Download the Mass Agent Deployment from here.
First unzip the grid control installation files.
cd /host/software/oracle/GridControl mkdir 10205_agent cd 10205_agent unzip ../Linux_x86_64_Grid_Control_agent_download_10_2_0_5_0.zip
The prerequisites for each platform vary, so it is not worth trying to specify them in this article. Instead, refer to the Prerequisites for your platform in the installation guide. For the most part, if you already have an Oracle product installed on the server, the chances are you have already met all the prerequisites.
Start the installer using the following command.
$ cd /host/software/oracle/GridControl/10205_agent/linux_x64/agent $ ./runInstaller
Accept the "Additional Management Agent" option by clicking the "Next" button.
Enter a suitable parent directory, then click the "Next" button.
Enter the email and My Oracle Support details if desired, then click the "Next" button. If you choose not to enter the details, click the "Yes" button on the subsequent message.
Wait while the prerequisite checks are performed. If any fail, correct the issue before proceeding by clicking the "Next" button.
Pick the required language support, then click the "Next" button.
Enter the management server name and port, then click the "Next" button.
Enter the agent registration password defined during the grid control installation, then click the "Next" button.
If you are happy with the summary information, click the "Install" button.
Wait while the installation completes.
When prompted, run the configuration script as the "root" user, then click the "OK" button.
Wait while the configuration assistants complete.
If the Agent Configuration Assistant fails to start the agent with a timezone error, enter the correct value for the "agentTZRegion" parameter in the "$AGENT_HOME/sysman/config/emd.properties" file, delete the following files and retry the configuration step.
$ rm -r /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/sysman/emd/state/* $ rm -r /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/sysman/emd/collection/* $ rm -r /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/sysman/emd/upload/* $ rm /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/sysman/emd/lastupld.xml $ rm /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/sysman/emd/agntstmp.txt
Click the "exit" button.
Check Agent Status
The following command checks the status of the agent.
$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/bin $ ./emctl status agent Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 5 Grid Control 10.2.0.5.0. Copyright (c) 1996, 2009 Oracle Corporation.

The server should now be visible as a target on the Grid Control.
Starting and Stopping the Agent
The following script shows how the agent is started and stopped.
# Start agent /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/bin/emctl start agent # Stop agent /u01/app/oracle/product/agent10g/bin/emctl stop agent
Yet another Setup Tool (YaST) is used by Grid Control to perform some Linux administration tasks. It is recommended that you install this tool on all Linux hosts monitored by Grid Control. The tool is available here.
