    Hi there,
    well i prefer to use cloning method, like this i have the same level of patches for my agents.

    take a tar file from fresh installation with all patches
    untar at target
    $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT/oui/bin/runInstaller -detachHome $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT -invptrloc xxx
    $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT/oui/bin/runInstaller -clone -forceClone ORACLE_HOME=xxx ORACLE_HOME_NAME=agent_home -noconfig -silent -invptrloc xxx ORACLE_HOSTNAME=xxx (if you’re using virtual adresses)
    modify $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT/sysman/config/OUIInventories.add (if you have several installations on Inventory)
    modify $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT/sysman/config/emd.properties (AgentListenOnAllNics if you’re using virtual adress)
    agentca -f -t -d
    modify $ORACLE_HOME_AGENT/sysman/emd/targets.xml to reflect your Oracle instance (name, port etc …)
    emctl secure agent

  8. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Try to set the following environment variable and try again
    export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/jdk/bin:$PATH

  9. Riz Says:

    Dears Kamran and Momo

    Thanks for your help.Both the solutions are viable.Thanks a lot.
    Momo.you could post your cloning method in detail.It would be a great help for new DBAs.

    Hello Kamran,
    I have installed oracle 10g on my windows machine and created 4 databases,can I configure OEM grid control on the same machine and monitor all the 4 databases as well as other databases which are on othermachines and are connected by LAN what are the prerequisite for the same I need to start it from scratch.
    Do you have any document on the same.Thanks
    With Database control I can monitor only 1 database at a time.
    I am new to OEM so might be wrong while explaining you.

    Thanks a lot.

  16. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hey Kamran,
    Can you please help me to resolve the below error while installing the GRID software?

    OUI-25031:Some of the configuration assistants failed. It is strongly
    recommended that you retry the configuration assistants at this time. Not
    successfully running any “Recommended” assistants means your system will not be
    correctly configured.
    1. Check the Details panel on the Configuration Assistant Screen to see the
    errors resulting in the failures.
    2. Fix the errors causing these failures.
    3. Select the failed assistants and click the ‘Retry’ button to retry them.

    Configuration assistant “OMS Configuration” failed
    The “/ora01/app/oracle/OracleHomes/agent10g/cfgtoollogs/configToolFailedCommands”
    script contains all commands that failed, were skipped or were cancelled. This
    file may be used to run these configuration assistants outside of OUI. Note
    that you may have to update this script with passwords (if any) before
    executing the
    same

    Hi Kamran
    I am installing oracle grid control 10g(10.2.0.3)on oracle linux.but at the end of the installation i m getting the error when configuration assistant get checked.OMS configuration-/u01/oracle/product/10.2.0/oracleHomes/agent10g/cfgtoollogs/configToolFailedCommands”
    script contains all commands that failed, were skipped or were cancelled. This
    file may be used to run these configuration assistants outside of OUI. Note
    that you may have to update this script with passwords (if any) before executing the same.in the log file when i checked for it gets hanged while applying -OPatch succeeded.

    Applying of patch /u01/oracle/product/10.2.0/OracleHomes/oms10g/install/oneoffs/p4141076_101042_GENERIC.zip completed successfully

    Now applying patch:/u01/oracle/product/10.2.0/OracleHomes/oms10g/install/oneoffs/p4488715_101042_GENERIC.zip it gets hanged.
    in the oracle documentation it says that before upgrading to oracle 10.2.0.4 we need to apply 10.2.0.3 grid control and apply the patch set which is in 10.2.0.4.
    my database is 10.2.0.4 on oracle enterprise linux 5.
    my question we need to install the same OEM grid control for the same database edition.
    can you please give some information regarding this.

    thanks
    k.goutham

  23. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    It’s not required to install the database with the same Grid Control version

    Hello Kamran,

    Hope you are doing well !!

    you are really great.. Thanks for posting the videos

    During Installation of Gride i am getting below error

    The “/u02/OracleHomes/agent10g/cfgtoollogs/configToolFailedCommands” script contains all commands that failed, were skipped or were cancelled. This file may be used to run these configuration assistants outside of OUI. Note that you may have to update this script with passwords (if any) before executing the same.

    I search on metalink and found rpm is missing
    but i am not able to fine rpm glibc-devel-32bit-2.4-31.2.x86_64.rpm
    Can you please provide me Link to download the above rpm

  27. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hi Altaf
    There’re a lot of reasons for getting the mentioned error. You need to check not only the installation log file, and also OMS log files and see that’s the main reason
    Good Luck
