Oracle10g Grid Computing with RAC
Chapter 9 -Managing and Using Oracle Grid Control

Installation of Grid Control Server and Agent

Next, the Summary of Software components is displayed before the actual copy and installation.

Then progress of the installation is shown next.  

Once the installation of the Agent is completed, the Agent residing on a typical host begins to communicate with the Grid OMS which has been defined. On the Grid Control Web Console, in the targets page you can see the additional entry for the new host where the Agent is just installed. All the resources residing on the target host are automatically added to the appropriate resources tabs. Thus the auto-discovery process adds all the relevant resources for the monitoring.

Next, the Installed Products screen shows a situation where multiple Oracle Homes exist on a single host. After the installation of the Agent you would also see other Oracle Homes if you have previously installed them.

Establishing Preferred Credentials in Grid Control

Just like in its predecessor Oracle Enterprise Manager, you establish a set of preferred credentials at both the database and server level for each server and database you want to manage; this preferred credential entry screen is shown in Figure 9.2. The preferred credentials are used to establish the active connections to the servers and databases to actually perform the required actions.
