I think this will give you what you are looking for:

Grid Control Target Maintenance: Overview of Target Discovery in 10g Grid Control (Doc ID 239224.1) (probably applies to 11g as well)

Goes through the various locations the agent searches for target information.

Subject: Ghost database

So, I have finally gotten 11g Grid control configured (thank you Chris!). Been playing with it for a few days, looking under the hood, etc. I installed an agent on a small test box I have been using prior to 11g Grid. I have 11gr2 installed on that in the default home. I messed up a database on the test box and ended up blowing it away using DBCA.

But, the agent reported to GC that the database exists and GC is showing it in an unknown state.

Where would the remote agent be obtaining this information for this now ghost database? Inventory was my first clue, but not finding it.

Any ideas?
