For information on the specific Oracle server releases supported by Oracle Enterprise Manager and its components, see the Oracle Enterprise Manager Installation CD-ROM insert.
Sorting Oracle Enterprise Manager Messages
This manual discusses specific messages for the Oracle Enterprise Manager Console, its common services, and integrated applications. This manual also covers messages for the optional system management packs.
In this manual, messages are sorted in alphabetical order by message prefix, and each chapter covers messages of one or more types of prefixes. The prefix of a message indicates the Oracle Enterprise Manager facility that generated the message. The following table lists these facilities:
Other Oracle Message Prefixes
There are other Oracle messages that you may encounter when using Oracle Enterprise Manager. When you see prefixes that are not listed in this manual, check the specific manuals that discuss messages with those prefixes, as follows:
- The prefix "TNS" means that the error message is generated by an Oracle network product. These errors are documented in the Oracle9i Database Error Messages manual.
- The prefix "NMC" indicates that an error message is generated by the Oracle Network Manager. The prefix "NMO" indicates error messages generated by the network object layer of the Network Manager. The prefix "NMR" is for messages generated from the ROS file level of the Network Manager. These errors are documented in the Oracle9i Database Error Messages manual.
- The prefix "NNO" precedes error messages generated by a Names server. The prefix "NNC" is for error messages generated by an Oracle Names client and for error messages common to both server and client. The prefix "NNL" is for error messages generated by the Oracle Names Control utility. These errors are documented in the Oracle9i Database Error Messages manual.
- The "NMP" prefix is for error messages generated by the Network Management Protocol, the part of the Names server that handles SNMP queries. The "NPL" prefix precedes error messages generated by the Network Presentation Layer component of the Names server. Network Management Protocol and Network Presentation Layer error messages are typically not visible to the user. These errors are documented in the Oracle9i Database Error Messages manual.
- The prefix "ORA" is the generic prefix returned by all Oracle applications. These errors are documented in the Oracle9i Database Error Messages manual.

1 = Program not usable - critical impact on operations.
2 = Program usable. Operations severely restricted.
3 = Program usable with limited functions - not critical to overall operations.
