How to remove OEM agent in the release 3 of the Oracle Enterprise Manager.



OEM 12c R3 has a very useful Perl script which allows removing an installed OEM agent in the host. The process is quite straightforward just by invoking the AgentDeinstall.pl script located under:

$AGENT_HOME/sysman/install/AgentDeinstall.pl

[oracle@ol6-112 12.1.0.3.0]$ /u01/app/oracle/agent12cr3/core/12.1.0.3.0/perl/bin/perl /u01/app/oracle/agent12cr3/core/12.1.0.3.0/sysman/install/AgentDeinstall.pl -agentHome $AGENT_HOME


 Agent Oracle Home: /u01/app/oracle/agent12cr3/core/12.1.0.3.0


NOTE: The agent base directory: /u01/app/oracle/agent12cr3 will be removed after successful deinstallation of agent home.
