EM 13c: Deployment of Enterprise Manager 13c Cloud Control Agent Fails Using emcli submit_add_host at Initialization in Progress (Doc ID 2224132.1)

Last updated on APRIL 13, 2017

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 13.1.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Enterprise Manager (EM) 13.2 Cloud Control Agent deployment using emcli with the submit_add_host verb.

Multiple EM 13.2 Agents can be deployed, specifying a host list along with this basic command:

emcli submit_add_host

Many of the parallel Agent installation sessions seem to hang at Initialization in Progress, near the beginning of the process.
The session will appear to hang for hours but some of the jobs will proceed to install the Agent.
Deployments can be cancelled through EM 13.2 Cloud Control and submitted again. Sometimes the Agent deploys successfully on retry but it can also hang again.

OSWatcher shows server CPU runqueue exceeding the number of available CPUs for a number of parallel Agent deployments. 
Server Performance was also negatively affected in this case.
