GoldenGate 12.1.2.0 MBeansContainerImpl – Runtime exception starting jAgent Server

During the EM 12.1.0.3.0 configuration to monitor GoldenGate, I stepped through the documentation (as I have numerous times in the past) but this time I kept getting the error message in the jagent.log. 2014-02-12 00:58:54 [main] INFO JAgentWSMain – About to call initialize on the WebService2014-02-12 00:58:54 [main] INFO JAgentWSMain – Loading agent-spring-ws.xml ############### 2014-02-12 […]

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 […]

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. To be specific, the job in question could have been setup via crontab or windows jobs but since I had recommended consolidation of newer jobs in EM12c, this was a good question. The […]

A Useful Metric Extension in EM12c for Unsupported Oracle Database Versions

Metric Extensions (ME) in EM12c are the new User Defined Metrics from EM11g. It’s an awesome extension of EM12c to monitor non-standard metrics. For example, EM12c’s Oracle Database Plugin 12.1.0.4.0 and 12.1.0.5.0 are only supported with the following versions of the database: I wrote a post on an Alternative Method to monitor GoldenGate from EM12c […]

Patch and Provision with EM12c: #4 Software Library – Create a Component From Oracle Home Clone

To continue with the previous series, I want to illustrate another useful feature with the Patching & Provisioning functionality within EM12c. Using the provisioning functionality, one can create software components which contain compressed installation binaries. This feature is not limited to only Oracle software, but to illustrate an example, I’d like to show you how […]

Adding Entities (Component) to the Software Library in Oracle Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.3.0

As part of a blog series I’m currently working on for Provisioning and Patching in OEM12c, I needed to create a Software Library Component for the DB12c installation media. With 12.1.0.3, oracle introduced an dmcli approach (create_swlib_entity) to creating the relevant components. I’ll explore the GUI method for now, and write a related blog for […]

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 […]
