Re: Anyone running oracle_home with just Intelligent agent installed

I had raised a TAR in February asking if I could do a standalone OIA install.

### Detailed Problem Statement: ###
I would like to be able to install the Intelligent Agent standalone in a small ORACLE_HOME.
The server has seperate 8.1.7 and 9.2.0 installs and multiple ORACLE_HOMEs. Rather than using an active O_H to configure I.A, I prefer a seperate O_H for the I.A.
However, it seems that the Server Enterprise Edition installer does not allow me to select the I.A. alone, without selecting the RDBMS Server, which would unncessarily increase the size of the O_H ### What were you trying to accomplish when the problem occurred? ### Install Intelligent Agent alone in a "small" ORACLE_HOME

### The step-by-step actions which preceded the problem: ### The OUI does not allow me to select I.A alone

The Oracle Support Analyst's Response :
Fromt he inforamtion you have provided it seems that you want to install Intelligent
agent in a separate $O_H.

You need to do a custom installation and you need to install the RDBMS Core component. There is no way around this. You need instal l the RDBMS and select just intelligent agent.

However, I dropped the idea of installing the OIA on the 80 odd-database servers.
I just use DBSNMP to connect via SQLNet from the OEM Console. I don't use OEM Jobs or Alerts,
relying on CRON jobs and SQLNet.

@doing it for 9i though?
