Set oraInventory for EM12c Agents during GUI Installation

So, this is a peculiar problem that I had to dig to find a solution for; each time I deployed an agent to Add Targets to EM12c where no other Oracle Software was located, it would always created the oraInventory located under the $HOME directory.

A Useful Metric Extension in EM12c for Unsupported Oracle Database Versions

Metric Extensions (ME) in EM12c are the new User Defined Metrics from EM11g. It’s an awesome extension of EM12c to monitor non-standard metrics.
