How to make available a different agent platform on EM13c

Suppose you have only AIX platform available on your EM13c and you want to deploy agents on Linux servers. This is what one needs to do:

Step 1: Check the available platforms on OMS:

oracle@oms-server]$ emcli login -username=sysman
Enter password :

Login successful
oracle@oms-server]$ emcli sync
Synchronized successfully
oracle@oms-server]$ emcli get_supported_platforms
-----------------------------------------------
Version = 13.4.0.0.0
 Platform = IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
-----------------------------------------------
Platforms list displayed successfully.

Step 2: Login on EM13c GUI and follow the path:
Setup -> Extensibility -> Self Update

Step 3: Go to Agent Software

Step 4: Select the new platform you need:

Step 5: Click download and follow the instructions given in the pop up window:

oracle@oms-server]$ emcli import_update -omslocal -file=/app/oracle/downloads/p30812864_112000_Generic.zip
Processing update: Agent Software - Agent Software (13.4.0.0.0) for Linux x86-64
Successfully uploaded the update to Enterprise Manager. Use the Self Update Console to manage this update.

After download you will see that the Linux platform has been downloaded (but not yet available for deploying):

Step 6: Click Apply to make it available:

Step 7: Now we check again the available platforms:

oracle@oms-server]$ emcli get_supported_platforms

Version = 13.4.0.0.0
 Platform = IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
