After discovery, Targets are stuck in 'Status Pending (Target Addition in Progress)' status in EM Cloud Control UI

- At the Agent side, the 'emctl config agent listtargets' command does not list the newly added targets, for example:

./emctl config agent listtargets
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 2
Copyright (c) 1996, 2016 Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.
[agenthost.domain, host]
[agenthost.domain:3872, oracle_emd]

Above output shows only the Host and Agent targets.

-  Verifying the target details at the repository database (as SYSMAN user) shows that the target is not yet promoted:

 managed_status=2 and promote_status=1 indicates that the target is not yet promoted to the agent side, hence its status cannot be computed.

-  Attempting to execute a simple 'OS command' job against the host target fails with the error:

Suspended : Agent is not Ready

-  The Agent homepage in the Console UI shows the below message:

NMO not setuid-root (Unix-only). Run root.sh script to correct this problem. The next OS Command Job submitted will clear this alert.

This issue can affect any target type (other than host and agent).
