2 Getting Started Managing Oracle Enterprise Scheduler

This chapter describes how to access Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control and Oracle Enterprise Scheduler configuration, monitoring, and management tasks.

This chapter includes the following topics:

2.1 Logging into Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console

You can administer Oracle Enterprise Scheduler by using the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. This section describes how to start and log in to the console.

To log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console:

  1. Use Internet Explorer 7, Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.2, or Firefox 3.0.x to access the following URL:

    http://host_name:port/em

    where host_name is the name of the host on which Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console is installed and port is a number that is dynamically set during installation. This port is typically 7001, but is the HTTP port associated with the Oracle HTTP Server. For environments in which the SSL port was enabled during configuration, the default port is 7002.

  2. Enter weblogic/password and click Login.

    where:

    • weblogic is the default administrator user name for Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. You can change this during installation. You can also add new administrator users using the WebLogic console.

    • password is the password you entered during installation.

    The Accessibility Preference dialog appears the first time you log in. If you want, you can select to not display this option again.

  3. Select an appropriate action and click Continue.

    The farm home page is displayed. From there, you can navigate to the Scheduling Service.
