INS-32031 INS-32033 while installing on linux


The OUI for failed with below errors:

[INS-32031] Invalid Inventory Location

[INS-32033] Central Inventory Location is not writable


I had specified inventory directory as “/u01/app/oraInventory”

I checked /u01/app and found that it has oracle:oinstall on oracle directory but there is no oraInventory directory.

I was hoping OUI should create the oraInventory directory automatically under /u01/app. But that did not happen and the reason was app directory was owned by root:root.

As root I did:

mkdir –p /u01/app/oraInventory

chown –R oracle:oinstall /u01/app/oraInventory

chmod –R 775 /u01/app/oraInventory

Then it worked. So for the first Oracle install on a machine need to make sure that this is created and owned by oracle software owner.
