Hi All,

Trying to work out best way to install OEM 13C agent on a host with multiple oraInventory folders.

/etc/oraInst.loc does NOT exist.

No central oraInventory.

When installing agent which oraInventory should the configuration point to?

    In order for a Home to be discoverable by the Management Agent, it needs to be registered in an inventory that the Management Agent recognizes. The default inventory is the central inventory, which in Unix systems is found in /etc/oraInst.loc. Any Home registered here will automatically be discovered.

    If there are other inventories in the host, they need to be added to the inventory list of the Management Agent. A line must be added to $EMSTATE/sysman/config/OUIinventories.add.

    If the inventory is not found here, the Management Agent will not know of its existence, and hence any Home registered there will not be discovered.
