Golden Gate 12.2 Monitoring JAGENT 

Not Starting Post Upgrade

After an upgrade from 12.1 to 12.2 JAGENT, the monitoring agent is not starting up.

Even after this if the agent doesnt start, please check the prm file for the agent. 

[ggsadmin@ bin]$cat /ggsadmin/app/cqxad02p/ggate/12.2.0/dirprm/jagent.prm

the JAGENT.jar file has no executable permissions and hence it was not starting up

[ggsadmin@cfg]$chmod  755 /ggsadmin/app/cqxad02p/jagent12.2/oggmon/ogg_agent/dirjar/jagent.jar

[ggsadmin@cfg]$ll /ggsadmin/app/cqxad02p/jagent12.2/oggmon/ogg_agent/dirjar/jagent.jar
-rwxr-xr-x 1 ggsadmin oinstall 363165 Oct 12  2015 /ggsadmin/app/cqxad02p/jagent12.2/oggmon/ogg_agent/dirjar/jagent.jar

After this change, the JAGENT started fine.
