First, I suggest reviewing the following to understand how discovery works:
Understanding Database Discovery in Enterprise Manager 12cCloud Control [ID 1400463.1]
Next, I would look at the known issues section of this doc particularly #5.
How To Manually Add Database Targets in 12C Cloud Control [ID 1371846.1]
Just to add to Dave's point, the databases need to be promoted because they appear in EM as target. So please follow the doc and let us know if you still can't get to work.
Also, manually adding targets may only end up causing more problems so first try and make sure that the auto discovery works.
Thanks for highlighting those docs, both are a very good read in addition to the main guides. Having gone through them both for a better understanding I then followed the hint you gave about /etc/oratab and that was indeed the problem. Once we fixed that the database was auto-discovered and is now appearing as a target in EM.
I am now prev-validating the EBS Suite discovery and it's failing a few pre-req checks, which I'll need to fix, but I am closing this thread as fixed as you've answered my question on the database discovery problem.
Many thanks for the quick reply!
Thanks for heads up about using the manual method. Fortunately, the notes that Dave pointed me to did the trick and the database is now appearing. Now onto the actual EBS Suite discovery, which seems even more challenging. :-)
