The ownership of oraInst.loc inside <grid home> was different on both Nodes-

[[email protected] ~]$ ll $GRID_HOME/oraInst.loc
-rw-r----- 1 root root 55 Jul 7 2016 $GRID_HOME/oraInst.loc



[[email protected] ~]$ ll $GRID_HOME/oraInst.loc
-rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 127 Jun 21 2016 $GRID_HOME/oraInst.loc

 

opatchauto looks up the ownership of <GRID HOME>/oraInst.loc to determine the owner of <GRID_HOME>, in order to run cluvfy.

Since, oraInst.loc was owned by root, it assumed the owner of <GRID_HOME> to be root and the mentioned message was displayed

 

 

Ensure the ownership of <GRID HOME>/oraInst.loc is proper across each Node.

If incorrect, then change the Ownership to Grid User & re-run opatchauto.

 

 

OR Change file permission of Patch location as follows.

 

chmod -R 775 <unzipped patch location>

chmod -R 775 /u01/patch/32545008
