Cloud Control 12c Host Command Execution Error

(Doc ID 1993186.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version to [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When running a host command for single host this syntax works:

grep "This file" /etc/oratab

When switching to multiple target mode it fails and requires escaping all non-alphanumeric characters inside single or double quotes like this:

grep "This\ file" /etc/oratab

This occurs for normal or privileged host credentials using sudo.
