Introduction


What is Server Manager?

Server Manager is Oracle's database administration tool. The graphical component of Server Manager (Server Manager/GUI) allows you to perform database administration tasks with the convenience of a graphical user interface (GUI). The line mode component of Server Manager (Server Manager/LineMode) provides a line mode interface.

Server Manager and Database Administration

Server Manager is designed to provide administrative functionality via an easy-to-use interface. You can use Server Manager to:

Portability

Server Manager is available for multiple GUI environments, yet adopts the native look and feel of the platform on which it is running. Server Manager running on Motif looks like a Motif application, and Server Manager running on Windows looks like a Windows application.

Supported Oracle Server Releases

You can use Server Manager to administer any database running Oracle7 release 7.0 or later. You can also simultaneously administer different databases running different releases of Oracle7.

Server Manager/LineMode

For those environments that do not support a graphical user interface, or for those times when a command line interface is desirable, Server Manager for Line Mode provides a conversational line mode. In line mode, you can explicitly execute commands on a command line.

You may want to use Server Manager in line mode when a graphical device is unavailable, such as when dialing-in from a non-GUI terminal, or when performing unattended operations, such as when running nightly batch jobs or batch scripts that do not require user intervention. For more information about using Server Manager in line mode, see "Using Server Manager in Line Mode" in the Oracle Server Manager User's Guide.
