there are so many reason as of why an agent can't connect. -you ensure there is only one agent running -after configurating the agent, you performed the emctl agent stop/clearstate/start/upload using the version of emctl in agent10g/bin and not another. -it is the right passwd -you are not caught in a stupid TZ probleme between agent and master for the msg wrong passwd is just the symptom of an agent that refuses to connect and yield a wrong message. -you have exhausted all logs in 'agent10g/sysman/log' -you cursed Oracle grid control enough time B. Polarski _____ From: Mercadante, Thomas F (LABOR) [mailto:Thomas.Mercadante@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, 11 September, 2006 1:48 PM To: oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Oracle 10 Agent Discovering 9i databases All, I am finally trying to get 10g Grid up and running. I am trying to get our 10g agents (10.1.0.2.0) to discover and connect to our 9i databases (188.8.131.52). I have successfully connected to our 10.2 databases. I found the targets.xml file in the 10g agent home that looks like it replaces the snmp_rw.ora file that the 9i agent used. But I am getting a connect error (invalid usercode/password) when the 10g agent tries to connect. Any ideas?
