Using Oracle Configuration Manager

In this Oracle Solaris release, during an interactive installation, you will be prompted to configure the Oracle Configuration Manager and the Oracle Auto Service Request utilities for your installed system if those services are going to be installed on your system.

Note - All Data is transmitted in secure mode.

When performing an interactive installation, you have the following options.

Unless Oracle Configuration Manager is in disconnected mode, during the first reboot, an Oracle Configuration Manager service runs and attempts to register the system with the registration server. If this registration succeeds, an upload of the 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.

Regardless of whether you chose to allow the registration, you can still choose to register or re-register your system later with the Oracle Configuration Manager in order to facilitate future support.

You may choose to register or re-register in situations such as the following:

You can register or re-register by using the configCCR utility (/usr/sbin/configCCR) in interactive mode. For example, run the following command to remove existing configuration specifications:

# /usr/lib/ocm/ccr/bin/configCCR -r

Then, run the following command to manually configure Oracle Configuration Manager:

# /usr/lib/ocm/ccr/bin/configCCR -a

After completing registration, you can enable the service as follows:

# svcadm enable system/ocm

Once the service is enabled, the Oracle Configuration Manager client will be restarted when the system is rebooted.
