After what seems like eons since we first started on it, I’m excited to announce a new book I co-authored is finally out. The book is called “Building Database Clouds in Oracle 12c” and is available on Amazon. Of course, it really isn’t that long ago that we started writing the book, but there’s been a lot happening between then and now!
The book was co-authored with Tariq Farooq and Sridhar Avantsa. Tariq asked me (more...)
Oracle Enterprise Manager 13C has been introduced as a ‘single pane of glass’. Managing and monitoring all the assets, in or out of the public cloud.
But when creating an RDS- database instance in Amazon’s cloud, it is monitored by Cloudwatch, and it’s not possible to install a so-called Oracle Hybrid Cloud Agent to connect directly to the Oracle Management Service of OEM13c. Luckily there’s a plugin to connect with Cloudwatch. This article will cover (more...)
*Customer names obfuscated to protect the innocent (and the guilty!)
This post covers a particular customer’s recovery scenario. They had reverted their config.xml to a previous version due to a failed attempt to integrate LDAP into WLS myrealm, and ever since, they have been unable to start BI Publisher via the emctl command. Although they can start it from the WLS Admin Console, the ’emctl status oms -details’ shows BI Publisher Server is (more...)
Since Oracle Enterprise Manager 12C it is possible to allocate the costs of IT resources to the people of organizations who consume them. This is done through the use of the plugin ‘Consolidation Planning and Chargeback’ .
Pete Sharman wrote an excellent blog about configuring this plugin in Enterprise Manager 12c, and it’s not my intention to copy his work, so I’d like to focus on complementary stuff regarding Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c.
In this article (more...)
This posting is to try to clarify what is supported when using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c (EM13c) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The question came from some of our sales consultants who were finding confusing information about what is actually supported when using EM13c and AWS, so I have asked our Support folks to write a support note to provide the definitive answer on this. While that is being written, I thought I would (more...)
Yesterday I wrote a post on the ORAchk / EXAchk plug-in in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c, and I promised I would write another post that would cover some of the more frequently asked questions we’ve been receiving on the plug-in. That’s what this post in, so the rest of the post will be in a Q&A sort of format.
Question: What are the benefits of EXAchk integration with the Enterprise Manager compliance framework i. (more...)
In Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c release 22.214.171.124, we released the Oracle Engineered System Healthchecks plug-in which processed the XML output from the EXAchk tool, included as part of Oracle Enterprise Manager system monitoring. The EXAchk tool provides functionality for system administrators to automate the assessment of Engineered Systems for known configuration problems and best practices.
Over the years since that first release, we increased the scope and functionality of the tool, (more...)
The Oracle Database Cloud Service allows for backup of an Oracle Database to the Oracle Cloud using Rman. Enterprise Manager 13c provides a very easy way to configure Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service. This post will walk you thru setup of the Oracle Database Backup Cloud service as well as running backups from EM.
There is a new menu Item to configure the Database Backup Cloud Service (DBCS) in the Backup & Recovery Drop down.
One thing I like seeing is how people use Enterprise Manager. It’s one of the most enjoyable parts of speaking at conferences (apart from the social networking, of course), because quite often the users of Enterprise Manager find ways of using the product that we in Product Management might never have thought of. Sometimes that can lead to useful product enhancements, and other times it leads to much head shaking in disbelief (but since I (more...)
As some of you would already know, for my sins I am the product manager with responsibility for BI Publisher in Enterprise Manager [I must have a lot of sins because I’m also responsible for Change Management, Compliance Management, Configuration Management (these three form the Database Lifecycle Management pack), jobs, the target discovery framework, and at least part of DBaaS along with data cloning and refresh )]. While I was investigating another issue from a (more...)

Since 12c when debugging or looking at flow instances in the Enterprise Manager, we have to use the search button to make the flow instances appear. By default the following text is being displayed: 'Conduct a search to display the list of message flows across SOA composites in the SOA Infrastructure'.
When you open the search bar on the right pane and click search, the instances of the last 24 hours are being displayed:
