OEM 12c Cloud Control – Agent Silent installation using Response File

We have come across OEM agent installation from the Cloud Control tool. This article demonstrates on how to install 12c cloud control agent uisng “silent” mode which makes use of the “response” file.

 

Environment details is as follows:

 

OMS hostname              : ora1-2
Agent will be deployed on : ora1-1

 

Below is the details of the OMS status. This is checked from the OMS server.

 

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ ./emctl status oms -details

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$

 

Login to the “Enterprise Manager Command Line Interface” client from the OMS host with username as SYSMAN and it’s password.

 

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ pwd
/u01/app/oracle/oms12c/oms/bin
[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$
[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ ./emcli login -username=sysman -password=Micromot10n
Login successful

 

Once logged in successfully, synchronize the EMCLI.

 

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ ./emcli sync
Synchronized successfully
[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$

 

Identify the list of Operating Systems for which the Agent software is available. This can be obtained by running the “get_supported_platforms” from the EMCLI interface.

 

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ ./emcli get_supported_platforms
-----------------------------------------------
Version = 12.1.0.4.0
 Platform = Linux x86-64
-----------------------------------------------
Platforms list displayed successfully.

 

Get the Agent software for the required Operating system by specifying the “platform” option and the relevant agent version by passing “version” option.
The image will be saved on to the OMS host at the location specifed under the “destination” option. Here, I’m getting the AgentImage for “Linux x86-64” platform and of version “12.1.0.4.0” as stated above and saving the AgentImage to “/u03/agent_software” location on the OMS host.

 

[oracle@ora1-2 bin]$ ./emcli get_agentimage -destination=/u03/agent_software -platform="Linux x86-64" -version="12.1.0.4.0"

Copy this downloaded AgentImage on to the target server where the Agent needs to be installed. In my case, it’s host ora1-1 where the agent will be installed.

On the target server, unzip the AgentImage software received from the OMS host.

 

[oracle@ora1-1 u03]$
[oracle@ora1-1 u03]$ mkdir 12104_agent
[oracle@ora1-1 u03]$

Edit the “agent.rsp” (AgentResponseFile) to add the details such as OMS Hostname, EM Upload Port (the HTTPS port number of OMS), Agent Registration Password (used to secure the agent), Agent Instance Home location, Agent Port number (port where Agent process will be started),b_startAgent (True if the agent needs to be started automatically after installed and configured, ORACLE_HOSTNAME (host name of the target server where the agent will be installed), s_agentHomeName (name for the Agent Home).

 

Below are the details suiting my environment.

The Agent configuration failed with error “ERROR: Agent Configuration Failed SEVERE:emctl secure agent command has failed with status=1SEVERE:emctl secure agent command has failed with status=1SEVERE:emctl secure agent command has failed with status=1”. This error signifies that the configuration failed while securing the agent.

Does that mean that the agent is not installed ? Let’s check the status and try securing the agent manually.

Agent is Not Running

 

The agent is installed but seems to be not running. Expected.
Not sure why the “agentdeploy” script failed securing the agent even though the Agent_Registration_Password is right. Let me try securing it manually with the same password.

Ok, good to see that it’s success 🙂
Let me check the status of the agent.

Agent is Not Running

 

Agent seems to be not running. Again as expected. Let me start the agent and add the targets manually using the “addinternaltargets” option at the EMCTL prompt.
