1-Locate the central inventory
cat /etc/oraInst.loc  or /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc (Platform specific)

2-Take a back up of central inventory or rename in all the nodes.
mv oraInventory oraInventory.bk

3-cd $ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin

4-Execute runInstaller with attachHome option for Cluster Home.

./runInstaller -silent -ignoreSysPrereqs -attachHome ORACLE_HOME=”Cluster Home Location” ORACLE_HOME_NAME=”Name of the cluster Home”  LOCAL_NODE=’node1′ CLUSTER_NODES=node1,node2 CRS=true

5-Execute runInstaller with attachHome option for Oracle Home
./runInstaller -silent -ignoreSysPrereqs -attachHome ORACLE_HOME=”Oracle Home location” ORACLE_HOME_NAME=”Name of the Oracle Home” LOCAL_NODE=’node1′ CLUSTER_NODES=node1,node2

6-Verify the inventory creation in all the nodes.

7-Verify and compare XML files size inside oraInventory/ContentsXML across all the nodes.
