Unauthenticated Registrations Addendum
This document is intended to be used in conjunction with e-mails received by Oracle Configuration Manager users advising them of unauthenticated Oracle Configuration Manager instances.
To identify and reconfigure the Oracle Configuration Manager installations currently in unauthenticated mode, the following options are available to you:
For installations that only have one Oracle Configuration Manager that needs to be converted, use the
configCCR command as explained in One Oracle Configuration Manager in Need of Conversion.
For installations that have more than one Oracle Configuration Manager in need of conversion, use the Mass Deployment Utility as explained in Multiple Oracle Configuration Managers in Need of Conversion.
If there is no product information, this means that Oracle found no inventory for your configuration. Note that Oracle provides the installation date and method, if available. If this is the case, determine where the installation was performed based on the date and method and then perform the steps for the appropriate number of configurations.
When converting only one Oracle Configuration Manager from unauthenticated mode to registered mode, use the command line interface and the
configCCR command. This command enables you to modify the registration credentials after Oracle Configuration Manager has been installed.
Perform the following steps:
Before starting, ensure you have execute privileges for OCM_INSTALL_ROOT owner. OCM_INSTALL_ROOT represents the parent directory where the Oracle Configuration Manager code is installed.
Log in to the machine where the Product, specified in the Product column in the e-mail, has been installed.
Change directory to the OCM_INSTALL_ROOT/ccr/bin directory.
If the Oracle Configuration Manager is configured with a config home, then that config home should be set as an environment variable before running
You are prompted for the My Oracle Support User Name, which is an e-mail address, and password.
You will be prompted for the proxy server information, if it is required for connection to Oracle.
The following text provides examples of the
This example demonstrates the use of the
configCCR command without the use of parameters.
OCM_INSTALL_ROOT/ccr/bin/configCCR Provide your email address to be informed of security issues, install and initiate Oracle Configuration Manager. Easier for you if you use your My Oracle Support Email address/User Name. Visit http://www.oracle.com/support/policies.html for details. Email address/User Name: email@example.com Provide your My Oracle Support password to receive security updates via your My Oracle Support account. Password (optional): ** Validating configuration changes with Oracle Configuration Manager server(s) **
firstname.lastname@example.org represents the My Oracle Support User Name.
The user is prompted for the My Oracle Support Password which is not echoed.
This example demonstrates the use of the
configCCR command where a proxy server is required. The proxy server being used requires authentication.
OCM_INSTALL_ROOT/ccr/bin/configCCR Provide your email address to be informed of security issues, install and initiate Oracle Configuration Manager. Easier for you if you use your My Oracle Support Email address/User Name. Visit http://www.oracle.com/support/policies.html for details. Email address/User Name: email@example.com Provide your My Oracle Support password to receive security updates via your My Oracle Support account. Password (optional): Unable to establish a network connection to Oracle. If your systems require a proxy server for outbound Internet connections, enter the proxy server details in this format: [<proxy-user>@]<proxy-host>[:<proxy-port>] If you want to remain uninformed of critical security issues in your configuration, enter NONE Proxy specification: ccr@jdoe-sun:8083 Proxy Password: Proxy information verified, validating specified email value(s). ** Validating configuration changes with Oracle Configuration Manager server(s) **
ccr@jdoe-sun:8083 represents the proxy server information where: ccr is the proxy user, jdoe-sun is the proxy server, and 8083 is the proxy port.
firstname.lastname@example.org represents the My Oracle Support User Name. At the prompt, you enter the My Oracle Support Password. The password is not echoed.
When converting multiple Oracle Configuration Managers from unauthenticated mode to registered mode, Oracle recommends the use of the Oracle Configuration Manager Mass Deployment Utility. The Mass Deployment Utility is part of the Oracle Configuration Manager Companion Distribution kit, which can be downloaded from the Collectors tab on My Oracle Support.
Note:The following instructions refer to the Mass Deployment Utility version 10.0.1 or higher. If you are using a version of Mass Deployment prior to version 10.0.1, upgrade to the latest version of the Mass Deployment Utility.
Perform the following steps:
Download the Companion Distribution kit
Copy the ocm_companion-10.0.1.0.0.zip file to the location where you want to install the Companion Distribution kit.
Unzip the file as follows:
unzip -d <full_path> ocm_companion-10.0.1.0.0.zip
where <full_path> represents the full path where you want to install the Companion Distribution kit.
unzip -d /scratch/location/install ocm_companion-10.0.1.0.0.zip
As a result, the Mass Deployment Utility kit (ocm_massdeployment-10.0.1.0.0.zip) will be placed in the ocm_companion/distribution destination directory. For example,
ocm_companion/distributions ocm_massdeployment-10.0.1.0.0.zip (Mass Deployment Utility kit)
ocm_massdeployment-10.0.1.0.0 zip file to the location where you want to install the Mass Deployment Utility.
Install the Mass Deployment Utility
ocm_massdeployment-10.0.1.0.0.zip file. This installs the Mass Deployment Utility in
unzip -d <full_path> ocm_massdeployment-10.0.1.0.0.zip
Determine Oracle Homes that are in unauthenticated mode
In the Mass Deployment input csv file, enter the information for your Oracle Home locations. These locations can be identified from the Oracle Configuration Manager details listed in the e-mail.
To identify which of your Oracle Homes have the unauthenticated Oracle Configuration Managers, use the Mass Deployment action
get_info. For example, the csv file would contain the following:
In the output file, check the value of the OCM Mode field for any homes with the value of "Connected (unauthenticated)". For example, the csv file would contain the following:
,mycompany.com,jsmith,ENCR_075ACDEB39C61A874BA0F6FD4B93BF52,/home/jsmith/db10g,,10.3.1.0.0,idle,Connected (unauthenticated),,,email@example.com,,,,,,,,,,Success: get_info operation
Reconfigure unauthenticated Oracle Configuration Managers
To convert unauthenticated Oracle Configuration Managers to authenticated ones, use the Mass Deployment action
config. For example, the csv file would contain the following:
In the output file, check the value of the OCM Mode field for homes with the value of "Connected". This indicates the reconfiguration has been successful. For example, the csv file would contain the following:
,mycompany.com,jsmith,ENCR_075ACDEB39C61A874BA0F6FD4B93BF52,/home/jsmith/db10g,,10.3.1.0.0,idle,Connected,,,firstname.lastname@example.org,ENCR_8EBB07D9D486C17A4BA0F6FD4B93BF52,,,,,,,,,Success: config operation
See the Oracle Configuration Manager Companion Distribution Guide for more details on using the Mass Deployment Utility.
