Problem Configuring Oracle Enterprise Manager

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 19, 2015

Question:  I am having a problem configuring Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM). I tried using EMCA but it didn't work.  What can I do to solve the problems I am having configuring Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM)? 

Here is the query I executed for the Oracle Enterprise Manager:

[oracle@altaiam ~]$ emctl dbconsole start TZ set to Portugal EM Configuration issue.
not found.

Additional Information:

[oracle@altaiam ~]$ echo $ORACLE_HOME

[oracle@altaiam ~]$ echo $ORACLE_BASE

[oracle@altaiam ~]$ echo $ORACLE_SID

Answer:  Keep in mind that the OEM intelligent agent on the node will use the tnsnames.ora file, check that first.

The service_names parameter is the combination of the init.ora parameters <service_names>.<db_domain> with the dot "." separating the two values.

Robert Freeman has step-by-step directions for using DBCA to configure OEM in his "Easy Oracle Jumpstart" book, and there is an excerpt here:

This window allows us to configure Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM). It also allows you to enable OEM options for automated backups and email notifications. At this point, we will not configure these options. Simply click on the next button to move to the next window.


If you like Oracle tuning, you might enjoy my book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", with 950 pages of tuning tips and scripts. 

You can buy it direct from the publisher for 30%-off and get instant access to the code depot of Oracle tuning scripts.
