I am starting up the 8.1.7 intelligent agents on a HP-UX machine we have and it does not discover all the databases running on this server, just the ones physically entered in the oratab file.

Do I need to manually add all the missing SIDS to the oratab file? I thought by setting the wildcard for the SID in the oratab file would accomplish a trap all type thing but it doesn't seem to.

Any suggestions on getting the intelligent agent to discover all the databases will be appreciated.
