Oracle Management Cloud – Managing the Oracle Cloud Agent

This post is about some useful commands to administer the OMC’s Cloud agent. The very first step is to install the OMC Cloud agent. You may refer to my previous post on how to install it here.
The omcli command is located at /agent_inst/bin.
I’m skipping these 3 basic commands start, stop and status.
Here we go!
