Hi Nilesh,

“Use of uninitialized value $ENV{"ORACLE_HOME"}”

Have you checked if the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set correctly?

Best regards,

Hello Gurus,

I was applying a bug patch on the database on windows. Opatch successfully applied, but the post installation step "datapatch" faced error.

The sqlpatch_invocation.log has below

QL Patching tool version Production on Wed Sep 23 06:16:57 2020 Copyright (c) 2012, 2017, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Please refer to MOS Note 1609718.1 and/or the invocation log D:\Oracle\Database12cR2\cfgtoollogs\sqlpatch\sqlpatch_2144_2020_09_23_06_16_57\sqlpatch_invocation.log

I re-created the directories "OPATCH_SCRIPT_DIR,OPATCH_LOG_DIR" with the same path as mentioned in MOS Note 1609718.1 and also I rolled backed the patch and updated opatch with latest version but still same issue.

Could you please advise.

Thanks & Regards
