Click Finish when the installation process is complete.</p><p>6.4 Changes to Advanced Settings or Credentials while an EP Ops Agent is runningOnce the Oracle Database EP Ops agent is running, any changes to Advanced Settings (e.g., port, host) require the Override agent configuration data setting to be set to True.</p><p>Credential addition/changes do NOT require the Override agent configuration data setting to be set to True. However, credential changes do require the End Point Operations Management agent be restarted to takefulleffect.</p><p>Changing the credentials of a running EP Ops agent instance in vROps causes multiple instances of the agent to be running on the target host. Therefore, whenever a customer needs to change their credentials (except whensettingthemforthefirsttime),thecustomerwillneedtoaccessthetargethost,navigatetotheEndPoint Operation Management agents install directory, and restart the agent.</p><p>TorestarttheManagementagent,performthefollowingcommands:</p><p>Linux (terminal):/bin/ep-agent.sh restart</p><p>Windows (command prompt):\bin\ep-agent.bat restart</p><p>6.5 What to do next</p><p>AfterEndPointOperationsforOracleDatabasehasbeeninstalled,configureyourOracleDatabasecredentials.vRealizeOperationsManagerwilldiscoverandmonitortheobjectsthatbelongtotheplug-ins.</p></li><li><p>6 Blue Medora VMware vRealize End Point Operations for Oracle Database</p><p>7.
