Oracle Inventory corrupted
We installed several QA systems (BI, GRS, Portal, ECC) with their ORACLE_HOME's within the same UNIX box but when SAP ask for each ORACLE_HOME's name and path's to install we mistakenly don't change the name and just the path so the only recognized installation in the inventory is the last one.
Because of the above the oracle opatch utility is getting the following error with all but with the last one. So we cannot do patching to this instances. Can any one suggest a solution to re-inventory all oracle home's with the proper names?
$ $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory
