The 11g management agent cannot be directly installed using the Oracle Universal Installer GUI as in the 10g version of the product. We can use any of the following methods to deploy the agent on target nodes.
• Agent Pull method
• Agent Push method
• Agent clone.
This note shows us how to deploy the agent from the EM Grid Control interface.
From the Deployment tab in the EM Grid Console, click on Install Agent (under Agent Installation) and then Fresh Install.
Enter the following details :
• The host where we want to deploy the agent
• The OS user account and password on the target machine
• The top level path of the directory under which the ‘agent11g’ sub-directory will be created.
• Management Server registration password
