How to move the central Inventory (oraInventory) to another location.
1. Find the current location of the central inventory (normally <path>/oraInventory):
2. Open the oraInst.loc file (by default this is in /etc or /var/opt/oracle depending on which Unix / Linux platform you are using or it can also be $ORACLE_HOME/oraInst.loc file) and check the value of inventory_loc
Remark: The oraInst.loc file is simply a pointer to the location of the central inventory (oraInventory)
3. Copy the oraInventory directory to the destination directory
4. Edit the oraInst.loc file to point to the new location
