check if EM agent running or not. usually the error comes when the agent is down

it means The execution was suspended because the Agent was unreachable.

Check two things
1. from host homepage are you able to execute any host command , like ps -ef
2. from database homepage are you able to run any sql command, like select * from dual

the solution is available in this pdf ( High Availability Architecture and Best Practices)

check it ...

Thanks Guys for your help but i solved the problem by reconfiguring the database control reprository.

I got this error because we connect the machine to the domain after installing Oracle and changed its IP address.

I followed the step mentioned in this link
