Agent Configuration Assistant Failed/Grid Control

Troubleshooting the error oracle.sysman.emcp.agent.AgentPlugIn raised by the Agent Configuration Assistant (AgentCA)  [740628.1]

Troubleshooting the ‘oracle.sysman.emcp.agent.AgentPlugIn has failed’ error

the agent failed because I entered an incorrect agent password during the install.   Unfortunately there is no way to re-enter the password within OUI at this point so login to your server and  follow the steps below:

  1. cd $AGENT_HOME/bin
  2. ./emctl stop agent
  3. ./emctl unsecure agent
  4. ./emctl secure agent 
    • At this point you will be prompted for the agent registration password.  If you input the incorrect password it will fail.   Run this again until you enter the correct password.

  5. ./emctl start agent

Now you should be able to login to your Grid Control console and see this target.
