Table 11-1 lists the steps you need to perform to set up and use Enterprise Manager.

Table 11-1 Setting Up and Using Enterprise Manager

Step Task Description Procedure

Step 1

Verify Oracle Software Library Setup

Software Library is a repository that stores software entities such as software patches, virtual appliance images, reference gold images, application software, and their associated directive scripts.

Verify if you have already configured Oracle Software Library while installing Enterprise Manager. If you have not, then configure a new Software Library.

"Configuring Software Library Storage Location" section of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide

Step 2

Verify My Oracle Support Connectivity

My Oracle Support connectivity enables you to view Service Request information, obtain Patch Recommendations, and download Management Plug-ins and other entities to the Software Library.

Verify if you have connection to My Oracle Support.

  1. From the Setup menu, select My Oracle Support, then select Set Credentials.

  2. Enter the user name and password, click Apply.

Step 3

Download Oracle Management Agent Software

Management Agents help you monitor targets on hosts.

Download the Management Agent software for various operating systems supported by Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, to the Software Library using Self Update Console.

"Meeting Management Agent Software Prerequisites" section of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide

Step 4

Download and Deploy Management Plug-Ins

Management Plug-ins are components that "plug in" to Cloud Control to provide various features and functionality.

Download and deploy the latest versions of the Management Plug-ins you need.

"Downloading Plug-ins" section, "Deploying Plug-ins to Oracle Management Service" section, and "Deploying Plug-ins on Oracle Management Agent" section of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide

Step 5

Discover Targets

Discover and select the targets you want Enterprise Manager to monitor and manage. Enterprise Manager can scan your infrastructure for potential targets, or you can manually add your own.

"Step 1: Discovering Unmanaged Hosts Using IP Scan" section of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide.

"Step 4: Promoting Targets" section of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide.

Step 6

Configure E-Mail Notifications

Notifications keep you informed when specific incidents, events, or problems arise.

Configure the SMTP gateway to enable e-mail notifications to be sent for events and incidents.

"Using Notifications" chapter of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide

Step 7

Create Administrator Roles

A role is a collection of Enterprise Manager resource privileges, or target privileges, or both. Roles are assigned to administrator accounts, so that the access to Enterprise Manager is controlled.

Create roles and assign appropriate privileges for your organization.

Step 8

Create Administrator Accounts

An administrator is an authorized user who logs in and uses Enterprise Manager.

Create administrator accounts and assign roles to them so that the access to Enterprise Manager is controlled.
