This chapter describes the different ways in which Oracle Configuration Manager can be deployed.
Oracle Configuration Manager can be deployed into every
<ocm_install_root> that must be monitored. In a large enterprise, this may require hundreds or thousands of installations. To facilitate ease of deployment, the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file should be present in a central location. The different options that can be used to deploy Oracle Configuration Manager are as follows:
The Oracle Configuration Mass Deployment Utility provides a mechanism by which you can distribute Oracle Configuration Manager to any Oracle home where the Oracle Configuration Manager is not installed, or installed but not configured.
The Mass Deployment utility also updates existing homes where Oracle Configuration Manager installations are out of date, reconfigures existing installations, and instruments the database located in that Oracle home.
For the complete description of the Mass Deployment utility, refer to the Oracle Configuration Manager Companion Distribution Guide.
The Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file can be made available through a network file system (NFS). Once the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file is available on each host, it can be unzipped into the required
<ocm_install_root> directory and the
setupCCR.sh script can be executed.
On UNIX based systems, issue the following command to protect the unzipped files:
Then execute the unzip command as follows:
% unzip -d <ocm_install_root> /nfsdisk/ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip OR % unzip -d <ocm_install_root> /net/hostname/directory/ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip
The name of the platform-specific distribution file for Oracle Configuration Manager is
OS_NAME refers to the name of the operating system such as Linux, AIX, Windows and <
CHIP_ARCH> refers to the base architecture such as
x86, and so on.
Oracle Configuration Manager can also be deployed from a central trusted host.
The system administrator can create an installation script to unzip the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file and invoke the installation script. (In the following example,
ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip is the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file and
sh is the name of the administrator created installation script.)
Both the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file and the installation script are copied to the remote system and the installation script is executed. For a truly secure environment, the scp command appears as follows. Note: This command prompts for a password:
% scp ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip \ <user>@<hostname>:ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip % ssh <user>@<hostname> installscript.sh -s where <user> is a remote username on the host denoted by <hostname>
sh script contains the following commands:
On UNIX based systems, the umask command protects the unzipped files:
Then the unzip command follows:
> unzip -d <ocm_install_root> ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip > <ocm_install_root>/ccr/bin/setupCCR -s <CSI> <MyOracleSupportUserName>
Copy the Oracle Configuration Manager distribution file (
ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip) to the
<ocm_install_root>/sysman/agent_download/ccr/<OS> directory (where OS is the operating system).
You can also deploy Oracle Configuration Manager by using the built-in Enterprise Manager functions that allows it to run on monitored hosts. To use this method, the following must be true:
You can then create an OS script that will copy, unzip, and set up Oracle Configuration Manager on all the systems. For example:
#!/bin/sh cd <ocm_install_root>; wget http://oms_machinename:4889/agent_download/ccr/OS ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-<OS_NAME>-<CHIP_ARCH>.zip; umask 077 unzip -d . ccr-Production-10.3.8.0.0-Linux-x86.zip; /ccr/bin/setupCCR -s <CSI> <MyOracleSupportUserName>; exit
When you deploy Oracle Configuration Manager into a database home, you must run a database configuration script. Enter the following commands:
$setenv <ocm_install_root>; $setenv ORACLE_SID <oracle sid>; <ocm_install_root>/ccr/admin/scripts/installCCRSQL.sh collectconfig; <ocm_install_root>/ccr/bin/emCCR collect;
setenv command may not work in all UNIX shells. For Oracle E-Business databases, you must run installCCRSQL with the
ebs_collectconfig option. For details, refer to Section 3.9.2, "Instrumenting the Database for Configuration Collection".
