The Oracle Home /a01/appstier/UAT/fs2/EBSapps/10.1.2 is not registered with the Central Inventory.  OPatch was not able to get details of the home from the inventory.

ERROR: OPatch failed because of Inventory problem.

When we apply patch in oracle home, OPatch checks for the inventory to understand the patch detail which already present. It gives the error above if it does not find any patch details. Since oracle home is not registered with central inventory, opatch could nt get any of the patch details thus it threw an error. We need to attach this particular oracle home to central inventory in order to overcome this error. This is one of the method to overcome this error.
