pointed in note “R12.2 How To Re-attach Oracle Homes To The Central Inventory (Doc ID 1586607.1)”.
We need to re-attach Oracle Homes:
/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common/oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -attachHome -invPtrLoc /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc ORACLE_HOME="/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="VIS_TOOLS__u01_common_fs1_EBSapps_10_1_2" CLUSTER_NODES="{}"

/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/webtier/oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -attachHome -invPtrLoc /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc ORACLE_HOME="/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/webtier" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="VIS_TOOLS__u01_webtier_fs1_EBSapps_10_1_2" CLUSTER_NODES="{}"

/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/Oracle_EBS-app1/oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -attachHome -invPtrLoc /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc ORACLE_HOME="/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/FMW_Home/Oracle_EBS-app1" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="VIS_TOOLS__u01_ebsapp1_fs1_EBSapps_10_1_2" CLUSTER_NODES="{}"

/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/EBSapps/10.1.2/oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -attachHome -invPtrLoc /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc ORACLE_HOME="/u01/app/TEST/R12apps/fs1/EBSapps/10.1.2" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="VIS_TOOLS__u01_VIS_fs1_EBSapps_10_1_2"
After that I could run the adpreclone appsTier without any problem.
Happy EBS Troubleshooting !
