Log in as root.
Go to the /etc/ directory.
Create a file named oraInst.loc in the /etc/ directory.
Add the following to the /etc/oraInst.loc file you just created:
inventory_loc=<path>/oraInventory inst_group=<group id>

This section describes documentation errata. It includes the following topics:
In the "Access Control Rules" section of the Oracle Virtual Directory Product Manuals for Releases 10g (10.1.4.x), the documentation for "Entry Permissions," specifically, the descriptions for the BrowseDN and ReturnDN permissions, is misleading.
To clarify, both the BrowseDN and ReturnDN permissions must be set to Grant for browse or retrieve operations on source repository entries to be processed. Contrary to the 10.1.4.x documentation, browse or retrieve operations will not be processed if either the BrowseDN or ReturnDN permissions are set to Deny.
