can you enumerate the steps you followed to do cloning..and alternatively how can i reproduce your test case..i am asking this because i am kinda of curious on what platform and what version of oracle you had this error..as we clone production to test once every three months...
what errors did you get in the trace files and alert logs..

1) production ,development on different physical servers
2)production , development, same configuration in number of data files, volume names, difference is the size only and also the SID
1)backup production, development
3)create file system on development.
4)restore production to development.
5)after which, couldnt start oracle, this is NORMAL, since we had to edit the control files
6)umount filesystems, /oracle/sid LAST ONE to be unmounted
7)create, modify users, ora, adm

init(SID).ora, init(SID).sap to change sid, hostname
and now issued svrmgrl but failed. the message was Can't open shared library: /oracle/PRD/lib//libcntlsh.sl.1.0
