Install Enterprise Manager Command Line Interface EMCLI

Oracle tips by Kumar Viswanathan

This is an excerpt from the book Oracle Application Change Management Pack ACMP Handbook by Kumar Viswanathan.

EM CLI is a command line utility that is provided within the Oracle 12c Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to perform various functions through Windows command prompt or Linux/Unix terminal sessions such as below:


§  Login to Oracle Enterprise Manager

§  Implement batch scripts using languages such as Jython on Oracle Management Server (OMS)

§  Synchronize EM CLI with Oracle Management Server (OMS)

§  List the targets that are being registered and monitored in Oracle Enterprise Manager

§  To remove or delete specific targets

§  Install or delete agents from specific targets

§  Deploy plugin on Oracle Management Server (OMS) or an agent

§  Update a plugin with a new version

§  List available agents in the software library within the Oracle Enterprise Manager installation


EM CLI executable is available already during the installation of Oracle 12c Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. The path where it will be found is under the <MIDDLEWARE_HOME>/oms/bin as shown in figure 4-1.

The figure 4-2 provides the parameters available to run the emcli executable.

As Oracle Application Management Suite, is to be installed as a plugin within the Oracle 12c Enterprise Manager Cloud Control we would have to setup emcli to configure and install plugins.


Let’s move forward with the installation of the Oracle Application Management Suite and in this section we will cover the EM CLI setup.
