3 Update Existing Agent Image to Agent Image with BP1 included

This chapter describes how to update the existing downloaded Management Agent image in your environment to a Management Agent image with BP1 included. Once you update your image, you will not be required to apply any BP1 patches to the Management Agents that will be installed using this updated image.

At present, updated images with BP1 included are available for Linux32 and Linux 64 bit platforms only. When Management Agent binaries with BP1 included are released for other platforms, you just repeat the steps described in the following sections to update them.

The version of Management Agent binaries with BP1 included is the same as the earlier 12.1.0.1. release. The following topics are discussed:

3.1 OMS and Target Management Agent Hosts are on the Same Platform

When OMS and target Management Agent hosts are on the same platform, complete the following:

  1. Download the Management Agent zip file from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at the following location:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oem/grid-control/downloads/oem-upgrade-console-502238.html
    
  2. Copy this file into the OMS_HOME/sysman/agent directory.

    For multi OMS cases, copy the file into the Oracle Homes of all OMS instances.
