In your first command output, you're calling emctl with a full path from the EM12c agent's core directory (you can see the "Cloud Control 12c Release 3" tag).

In your second command output, you're calling emctl from your $PATH, from somewhere else, probably the database home directory (you can see the "Database Control Release 10.2.0.4.0" tag).

It appears that the pad4009 database is not a known target within your EM12c Cloud Control environment, and that the pad4009 database is configured with a local database control instance. You need to discover this database within Cloud Control and promote it as a managed target before the agent will know about it to black it out. Or, if Cloud Control is actually sending you alerts when this database goes down, you need to find what other name was used when it was registered in EM12c.
