We have 3 node RAC Primary and a 3 node RAC Standby part of our Production Dataguard setup. We are using DBConsole to monitor the databases in our environment.
The agent and console was up on the Primary site and the Production database was being continuously monitored using the GUI.
Recently as part of maintenance activity the database roles have been switched.
My question is :
Can we just proceed to start the emagent and console on the new primary site (which was not running initially as it was a standby previously) and continue to monitor the environment?What is the risk involved in doing so?
I know it's not the question you asked but Data Guard broker makes this simple and is a great option.

If I were going to use EM I would make sure that:
1. I deploy Enterprise Manager agents to the both primary and standby servers.
2. The Standby database(s) are added to to Enterprise Manager.
