ERROR: The home is not clean. This home cannot be used since there was a failed OPatch execution


[oracle@seha1 grid]$  ./gridSetup.sh -silent -applyRU /dboracle/software/33204768

ERROR: The home is not clean. This home cannot be used since there was a failed OPatch execution in this home. Use a different home to proceed.

One -aplyRU failed due to old OPatch version. After updating OPatch, I tried to install RU but it failed with the error.


We can't do much here.


Executing "gridSetup.sh" Fails with "ERROR: The home is not clean"  (Doc ID 2279633.1)

As per the above doc, we need to remove the home and bring the zip again and unzip here.


[oracle@seha1 grid]$ pwd
/grid/app/19.0/grid
[oracle@seha1 grid]$ cd ..
[oracle@seha1 19.0]$ rm -rf grid
[oracle@seha1 19.0]$ mkdir grid
[oracle@seha1 19.0]$ cd grid
[oracle@seha1 grid]$ ls -ltr
total 0
[oracle@seha1 grid]$ pwd
/grid/app/19.0/grid

Let's copy the software again.

$ scp LINUX.X64_193000_grid_home.zip oracle@192.168.126.11:/grid/app/19.0/grid
oracle@192.168.126.11's password:

Let's unzip. Giving few lines from the last.

finishing deferred symbolic links:

Let's copy the latest Opatch.

Let's try the -applyRU once again.


[oracle@seha1 grid]$ ./gridSetup.sh -silent -applyRU /dboracle/software/33204768
Preparing the home to patch...

The log can be found at: /tmp/GridSetupActions2021-11-02_03-04-50PM/installerPatchActions_2021-11-02_03-04-50PM.log

Now it is successful.
