Symptoms

 On the first screen of Exadata Database Machine discovery, when you select the monitoring agent and you set the OS credentials to read the databasemachine.xml file, the Credentials Test fails with an Error:

 

Authentication failed on row 1 of Schematic Files table.

 

 

However, you are able to access this DB node successfully via ssh and login to the node as the agent user.

 

gcagent.log shows:
