Symptoms

Unable to discover IAS installed as different user than Agent user


Consider the case of a machine with two distinct Operating System (OS) users, part of the same OS group. One user owns an iAS 10.1.2 or 10.1.3 installation, while the other user owns a Central Agent 12.1.0.x installation.

Example
- user 'ias', group 'oracle': owns the iAS 10.1.2 installation, under $IAS_HOME
- user 'emagent', group 'oracle': owns the Grid Control Central Agent 12.1.0.x, under $AGENT_HOME.

Under default conditions, the agent is not able to discover iAS targets. The automatic discovery takes place either at the end of the agent installation, or is triggered manually from the Grid Control console.

In neither case is the agent able to discover or monitor the iAS targets.
