EMCTL Script Empty

After several hours of trying to determine why when I ran ./emctl start oms absolute nothing happened.  I wasn’t even receiving an error message.  I set JAVA_HOME, OMS_HOME, ORACLE_HOME and yet nothing.  I checked ./emctl start agent and that worked without any issue, but not the emctl under the OMS home.  I was perplexed.  And then I saw metalink note How to Recreate the emctl Script for the Enterprise Manager OMS (Doc ID 1404623.1).  My file was indeed 0 bytes.  The note describes how to recreate the file.  I’ve since made a backup of the emctl for future reference.  Hopefully when I google “emctl start oms returns no information” this post will serve as a reminder.
