Last updated on APRIL 24, 2018
Applies to:Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 184.108.40.206.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
1 The following Error occurs using opatch lsinventory or apply.
OPatch failed with error code 255
Home name= OracleHome, Location= "/apps/oracle/product/12.1.3/" Inventory load failed... OPatch cannot load inventory for the given Oracle Home. Possible causes are: Oracle Home dir. path does not exist in Central Inventory Oracle Home is a symbolic link Oracle Home inventory is corrupted
2 OPatch failed with error code 73
After fixing error 1 above, "opatch apply" throws "JAVA_HOME is not defined" error even $JAVA_HOME is defined and "echo $JAVA_HOME" displays the JAVA_HOME value correctly in the same Unix shell where the opatch apply command is executed.
The same identical opatch script runs fine in other environment on different machine.
