The following are required to install Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (188.8.131.52):
Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.5)
Note that this version of Oracle WebLogic Server is installed by default as part of the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c installation process.
A certified Oracle Database on which the Oracle Management Repository can be configured.
Supported database versions are listed in the Enterprise Manager Certification Matrix available on My Oracle Support. To access this matrix, follow these steps:
Log in to My Oracle Support, which is accessible at the following URL:
Click the Certifications tab.
In the Certification Search region, select Enterprise Manager Cloud Control from the Product list.
From the Release list, select 184.108.40.206.0, then click Search.
Expand the Databases node.
These instructions assume that you will install a complete Enterprise Manager Cloud Control system using an existing certified Oracle Database on which the Oracle Management Repository can be configured.
See the "Installing Enterprise Manager System" chapter in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Basic Installation Guide for installation and post-install configuration instructions:
You can install additional Oracle Management Service (OMS) instances into your existing Enterprise Manager Cloud Control environment.
Note that multiple OMS 220.127.116.11 instances cannot be installed on the same WebLogic Server host machine. Instead, each additional OMS instance must be installed on a different host. Ensure that the WebLogic Server location is the same on all OMS hosts.
See the "Adding An Additional Oracle Management Service" chapter in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Basic Installation Guide for prerequisites and instructions on installing additional OMS instances at the following URL:
You can install additional Management Agents into your environment. Several Management Agent deployment options are supported in this release.
For instructions on using the recommended Add Host Targets wizard method (also referred to as Agent push in previous EM releases), refer to "Installing Oracle Management Agent Using Agent Deployment Wizard" in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Basic Installation Guide.
This section covers issues related to installation of Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (18.104.22.168).
The Checking for Timezone prerequisite check generates a warning when installing Oracle Management Service or a Management Agent on a Solaris x64 or Solaris SPARC host.
To work around this issue, follow the steps below.
Ignore the timezone warning and continue with the Management Agent installation.
Stop the Management Agent with the following command:
<AGENT_HOME>/bin/emctl stop agent
On the Management Agent host, set the Timezone (TZ) environment variable.For example:
Reset the timezone on the Management Agent with the following command:
<AGENT_HOME>/bin/emctl resetTZ agent
Start the Management Agent with the following command:
<AGENT_HOME>/bin/emctl start agent
On Solaris x64 hosts, extra characters are displayed on the console when invoking runInstaller when the Solaris x64 host is configured to use the Japanese EUC (ja_JP.eucJP) or SJIS (ja_JP.PCK) locales.
To work around this issue, configure the Solaris x64 host to use the Japanese locale with the UTF-8 (ja_JP.UTF8) encoding.
Deployment of a Management Agent to a Solaris 11 target host that is configured to use the SJIS (ja_JP.PCK) locale fails during the Remote Prerequisite Check step. The error message will read "Segmentation Fault".
To resolve this issue, set the system level locale to Japanese using the UTF-8 (LANG=ja_JP.UTF8) or EUC (LANG=ja_JP.eucJP) encodings.
When attempting to install a Management Agent using the Add Host Wizard on a Solaris Exadata Cluster, the installation process either fails or remains in the "In Progress" state indefinitely. The reason is that the installation fails to detect a free port for use by the Management Agent. This situation occurs when:
The target host already has a Management Agent using port 3872;
The host is configured to listen on an Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address; and
Secure Shell (SSH) is configured to use to listen on an Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address
To avoid this issue, explicitly specify a free Management Agent port in the installation interview screens in the Add Host Wizard, rather than allowing the application to search for a free port.
You can upgrade your existing Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 5 (10.2.0.5.0), Enterprise Manager 11g Grid Control Release 1 (22.214.171.124.0) or Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 1 (126.96.36.199) (with or without Bundle Patch1) to Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (188.8.131.52).
If you have Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 4 (10.2.0.4.0) or lower installed, then you must first upgrade to Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 5 (10.2.0.5.0) or Enterprise Manager 11g Grid Control Release 1 (184.108.40.206.0) before you can upgrade to the new release. After upgrading or patching your current installation to the supported releases, upgrade to Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (220.127.116.11).
Before beginning, Oracle recommends that you back up the Oracle Home that will be upgraded, as well as the Oracle Inventory directory and the Software Library. You should also back up the Management Repository database, as upgrade changes made to the Repository cannot be rolled back. For details, see the "Backing Up Enterprise Manager" chapter in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide:
See the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Upgrade Guide for upgrade prerequisites and instructions. This document is available from the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Documentation Library at the following URL:
The upgrade process will upgrade only the Management Repository (
sysman) schema and will create the new Metadata Services (
sysman_mds) schema within the database. It will not impact any other data within the database. Even so, a database backup is strongly recommended.
This section covers issues related to upgrading to Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (18.104.22.168).
Upgrading a Management Agent from Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Release 1 (22.214.171.124) with Bundle Patch 1 applied fails with the following error, which indicates that the Oracle Exadata plug-in is not supported by the Management Agent:
Plug-in Oracle Exadata is not supported on this Management Agent. Please undeploy this plug-in to proceed further.
The error occurs even though the Oracle Exadata plug-in was not previously deployed to the Management Agent. It error occurs on AIX, Linux 32 and Windows x64 Management Agent hosts.
To resolve this issue, you must go through the process of undeploying the Oracle Exadata plug-in - even though it was not previously deployed - before attempting to upgrade the Management Agent.
From the Setup menu, select Extensibility, then select Plug-ins.
Select the Oracle Exadata plug-in row in the table.
Note that even though the count in the Management Agent column for the plug-in reads "0", the plug-in can be undeployed.
Select Undeploy From > Management Agent.
Once the plug-in has been undeployed, perform the Management Agent upgrade.
The 2-system upgrade option is not supported on a host with an existing Oracle Management Service instance. The reason is that such an upgrade would result in two Management Agents on the host:
The "old" Management Agent installed with the previous Grid Control release
The "new" Management Agent installed as part of the upgrade
This scenario could result in unexpected behaviors in different Enterprise Manager features, and is therefore not supported.
During upgrade of a Management Agent that monitors Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) targets, the pre-upgrade console may display errors for some metrics.
To resolve this issue:
Copy the SOA archives (JAR files) as part of the Management Agent upgrade, then restart the Management Agent. For example:
cp /net/adc2110399/scratch/ vaudinar /ps2soajars/*.jarPLUGIN_ROOT/archives/jlib/extjlib/
Note:If necessary, create the
extjlibdirectory under the
Restart the Management Agent.
If a logging message is enabled in the the Power Broker configuration file (
pb.conf), then the jobs submitted from the pre-upgrade console using the Power Broker option will fail.
To work around this issue, disable all of the logging information before submitting jobs from the pre-upgrade console using Power Broker.
The following section notes critical patches that must be applied to use specific product features after installing or upgrading to the latest release.
Before using the new Database as a Service (DBaaS) feature, you must download and apply the mandatory patch for bug number 13031985. This patch contains important bug fixes related to the user experience when using the Self Service Application for provisioning databases.
The patch can be downloaded from the Patches & Updates page on My Oracle Support, which is available at the following URL:
You can de-install existing Enterprise Manager Cloud Control components in either graphical or silent mode.
See "Deinstalling Enterprise Manager Cloud Control" in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Advanced Installation and Configuration Guide for de-installation instructions:
