How to Change Properties of a Target in EM12c

One of my colleagues asked me a good question this morning about how to go about changing the properties of a target, specifically the “Contact” field.  The properties fields for a target are often over-looked, but are important to the prioritization algorithm for event management. For example, if a target’s Lifecycle Status is Production or […]

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Windows Agent Deployments Made Easy

As of late, I’ve had to do a few Windows OS Agent Deployments. As we all know, if you want to auto deploy to a Windows OS, you need to have CygWin installed (on each target host) first.The alternative, via Silent Install, is illustrated by my good friend Bobby Curtis here. However, for large scale […]

An Alternative to Oracle Enterprise Managers GoldenGate Plugin

If you’ve arrived at this page then, most likely you’re a victim of the JAgent 🙂 Not to be confused with Agent J. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been burned by it when using it for OEM monitoring. The symptoms, if you care to read, include: Hanging Extract and Pumps BDB datastore […]

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c: Unable to Login using SYSMAN after unsuccessful Upgrade

After an incomplete attempt to upgrade OEM 12.1.0.2.0 to 12.1.0.3.0, a few days later I received a call from my client that the sysman password is not working. Interesting.

Fun with DB 12cR1 Upgrade

It’s 5 AM and its pouring outside – couldn’t be a worse start to a July 4th holiday in the summer! I woke up (for some reason) and can’t fall back asleep and figured I might try my luck at a database upgrade with 12.1.0.1 🙂 Many of us have already posted blogs about their […]

Window’ed Incident Management in OEM 12c

A customer had recently ask me; “How can I configure an incident in OEM which only checks for a specific ‘metric’ during a certain period, for example, between 1 AM to 5 AM?” I thought, thats a good question 🙂The only solution I could think of was something similar to maintenance windows with Scheduler Jobs.
