EM 12c: Testing Credentials in Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control Gives Message: ERROR: NMO Not Setuid-root (Unix-only) (Doc ID 2215118.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 19, 2023

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using "Test and Save" for the Named Credentials of a target (AIX) Host in Enterprise Manager (EM) 12c Cloud Control gives this Message:

ERROR: NMO not setuid-root (Unix-only)

Yet the 'nmo' executable in the EM Agent Home is indeed setuid (and owned by root), and the filesystem has no mount options.
Consequently, no jobs can be created on the on the target server.


This (& another) AIX Host was added by cloning the Agent from a previous (AIX) Host,
and the error does not occur on the original Host/Agent, only on the cloned Agent.

EM Agent on Target Host is indeed w/the Dec. 2015 Bundle Patch.
The $AGENT_BASE dir is mounted on filesystem "/app" w/no mount options
The $AGENT_BASE/sbin/nmo file is owned by user 'root' and group 'dba', which
is the primary group of Agent owner ('oracle') w/permissions "-rws--x---".
