Application of <Patch 10114705> (Database Bundle Patch 6 for Exadata) and <Patch 10110978> (Grid Infrastructure Bundle Patch 4 for Exadata) has caused EM monitoring of certain cells to stop.

Trying to add the cells again results in this error:


Failed to contact the target to be added. Following errors were received while testing the connection to the target. Update the properties accordingly, try Test Connection for testing the properties before saving.
