Due SAP architecture, when the Oracle DB is installed as RAC or ASM, the is placed in a different location than ORACLE_HOME.

This is in the SAP documentation:

 For installations with Oracle 11g (or higher) RAC or ASM, the profile is located in the directory $SAPDATA_HOME/sapprof.

DP tries to search the file in the ORACLE_HOME:

UNIX systems:ORACLE_HOME/dbs/
Windows systems:ORACLE_HOME\database\



To solve this, you can create a softlink on ORACLE_HOME to the current

ln -s $SAPDATA_HOME/sapprof/ ORACLE_HOME/dbs/

For Windows you can create a direct access link in the corresponding paths.
