      Hi DBA's

      i am trying to apply cpu patch on one of our ORACLE_HOME and ASM_HOME while performing $opatch lsinventory i am gettting the following errors
      $ opatch lsinventory
      Invoking OPatch

      Oracle Interim Patch Installer version
      Copyright (c) 2007, Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.

      Oracle Home : /opt/app/oracle/product/
      Central Inventory : /opt/app/oraInventory
      from : /etc/oraInst.loc
      OPatch version :
      OUI version :
      OUI location : /opt/app/oracle/product/
      Log file location : /opt/app/oracle/product/

      Inventory load failed... OPatch cannot load inventory for the given Oracle Home.

      LsInventorySession failed: Unable to create patchObject

      OPatch failed with error code 73

      Please suggest i tried detaching ORACLE_HOME and reattached it when i re attached it it doesnt have ASM and CRS home entries
      here is what i have in /opt/app/oraInventory/ContentsXML/inventory.xml

      <HOME NAME="" LOC="/opt/app/oracle/product/" TYPE="O" IDX="1">
      <NODE NAME="node1"/>
      <NODE NAME="node2"/>

      This is a 2 node cluster on the other node i am able to get the results from lsinventory.

      PLease advise
