Cloud Control 13c Release 2 (13cR2) : It’s Alive!

o-enterprisemgr-13c-clr-2769481I delayed our upgrade from Cloud Control 13cR1 to 13cR2 until I finished all my travelling. It’s not really fair to make a major change then swan off round the world. 🙂

Yesterday was the day. I got in and started the upgrade, following the process I documented here and it worked. 🙂

ItsAlive

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I had tested it all at home anyway.

We now have Cloud Control 13cR2 monitoring all out Dev and (more...)

Associating Oracle Database 12c Databases with Compliance Standards

In my last post, I walked you through the first part of installing the Oracle Database 12c STIG compliance standards sample code. The next step to using these compliance standards is to associate your Oracle Database 12c databases with these standards. You may recall there are two separate standards in the sample code, one for multitenant databases and the other for conventional architecture databases. The process of associating the databases is the same in (more...)

Installing the Oracle Database 12c STIG Compliance Standard Sample Code

In a recent post, I announced the release of some sample code that created two new compliance standards for DISA’s Oracle Database 12c Security Technical Implementation Guide. The sample code includes details on how to install the compliance standards, but I wanted to walk you through an example of installing it with screenshots and more commentary than is in the sample code. So let’s start off with some of the assumptions you need to (more...)

EM13c Release 2 is here!

It’s been a long time coming, but finally we can announce than Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 2 is here! So what are the main new features? Obviously I can’t cover them all in a single blog post, but here are the ones that are highlights to me.

Support for Transport Layer Security 1.2

For our security minded customers, this is functionality that people have been waiting a long time for. Communication between (more...)

Oracle Database 12c STIG Compliance Standard sample code is here!

One of the most requested features in the compliance management area has been a compliance standard for Oracle Database 12c. As most of you would know, Oracle Database 12c has been out for quite some time, and indeed Larry Ellison has just announced at OOW2016 availability of Oracle Database 12cR2 in Oracle’s public cloud offering. However, as I discussed in another post earlier this year, creating a new STIG compliance standard is not a simple (more...)

Read Only Users and Database Performance

One of the questions we see being asked reasonably frequently is how to allow read only access to someone who wants to view database performance issues, using tools such as Real Time ADDM, ASH Analytics and so on. This is generally asked for someone like an application developer, who can use this information to identify performance issues in Production and then fix the root cause in their Development environments.

Well, that’s a reasonable question to (more...)

Some Exciting Customer Presentations!

While I always enjoy getting in front of customers to present on some new and really cool functionality in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, it’s even better to be in the audience listening to actual customers doing just that!  There are a couple of those presentations coming up on Thursday this week at OOW.  Unfortunately I can’t be there to listen in, but if you’re interested in learning how to provide scalable and flexible patching solutions, (more...)

Installing a 12.1.0.5 agent on a Linux 5.x platform from a 13.1 OMS

Is that enough version numbers for you? 🙂

The issue this post will address (very briefly because it’s the week before OOW2016 and life is crazy!) is this. If you are running a 13.1 version of the OMS, and you try to push a 12.1.0.5 agent to a Linux box that’s running some version of 5.x (such as RHEL5 or OL5), you will get an error message saying you are (more...)

It’s That Time Again! Time for OOW2016!

Yes, it’s that crazy time of the year again, when the city of San Francisco turns red – it’s Oracle Open World (OOW) 2016! If you’re planning on going this year, I hope you have your hotel room booked, because they disappear very, VERY quickly!

Every year just before OOW, the product teams produce what we call Focus On documents, that show you all the sessions (both customer and Oracle presented) around a particular area. (more...)

Converting Crontab to Enterprise Manager Jobs

A customer recently asked me about whether they can convert numerous cron jobs to EM’s Job System. It reminded me that a former manager of mine had posted an article on just how to do this conversion. That manager has since left Oracle, and since his posting was on his own website, I wanted to make sure the intellectual capital wasn’t lost to us if he decided to remove it. The article was written in (more...)

Enterprise Manager 13c And Database Backup Cloud Service

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.

Auto Search in the Enterprise Manager through bookmarks

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:

However, (more...)

Compliance and File Monitoring in EM12c

I was recently asked to help a customer set up File Monitoring in Enterprise Manager and I thought since I haven’t blogged in a while, this could be a good way to start back up again..
Enterprise manager 12c provides a very nice Compliance and File Monitoring Framwork. There are many Built in Frameworks include for PCI DSS and STIG but this How-to will only focus on a custom file monitoring framework.
