Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 10.2.0.1 to 11.1.0.1 [Release 10.2 to 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Grid Console shows following metric alert for the Agent(oracle_emd) target:

Metric: Nmo Setuid Status
Message: NMO not setuid-root (Unix-only). Run root.sh script and correct this problem

This metric is triggered if the <AGENT_HOME>/nmo binary does not have the necessary permissions and ownership.
Steps in <Note 271598.1>: Grid Agent Configuration: Certain Operations from Grid Console Fail With 'ERROR: NMO Not Setuid-root (Unix-only)'
have been followed already to correct the permissions but the Metric Alert is not clearing from the Console.
