A check of the logfile reveals this error –

11g Grid Control installation fails at ‘ Add-on OMS Side Configuration ‘ with following error message in
oracle.sysman.plugin.virtualization.oms_2010-06-01_01-24-07-PM.log:

at java.lang.Terminator.setup(Terminator.java:41)

at java.lang.System.completeInitialization(System.java:114)

at java.lang.Thread.(Thread.java:127)

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Can’t recognise platform – Unix

The following file needs to be backed up and edited as follows

Go to the newly installed Oracle Management server HOME/bin folder –

cp addonca.pl addonca.pl.org

Edit the file –

vi addonca.pl

Look for Unix under osname and change it to AIX –

else
{
$osname = “Unix” ;
}

to

else
{
$osname = “AIX” ;
}

Click on RETRY and the installation completes.
