The 'oraenv' script is used to allow the DBA to set a common environment for all users and make it easier for users to move between databases.
When calling the oraenv script from a Unix user id which is not in the 'dba' group, the following messages appear:
This is because "$ORACLE_HOME/inventory/ContentsXML/oraclehomeproperties.xml " is not accessible by non-dba users
