How to Resolve PRVG-10467 : The default Oracle Inventory group could not be determined

  • by

PRVG-10467

Saw error PRVG-10467 during the validation check before grid installation.

[grid@primary01 ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME
[grid@primary01 grid]$ ./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n primary01,primary02 -verbose

ERROR:
PRVG-10467 : The default Oracle Inventory group could not be determined.

PRVG-10467 means that CVU verification check failed to know current inventory group or find the Oracle inventory file.

Solutions

If this is the first time to install Oracle product in this server, it's pretty normal, you can choose one of the following ways to solve it.

1. Provide Inventory Group Name Explicitly

If the name of Oracle inventory group is different from the default name oinstall, you can provide it to let the program know how to process the validation items.

For example, we'd like to use dba as the inventory group.

[grid@primary01 grid]$ ./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n primary01,primary02 -verbose -orainv dba

With parameter -orainv, we can specify the name of Oracle inventory group as we defined.

2. Re-run Validation Check

If the inventory group name is the same as the default name oinstall, you can just re-run the program, PRVG-10467 should disappear. Or, just ignore it.

More Considerations

If it's NOT the first time to install Oracle product in this server, you should check the following file for sure.

[root@primary01 ~]# cat /etc/oraInst.loc
inventory_loc=/u01/app/oraInventory
inst_group=oinstall

This file contains two items:

  • inventory_loc: Oracle central inventory location
  • inst_group: Oracle inventory group name

Both values are what CVU wants to know.
