OPatch could not find OUI based inventory in the Oracle Home. But, OUI location is provided using ‘oui_loc’ option
I encountered the following issue when I was applying a patch on one of the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) installations.
OPatch could not find OUI based inventory in the Oracle Home. But, OUI location is provided using ‘oui_loc’ option. Please check the inventory of the Oracle Home and run OPatch again.
OPatch failed with error code 255
Navigate to <MW_HOME>/web_tier/ohs_111/oui/bin
