Grid Control post installation tips

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting



After installing Oracle 10g R2 and Grid Control R1, install was successful.  However, after restarting I was returned errors.  I there any type of grid control post installation steps that I may be missing?



Oracle docs offer a host of information regarding Grid Control installation and post installation.  In particular, you should be sure to complete these steps after installing Grid Control:

  1. Complete post installation of Grid Control by running

    • This is especially important if you have completed a silent installation because it completes the Oracle Management Agent, Management Services, and Management Repository databases post-installation.

    • If you have instead used the interactive mode to install Oracle Enterprise Manager, you would have ran the before installation completion.

    • If you used the cluster installations, you will need to run on every host installed.

  2. Make sure parameters and settings are appropriate after installation. Set any that may not be.

  3. Be accustomed to, and sign up with Oracle MOSC.  This is an important step in your post-installation with Grid Control because it is here that you will find many valuable resources for patchsets and patches that you might need.

  4. If you are using Windows systems, you will also need to set the appropriate credentials so that the Jobs system can work with Enterprise Manager in order to correctly finish post installation for Grid Control.  This is because LocalSystem is the default user for Management Agent services, and in order to submit jobs, the user has to enable "Log on as a batch job" privilege.

  5. The last post-installation step after Grid Control and Oracle 10g have been installed is to configure the ASM Targets and Database for proper monitoring.  This is because initially the Database Home page does not display monitoring data, and may cause the database to be displayed as down.  This being, you have to first display a DBSNMP password in order to keep the DBSNMP account unlocked.  This is also seen in Automatic Storage Management, which is why you must also provide the ASM SYS password there.

If you need more in depth information regarding the post-installation steps for Oracle 10g and Grid Control, you might also want to take a look at this publication on Oracle 10g Grid & Real Application Clusters.
