Oracle Grid Control 10.2.0.5

Postby chandu » Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:00 pm

Hi Tim,

We are migrating Oracle Grid Control (10.2.0.5) from a Sun Sparc platform to a RHEL platform. What is the best way to do ??

(1) Do a clean/fresh install of 10.2.0.5 (base install and patch to 10.2.0.5) on RHEL from scratch OR
(2) do we need to actually migrate everything including OEM db repository from the one existing one on Sparc to the new RHEL

Thanks,
Sharath

Hi.

Question: Why are you not moving to Cloud Control 12cR2?

It's much better and now would seem the perfect opportunity. Start with a clean installation and move your services across gradually.

Thanks Tim for the update,

Coming to the Cloud Control 12cR2. Do we need to have a 11g database in place and use the existing 11g database for the cloud control installation. There isn't any option where it creates a new database during the Cloud Control 12cR2 installation (we could either use the existing DB or create a new DB during the 10G Grid Control installation)

Hi.

Unlike previous grid control installations, Cloud Control separates out the database software installation, so you have to do that installation first, then install Cloud Control against it. The process is shown here:

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/12c ... -and-6.php

That in itself should not stop you from considering Cloud Control. I assume if you are comfortable installing things like Grid Control and Cloud Control, the thought of installing a database is not a problem. :)

Just because it is a separate installation step, does not affect the licensing of the product. You can still install it (DB and Cloud Control) for free, provided you are using it to manage fully licensed Oracle databases. As long as you don't use any features in CC that you have not paid for in your managed databases, you are not breaking any license agreements. Also, the DB and WebLogic installations can only be used for CC. You can't have any of your own apps hosted by them. This is essentially unchanged since the 10.2.0.5 situation.

I see little point in holding back from 12cR2. There are no technical reasons to do so. There are not licensing reasons to do so. It's actually easier to install than 10.2.0.5. :)

Cheers

Tim,

I have the new Oracle Cloud Control 12 C (12.1.0.2) setup on LINUX platform.
I am trying to upgrade the Oracle Management agents (version 10.2.0.5 to 12.1.0.2) on each of the other hosts where the databases reside to communicate with the new Cloud Control 12 C.
Can you please advice me the path/steps to follow for the upgrade of the management agents from 10.2.0.5 to 12.1.0.2
I don't see the perfect documentation for this upgrade (or) probably I am bit confused with the few documents i see online..

Please advise

Thanks for the same ..

Chand

Hi.

First, uninstall the existing agents. Then install the new agent.

You can see how to install the new host here:

Tim,

Thanks for the update.
So there is no way to upgrade the existing 10.2.0.5 agent to 12 C ??
The only way is to uninstall the existing and install the new 12.1.0.2 agent ????

Thanks

Hi.

I've found agent upgrades between all versions to very very unreliable. :-)

Re: Oracle Grid Control 10.2.0.5

Hi Tim,

I am able to schedule various oracle jobs through the new Cloud Control (12C - 12.1.0.2) and all the jobs run successfully at the scheduled times. Now, the issue I am coming across is no notifications/emails coming across from the Cloud Control (12C - 12.1.0.2). When I test the email server @ (Enterprise Manager Password & Email) I do receive test emails from the cloud control. But still i do not receive any critical email alerts like (file system full, flash_recovery_area full, archivelog full). I used to receive all such emails/alerts in the previous Grid Control 10G. I tried referring few documents on the new 12 C Cloud Control but did not find the accurate result. Can you please help me with this

Thanks

Hi.

1) make sure the SMTP server is registered in the "Setup > Notifications > Notification Methods" screen.

2) Check the "Setup > Incidents > Incident Rules" screen. Make sure the relevant incident rules are enabled.

3) You also need your email setup in "Enterprise Manager Password & Email" screen, from the menu below your username on the top right of the screen.

If these three things are correct, these notifications should work.

Cheers

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the update and I went through all the 3 steps you pointed towards but still we don't receive and emails/notifications from the cloud control.
For instance: I can see the alerts when logged into the cloud control when the database is down but don't see the alert email being sent from the cloud control with regards to the database down. Please advice

thanks,
