$opatch lsinventory

OPatch cannot continue because it would not be able to load OUI platform dependent library from the directory "/u01/oracle/product/". The directory does not exist in the Oracle home.
This could be due to the following reasons.
(1) Incompatible usage of java with OUI (32/64 bit).
(2) Wrong 32-bit Oracle Home installation in 64-bit environment (or) vice-versa.
Please contact Oracle support for more details.
