    How to fix the agent problem..?

    When I start the agent in Oracle in HP UX by emctl start agent it says agent is alreday running. If I stop it by emctl stop agent, it says agent not running.

    How to solve this problem..?

    In the OS level what process to be looked into to know is there is any process running from the agent..?

    Kill the "running" agent:
    #lookup the pid:
    $ ps -ef|grep agent
    $ kill -9 {pid}
    Then fix the agent:
    ## EM Agent fix
    export AH=/opt/oracle/oms/agent10g
    cd $AH/bin
    ./emctl stop agent
    rm -r $AH/sysman/emd/state/*
    rm -r $AH/sysman/emd/collection/*
    rm -r $AH/sysman/emd/upload/*
    rm $AH/sysman/emd/lastupld.xml
    rm $AH/sysman/emd/agntstmp.txt
    rm $AH/sysman/emd/blackouts.xml
    ./emctl start agent
    ./emctl upload agent

    Answering your question: ps -ef | grep emagent

    What happens if you do: emctl status agent ?

    Edit: Got side tracked for a couple of minutes and LKBrwn posted first - his advice is sound.
