use OPatch.
if it not available in your local ORACLE_HOME install it from metalink.
set your PATH correctly. I use several versisons of OPatch, so keep them seperate.
oracle@mutation#export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/OPatch
oracle@mutation#./opatch lsinventory

Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 1.0.0.0.56

OPatch/docs for usage reference. We also recommend using
the latest OPatch version. For the latest OPatch version

Thanks Mahesh,

I tried opatch but it threw the following exception.
Result:

LsInventory: OPatch Exception while accessing O2O


OPATCH_JAVA_ERROR : An exception of type "OPatchException" has occurred:
OPatch Exception:
OUI found no such ORACLE_HOME set in the environment
Can not get details for given Oracle Home
An exception occurs
null


There is no Interim Patch



Can not get a list of inventory on this home.

ERROR: OPatch failed because of Inventory problem.

The Oracle home is set. I am looking thru the script to see if this is standard message that there is no patch or is it an error. Could you tell me if I need to fix anything else.

Thanks

The most common reason for this is the ORACLE_HOME defined in environment is different from what you are using. May be your ORACLE_HOME entry is wrong/with typos.
May be there are multiple ORACLE_HOMEs installed.
Crosscheck your ORACLE_HOME value and actual oracle_home you are using.

I have around 8 databases installed on that server with different ORACLE_HOME but I am setting it to a particular one using .oraenv but when I run OPatch I believe it is getting reset to some other home. I am trying to look through the perl script to find out the problem. Is there anything specific I need to do for multiple oracle homes ?

Nothing.
Just set the right ORACLE_HOME.
You no need to manipulate any perl script. It works if you set the invironment correct.
