Set oraInventory for EM12c Agents during GUI Installation

So, this is a peculiar problem that I had to dig to find a solution for; each time I deployed an agent to Add Targets to EM12c where no other Oracle Software was located, it would always created the oraInventory located under the $HOME directory. In my case, /home/oracle/oraInventory. This is quite annoying because for […]


Starting NFS quotas: Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused

While trying to setup NFS on an OVM 3.2 configuration on OEL 5.9, I followed the documentation to the letter but when time came to start the NFS daemon I kept getting the error above. After a little googling, it turns out that RPCBind may not be running. [root@ovm /]# rpcinfo -p rpcinfo: can’t contact […]

Grid Infrastructure Cluster Health Monitor – A Deconstruction

While digging around Grid Infrastructure logs, I came across this new feature with 12c called Cluster Health Monitor (CHM) – I knew the MGMTDB database was good for something when I opted to install it even though it is not required. From Oracle’s Documentation “The Cluster Health Monitor (CHM) detects and analyzes operating system and […]

EM12c, Weblogic, and Finding Your Way Through Active Directory

Introduction As with any adventure, there are hurdles along the way. I started my previous post with the sections below but instead I ended up composing the linked article. What I had started with was how to query the Active Directory tree where groups with multiple subgroups from a Weblogic Server for Enterprise Manager User […]
