    INS-08106: Unexpected error occurred while loading the 'InventoryUI'

    MS Sauter

      Have done alot of installs over time, but this error has me stymied. Here are the givens:

      2-node Linux RHEL 5 OS
      Will ASM over fiber (using ASMLib)
      Attempting to install Oracle 11gR2 (

      SSH is working and runcluvfy gives no errors on wither nodes.

      When running through the installer, I am on the "specify Installation Location" menu.
      I input Oracle Base: /apps/oracle
      I input Software Location: /apps/grid/product/11.2.0/grid_1

      I hit NEXT and afeter a short time, I get the following error:

      INS-08106: Unexpected error occurred while loading the view 'InventoryUI' associated to state 'inventory.'
      No further details are given.

      I look in the install log for this run and see these last final lines (no errors appear in this log prior):

      I realize I can open an SR in MOS, but was hping that maybe someone in this forum had encountered this error previosly and might have some sugestions or a solution that worked for them. The only same error code in MOS relates to to:

      Unexptected error occurred while loading the view 'GridPlugPlayInfoUI' associated to state 'GridPlugPlayInfoUI', but this has a fix in /etc/hosts, but is NOT the same error I am getting.

      Thank you in advance for any help.
