Set oraInventory for EM12c Agents during GUI Installation

So, this is a peculiar problem that I had to dig to find a solution for; each time I deployed an agent to Add Targets to EM12c where no other Oracle Software was located, it would always created the oraInventory located under the $HOME directory. In my case, /home/oracle/oraInventory. This is quite annoying because for subsequent Oracle Software installs, this incorrect location is always chosen. Instead, I want it to go the, lets say /u01/oracle/oraInventory.

I knew there must be a way to get around this, and after digging in MOS and Oracle Docs, I found the section below. Documentation 9.4.1 section i.


To further expand on the documentation, there’s a couple of sections which describe the usage.


Looking at Table 9-2.


I had to give this one a try! So, after you get to the Add Targets home page, enter the Host Name(s) and find the section at the bottom for “Additional Parameters”. Simply put this section in it INVENTORY_LOCATION=/u01/oracle/oraInventory.


Proceed with the rest of the installation steps, and at its completion check the host(s) folders.


So, at the end of the day I have to give credit to the amazing documentation Oracle has put together for OEM. You just need to know what you want, then ask the right question.

Hope this helps!
