L Installation and Configuration Log Files

This appendix lists the locations of the various log files that are created during the prerequisites check, installation, and configuration phases of Enterprise Manager Grid Control components.

In particular, this appendix covers the following:

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Installation Logs

This section describes the following log files that are created while installing Enterprise Manager Grid Control:

Installation Logs

The following are the installation logs, which provide complete information on the installation status:

  • oraInventory/logs/installActions<timestamp>.log

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/oui/installActions<timestamp>.log

    Note:

    The installActions log file is located in the oraInventory directory by default. This log file will be copied on to the above-mentioned Oracle home location after the installation is complete.

Configuration Logs

This section describes the following configuration logs:

General Configuration Logs

The Oracle Management Service (OMS) configuration logs are located in the following location of the Oracle home of the OMS.

<ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/omsca

Table L-1 lists the configuration logs for different installation types.

Table L-1 General Configuration Logs

Installation Type Location

Install a new Enterprise Manager system

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/cfgfw/cfmlogs

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/cfgfw/oracle.sysman.top.oms.<timestamp>.log

Note: <ORACLE_HOME> refers to the Oracle home of the OMS.

Add an additional Management Service

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/cfgfw/omsca/omsca<timestamp.log>

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/cfgfw/oracle.sysman.top.oms.<timestamp>.log

Note: <ORACLE_HOME> refers to the Oracle home of the OMS.

Install Oracle Management Agent

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtools/cfgfw/cfmlogs

  • <ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtools/cfgfw/oracle.sysman.top.agent.<timestamp>.log

Note: <ORACLE_HOME> refers to the Oracle home of the Management Agent.


Repository Configuration Logs

This section describes the following repository configuration logs:

SYSMAN Schema Operation Logs

The SYSMAN schema operation logs are available in the following location of the Oracle home of the OMS. Listed in this directory is an overall log file, emschema.log, which logs all the actions performed by all the instances of RepManager run.

$<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/schemananager/

In this location, for each run of RepManager, a new subdirectory is created based on the time at which the RepManager was run.

For example, if the RepManager was run and an instance was created at 09/29/2007 12:50PM, then the following subdirectory is created.

$<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/schemananager/m_092907_1250_PM/

An instance of RepManager ( or equivalently RepManager) can have multiple schema actions, mainly CREATE, DROP, UPGRADE, TRANSX, and RESUME_RETRY. For each action, a subdirectory is created.

For example, if a CREATE action is performed by a RepManager instance at 09/29/2006 12:51PM, then the following subdirectory is created. Listed under this subdirectory are RCU-related log files and emschema.log.CREATE log file that logs the CREATE action-specific messages.

$<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/schemananager/m_092907_1250_PM/m_092907_1251PM.CREATE/

In general, in $<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/schemananager/m_<time-stamp>/m_<time-stamp>.<schema-action>, the following files are created:

  • RCU per component (i.e. init, common, modify, drop, config, outofbox, preupgrade log

  • RCU log

  • Schema action-specific RCU logs

  • TransX action-specific log (emrep_config.log)

If the any of the schema operations (CREATE/UPGRADE/PREUPGRADE/DROP) fail in SQL execution, and if you retry the operation by clicking Retry, then a separate subdirectory titled m_<time-stamp>.RESUME_RETRY is created.

The following shows the overall directory structure of repository operation logs for different schema actions:

MDS Schema Operation Logs

MDS Schema Creation Log

For MDS schema creation operation, the following log is available in the Oracle home of the OMS:

$<ORACLE_HOME>/cfgtoollogs/cfgfw/emmdscreate_<timestamp>.log

For more information, review the following logs from the Oracle home of the OMS:

$<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/schemamanager/m_<timestamp>/m_<timestamp>.CREATE/mds.log

For MDS schema drop operation, the following logs are available in the location you specified by using the -logDir argument while invoking the MDS schema drop command:

$<user_specified_location>/mds.log

$<user_specified_location>/emmdsdrop_<timestamp>.log

However, if you did not specify any custom location while invoking the MDS schema drop command, then the logs are created in the Oracle home of the OMS. For example, /scratch/OracleHomes/oms11g/mds.log and /scratch/OracleHomes/oms11g/emmdsdrop_<timestamp>.log.

Secure Logs

For OMS, the following secure log is available in the OMS Instance Base location. Here, <oms_name>, for example, can be EMGC_OMS1.

For Management Agents, the following secure log is available in the Oracle home of the Management Agent.

<ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/log/secure.log

Oracle Management Service Logs

The following log files that provide information about the running OMS are available in the OMS Instance Base location. Here, <oms_name>, for example, can be EMGC_OMS1.
