Create a Simple Job for a Host Target in EM12c

Afternoon folks! I received a text from a customer of mine asking whether I had any documentation to create jobs in EM12c.

It was about time that I started working with the new release. I’ve had to upgrade my current 11g install, and since I’m on a documentation high these days, I put something together to help anyone else who wants to go through the install.

The latter […]
