[RDBMS] File /etc/oratab is not accessible

Situation:When running the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) a dialog window appears with the following error message:

File /etc/oratab is not accessible.

Problem:
After installing Oracle Database 11gR2, you missed to run the two scripts orainstRoot.sh and root.sh.

Solution:
As root user, execute 
$ORAINVENTORY/orainstRoot.sh and $ORACLE_HOME/root.sh
