EM13cR2: Emctl Stop Blackout Job Is Not Stopping Blackout - status is "Suspended on Blackout"

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



You have two OEM Blackout Jobs created for a target set.

1: Start_Blackout job runs: emctl start blackout <blackout name> -nodelevel

2: Stop_Blackout job runs: emctl stop blackout <blackout name>

The above works in OEM 12c environments without issues.


In 13c though, the Stop_Blackout job does not stop the blackout; instead, the Stop job appears to hang, and its status in the EM UI is "Suspended on Blackout".
