    OEM Agen on HP-UX

    821637
      Looking for guidance in installing the agent on an hp-ux itanium server so that it can be monitored by the 12c console. Has anyone accomplished this task that can shed some light on the process?

          Aside from some difference in packages/prereqs, it's much the same as installing the agent on Linux. You can do the agent deploy from the Console, or various other advanced installation types. http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/install.121/e22624/install_agent.htm#EMBSC181

            I've seen this documentation and it does look straight forward providing there is a 12c agent for the hp-ux platform. If there is I haven't been able to locate it yet.

              The documentation does a good job of displaying the steps to deploy the agent to a target. The biggest problem that I seem to be having is identifying an agent for 12c and hp-ux. The OMS is installed on a linux server but we have databases running on hp-ux platforms that we would like to monitor/manage from the console.

                First download the HP-UX Ithanium agent in the 12c OMS. After that you can follow (although here the OMS is on Windows) this manual: http://dbakevlar.com/2012/07/silent-deploy-of-em12c-agent-on-hpux/

                    This is covered in the Prereqs under Software Availability. You have to download any non-Linux agents since your OMS is on Linux.

                    In short, be sure that your Software Library is configured, figure out if you are running in Online or Offline Mode for Self Update, and then follow the docs on acquiring additional agent images:

                      We needed to set up our library correctly and then everything else started falling into place and we were able to download and deploy the agents we needed. Thanks.
