Issue with opatch lsinventory - Oracle / HPUX 11.23

Dear All

We are trying to check whether any interim patch has been installed in one of our SAP (ECC) server with Oracle on HP-UX 11.23 platform.

We have copied the opatch utility and installed the same as per SNote 304608.

Output of perl -v is as follows:

db:orarp2 97> perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.3 built for IA64.ARCHREV_0-thread-multi

(with 8 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Output of opatch lsinventory is as follows:

/usr/bin/perl ./ lsinventory

Using ORACLE_HOME/oui to look up oui libs...

Cannot find

ERROR: OPatch failed because of Inventory problem.

I have checked the ORACLE_HOME, it is pointing to /oracle/RP2/920_64

Also, I have checked that with orarp2 user, I am able to read oraInst.loc file - located at /var/opt/oracle. Also, the inventory exists at /oracle/oraInventory

Please suggest what could be wrong in this. Is there any other way to check for interim patches, in case opatch fails?

Thanks in advance.
