OPatch cannot find a valid oraInst.loc file to locate Central Inventory.

OPatch failed with error code 104


For now we have two options to fix since Opatch is looking at oraInst.loc in default /etc/oraInst.loc  but unfortunately its not there is in different location. 

In my situation oraInst.loc file located in /u01/app/oraInventory/oraInst.loc


Work Around: 

a) Use the -invPtrLoc /etc/oraInst.loc  ( use the proper location of that file where its located oraInst.loc )


 ./opatch lsinventory -all -invPtrLoc /u01/app/oraInventory/oraInst.loc
