OEM 13.3 agent takes exclusive lock on Central Inventory due to missing write permission on the inventory owner's group.

As soon as EM agent starts, it creates a locks sub directory without Oracle Inventory Group write permission (typically, oinstall) due to this it prevents other OS user to use opatch or OUI without manually cleaning up the locks sub directory.


 In the above example, note that write permission was missed for sub directory locks and inventory.lock file created by EM Agent.
