Diffrent version of Oracle Prerequisite Checker

Hi,

I'm using OEM 13.3.0 fully patched up to latest as of 2020-02-29. I noticed that when deploying an agent on Solaris (I don't think the OS matters) that the Oracle Prerequisite Checker is at different version depending if you deploy the agent using setup/add target manually or you use a gold image.

I'm explaining:

  • I first deploy an agent on server 1.
  • I patched that agent and its plug-ins.
  • I created a gold agent image based on that agent
  • I deployed this gold agent image on server2 and I got an error saying that the OS is not certified

After looking at the logs below, we can see that the initial deployment used version 13.8.0 of Oracle Prerequisite Checker but the Gold Agent Image used version 13.9.1. Which is quite normal because OPatch was upgraded to 13.9.3.3 (which I think, contains the updated version of Oracle Prerequisite Checker).

As I think the version of Solaris is higher than the one required, why the deployment is reporting the OS not being certified? Another bug?

Initial deployment:
