Hi,

I have installed grid control agent 12c under user oracle -> we use oracle userid to install oem12c grid agent
but i have a database hypd running on the same server under user ohyp. we used ohyp userid to install hyperion database.

    Assuming the database in question is an Oracle database, check that:

    - The agent software owner can read file /etc/oratab or /var/opt/oracle/oratab depending on the platform.
    Note: For database discovery to work, it is necessary to have an appropriate entry for the database in the oratab file.

    - The agent software owner (oracle) should be in the same OS group with the database software owner (ohyp) to allow the agent to read/execute certain files in the database home.
