based on your error, it looks like dba did run, but you're missing other pieces that the dbca script invokes

try reinstalling the product, there's no good reason I can think of that you'd have dbca without its component pieces

That is because you did the ls in ORACLE_HOME.  The binary files are in $ORACLE_HOME/bin

I believe the issue is in your environment variables.  Looks like you might have more than one Oracle product installed.

Notice the error message:  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/dbca: line 122: /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/bin/platform_common

If found dbca in the db_1 folder.  The file it cannot find is in dbhome_1.

Get everything pointing to the same HOME and it should work.

Based on the the message where /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin/dbca is looking for  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/bin/platform_common

My guess is that this home was copied from somewhere else and on the other server it was in the second directory.  Or it was moved on the same machine.  The ideal solution is to properly install Oracle in /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1.  However, to get around your current problem, I believe that a symbolic link should do the trick

ln -s /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1

That of course assumes that /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1 does not already exist.
