    10.1.2 Inventory Creating under program file in Windows

    Kirushna

      Dear All,

       

      My Env:

      R12.2.5 & 12.1.0.2 on Windows Server 2012

       

      After upgrade from R12.1.3 to R12.2.5...

       

      fs_clone validation getting failed.

      ValidateInventory:

        [ERROR]: At least one Oracle inventory check has failed.

       

      we noticed that 10.1.2 Home entries are missing in the central inventory.

       

      We specified in REGEDIT, the central inventory to a different location in E:\ driver.

       

      All other Oracle Home entries are found in the inventory xml but not 10.1.2 Home. We checked it was created in C:\program files(x86)\oracle

       

      Why 10.1.2 home alone created in default location?

       

      Is it causing the validation error on fs_clone?

       

      Regards,

      Kirushna

          Hi

           

          Yes, The location where fs_clone is verifying to validate all the 4 oracle homes should be exist at the inventory specified location.

           

          Not sure exactly why the entries are missing, It happens to me.. Some times multiple entries.

           

          You can de-register /re-register the homes, using detachhome / attachhome and make fs_clone work.

          Or Also take backup of inventory.xml manually add the entries. (not recommended)

           

          Ex: To de-register or detach that Oracle Home:

          $ ./runInstaller -detachhome ORACLE_HOME=<Oracle Home Location> [-invPtrLoc <s_invPtrLoc>]

           

          Thanks,

            Hi,

             

            Applying patches to an Oracle Home, or performing some other maintenance tasks, is usually performed using the OPatch utility or the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI).

             

            These tools require information for each Oracle Home about the installed software, releases, interim patches, etc. This information is stored in the Local Inventory (Oracle Home Inventory) - each Oracle Home holds an inventory directory for this - and in the Central (= Global) Inventory which contains information on the Local ones. Without this information it is not possible to install/remove patches, products, etc.

             

            Attention: The Central Inventory can be rebuilt, but a removed or corrupt Local Inventory might require a re-install, restore or re-clone (if possible).

             

            On Windows the location of the central inventory is defined in registry key:

            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\inst_loc

             

            Refer

            R12.2 : How To Create, Update or Rebuild The Central Inventory For Oracle Applications E-Business Suite ? (Doc ID 1588609.1)

             

            Hope this help!

             

            Thanks

              Hi,

               

              Thanks for the inputs.

               

              On Windows the location of the central inventory is defined in registry key:

              HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\inst_loc ------> This has a value E:\oracle

               

              All home inventory pointed to the above location except 10.1.2.

               

              As an upgrade process, Used Rapidwiz to install FileSystem/core tree structure and I hope it has to create Oracle Homes inventory as per the location inst.loc in Registry File.

               

              Why 10.1.2 home was not created under it?

                Hi,

                 

                Can you check your config.txt

                 

                A text file, config.txt, stores the supplied configuration values. The name of this configuration file includes the database SID, to give a file name of conf_<SID>.txt (for example, conf_PROD.txt). This file stores the information collected by Rapid Install for all database and Applications nodes.

                Rapid Install stores copies of the conf_<SID>.txt file in three separate locations:

                • Database <ORACLE_HOME>/appsutil: This copy is used on database nodes. It is stored permanently, and not deleted.
                • $INST_TOP: This copy is used on Applications nodes in multi-node installs, and in upgrades. It is permanently stored and not deleted.
                • /tmp/<time stamp>: This copy is used by Rapid Install during the installation run. It is deleted when the installation is completed.

                Hope this helps!
