Goal

How can I recreate the OraInventory on UNIX systems if it gets corrupted or removed?


Important:
If losing or finding an OraInventory corrupted, the first recommendation is to recover from backup. This document provides an alternative solution based on options with the  Oracle Universal Installer (OUI). This has only had limited testing on Oracle Fusion Middleware 10g/11g and Oracle Database Server 10g/11g installations. There may be situations where this may not work and could mean a backup as a best course of action.
