Opened a SR with Oracle on this one.  Their first response was to send back the 
discovery process steps that are listed in the docs, which I"ve already gone 

This is on a Windows 2003 server.  There are no registry keys associated to the 
database.  I checked the inventory.xml file in the oracle\inventory path and no 
mention of the database in question.

I did a registry search and a file system search for the database name and 
found nothing.

Yet, the Agent11g discovery STILL finds this old deleted database.

Anyone got any other ideas of where this information might be hiding that the 
agent is finding?

Subject: Ghost database 

So, I have finally gotten 11g Grid control configured (thank you Chris!).  Been 
playing with it for a few days, looking under the hood, etc.
I installed an agent on a small test box I have been using prior to 11g Grid.  
I have 11gr2 installed on that in the default home.  I messed up a database on 
the test box and ended up blowing it away using DBCA.

But, the agent reported to GC that the database exists and GC is showing it in 
an unknown state.

Where would the remote agent be obtaining this information for this now ghost 
database?  Inventory was my first clue, but not finding it.

Any ideas?
