Patching Oracle failed and succeeded
I patched one of my oracle databases through EM Gridcontrol and received a succeed message but upon further investigation I found this in the log file.
Thu Apr 20 10:20:33 2006 - Attempting to apply patch to Oracle home (G:\oracle\product\10.1.0\oracle_home)...
Thu Apr 20 10:20:34 2006 - Could not locate emdpatch.pl... Fallback to OPatch
---------- Error Message ----------
Could not find etc\config\inventory to apply patch
----------- End Message -----------
Thu Apr 20 10:20:35 2006 - Patching failed.
Live by the GUI, die by the GUI.
Sorry, you need to understand what you are doing before you can do it.
Jeff - I'd say the nuisance lies with Oracle. How can you report a successful patch when in reality it was unsuccessful. If I did this to my clients I wouldn't have a job for very long.

Oracle has decided to have an interface through the web and I expect it to work.
I'm not lashing back at you Jeff. I'd just like to be able to install the correct patch.
Here is the metalink report
The problem is I'm going through Grid Control???
