Symptoms

Opatch failed with the following error:
The patch is not applicable for /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2
patch /var/opt/data/patch/16619898 apply failed for home /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2

 

The /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2 is GI_HOME.


The same error can occur when a patch is getting applied to the RDBMS_HOME.  The error message will point to the RDBMS_HOME in that case.
