[INS-21003] Installer has detected that an invalid inventory pointer location file was specified

While installing Oracle Apps R12.2.6, I did face below issue:

Error

[INS-21003] Installer has detected that an invalid inventory pointer location file was specified

Solution

Make sure /etc/oraInst.loc file contains below entries.

  • inventory_loc=/home/oraInventory
  • inst_group=oinstall

If we don’t have above entries, rapidwiz will fail in validation as shown below and we can find the above error in /tmp logfiles.
