The Grid Agent 10.2.0.2 on OpenVMS in general discovers targets by reading the "oratab." and suggesting databases (and their listeners) when adding database targets.
Use "Targets - Databases - Add" to get to "Add Database Instance Target".
On rare occasions, this process does either not list any databases on the console, or does not produce any target entries in the ORA_EMSTATE_EMD:targets.xml file.
This procedure however is impractical and tedious in environments where a node is host to dozens of databases and/or other targets.
This article offers a simple way to populate the targets.xml on OpenVMS.
