Using Oracle Configuration Manager

Upon rebooting after an installation from a LiveCD or after a text installation, anonymous system configuration information is uploaded to Oracle Support by the Oracle Configuration Manager. My Oracle Support receives information about the installed system's configuration, but does not receive any of your customer information.

Specifically, during the first reboot, an Oracle Configuration Manager service runs for the first time and attempts to register the system with the registration server. If this registration succeeds, an upload of the anonymous configuration information is performed. Also, upon successful registration, an internal scheduler is started. Thereafter, configuration data is uploaded under control of the scheduler. On subsequent reboots, configuration data is not sent as part of service startup. The service recognizes that the system is already registered and simply launches the scheduler. Scheduling may be tuned by using /usr/sbin/emCCR. See the emCCR(1M) man page and the Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide.

When performing an installation from a LiveCD or a text installation, you have the following options.

Note - If you are using an install server for purposes such as creating an installation image and burning it to media or initiating a text installation over the network, you have different options for administering the Oracle Configuration Manager. See Chapter 14, Setting Up Oracle Configuration Manager For Use By AI Client Systems.

Whether you chose to allow or cancel the default anonymous registration, you can still choose to register or re-register your system later with the Oracle Configuration Manager.

You can register by using the configCCR utility (/usr/sbin/configCCR) in interactive mode. After completing registration, you can enable the service as follows:

# svcadm enable system/ocm
