EM 13c: CDB / PDB Target Status in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Shows Availability Evaluation Error after Agent Installation or Upgrade (Doc ID 2340602.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 18, 2023

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Pluggable database (PDB) target status shows as Availability Evaluation Error in Enterprise Manager (EM) 13c Cloud Control after upgrading EM Agents to 13c.
The same symptom may be observed after EM Agent installation, also.
Some container database (CDB) targets are similarly affected.


Checking the <agent instance base>/agent_inst/sysman/log/gcagent.log, the following errors appear for numerous targets:

Obtaining the status of that target from the EM Agent gives thsi result:
