When installing the version 6.5 agent on the AIX operating system, the agent installer does not recognise the dba group of the OS account:
+ Operating System Privileges +
+ =========================== +
+ Specify an operating system user member in the operating system '' +
+ group. +
+ This account is used by the installer to grant the Oracle Collector +
+ component with the necessary READ permissions to operate. +
+ The account information will not be used or stored by the agent. +
Specify an operating system user in group '':
The OS account being used for the installation has a username which is longer than 8 characters.
Install in a username which is 8 characters or less.
Issue fixed in version 7. The latest version of Performance Analysis can be downloaded at: http://support.quest.com/Search/SearchDownloads.aspx
If the username is already 8 characters or less, please perform a manual agent installation. Please contact Quest Support for the instructions.
