    AV Agent and OS Collector after server reboot

      We are using Oracle AV Server and AV Agent on version with Bundle Patch #1.

      If the target server reboots, both AV agent and OS Aud collector does not come up automatically ?

      Is that a normal behavior ? or we have to do some modifications to get it automatically started.

      Appreciate your guidance.

          dear viral,

          This is normal behavior of Oracle Audit vault server, if the source database restarts you should have to start agent and collectors manually.

            You could put it as a startup script, but there isn't anything already written. I call a cron script every hour to make sure that the collectors and agent is up. We had to setup trusted connections from the avagent -> avserver to start the collectors:

            This is on the agent server. We call it every hour from cron.

            # If it is not running then start it
            if [ ${exit_status} -eq 0 ]; then
              echo "Starting AV agent"
              avctl start_oc4j
              echo "AV agent is already running"
            start_collector () {
            export collector_name=$1

            export exit_status=$?
            if [ ${exit_status} -eq 0 ]; then
              echo "The collector ${collector_name} for ${source_name} was started"
            elif [ ${exit_status} -eq 99 ]; then
