Symptoms

 Two separate stages of errors are possible after these types of failures

Please not these steps should be fine for any 11.2.0.3 or  11.2.0.4 GI. However a similar problem with 12.1.0.x should be re-evalauated as it handles inventory between the nodes differently in RAC than 11g.

1) Varoius opatch commands could fail with messages  similar to the following 

The precise messaging will vary with the offending patch number and Grid Home path

Unable to create patchObject
Possible causes are:
ORACLE_HOME/inventory/oneoffs/18193172 is corrupted
No read permission to above directory
Please remove one-off entry [ 18193172 ] from /u01/app/11.2.0.3/grid/inventory/ContentsXML/comps.xml and retry if above directory corrupted, or Please check the contents of the directory ORACLE_HOME/inventory/oneoffs/18193172


2) crsctl commands and rootcrs.pl commands can fail with messages similar to the following

ld.so.1: crsctl.bin: fatal: libclntsh.so.11.1: open failed: No such file or directory

Changes

opatch application failed at the LDom or local zone level due to running out of disk space .

This could occur during opatch auto or opatch napply. The directory you go to to recover will vary depending on command run and tme of problem.
