E business suite clone without adpreclone

In trying to clone an e biz suite to a completely new environment it appears the system is missing a few patches without which adpreclone will not run.
The production system both application and database have been saved from a cold backup .
Has anyone been through this before or know a way to get around it . I know Oracle may not completely support a method that differs fully patching and following the methods on Metalink.

Thanks

You can workaround the situation as below
1) restore the cold backup to new server/new environment.
2) New server can have different ip address than the original production system , but hostname must be same as production
3) bring up the services and you will be able to login
4) Done Cloning and continue
OR
incase you dont want the same hostname as production, then do the necessary adclone patching
a) run preclone
b) change the server's hostname and/or ip address accordingly as per your choice
c) run post clone steps
d) up the services and u r done

Thank you . This is being copied from production so hostname cannot be the same.
