When Oracle Universal Installer is performing an Oracle RAC 10g release 2 installation on a cluster that has Oracle Database release 10.1.0.4, Oracle Universal Installer gives you an option of performing an upgrade on any databases running on the system.
If you select this option to upgrade, Oracle Universal Installer invokes Database Upgrade Assistant to perform the upgrade. As part of the database upgrade, Enterprise Manager Database Control is also upgraded. This does not impact the upgrade itself. The impact is that if the preupgrade version of the database is 10.1.0.4, Database Control may not start on one or more nodes after the upgrade. As a result, if you run the following command on that node:
emctl status dbconsole
it reports that Enterprise Manager Database Console is not running. Logging in through the browser also fails. This bug is intermittently observed.
Go to the node where the Enterprise Manager Database Console is not running.
emagent.exe process from the Task Manager.
This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 4550226.
During a delete instance operation on a cluster database using a shared Oracle home, you can encounter the following error message if the database has been configured for Enterprise Manager Database Control:
Error updating EM configuration for node node name
As a result, the Enterprise Manager configuration is not completely removed from the node where the deleted instance was running. However, this does not have any adverse effects. You can click OK, ignore the error, and proceed.
This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 4547265.
