This section explains the issues that you might encounter when installing, or upgrading to, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c Release 2 and the possible workarounds available.
In an environment using Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center version 18.104.22.168.0, no later upgrades are visible in the Ops Center Downloads wizard, preventing the download of upgrades through the user interface. You can still download upgrades outside of the user interface and apply them from the command line.
You can fix this issue by applying an IDR to your environment before upgrading. See
MOS Note 1908726.1 for this procedure.
The issue is encountered in Java 6u71 which is included in Oracle Solaris 11.1 SRU 15.4 and higher. It causes various problems with the Proxy Controller and might corrupt the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center configuration. This version of Java must not be used with the Proxy Controller. The issue is fixed in Java 6U75, which is included in Oracle Solaris 22.214.171.124, and in build 32 or later of Java 6U71, which is included in Oracle Solaris 126.96.36.199.
To find the version of Java 6 installed on the system, use the following command:
# /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.6.0/bin/java -version
The following output displays the version 71, which has the bug.
java version "1.6.0_71" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_71-b12) Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 20.71-b01, mixed mode)
If the Proxy Controller is started with Java 6u71, the following error is written to the cacao log file in /var/cacao/instances/scn-proxy/logs/cacao.
SEVERE: thr#11:"cacao-starter" Java version 1.6.0_71 is not supported due to bug https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8030956
Note:(Applies to Oracle Solaris 11 only) Operating system updates also update the Java environment. Always check the Java version after you update the operating system. To downgrade the Java environment to an older version, see <Sun Alert>.
This workaround is only specific to Oracle Solaris 188.8.131.52.0 or later.
Use a version of Java 6 that does not have the specified issue, for example, a version older than Java 6u71 or newer than Java 6u74. Java 6u71 Build 32 also includes a fix for the issue.
If you want the operating system of a Proxy Controller host to be upgraded to a version that includes Java 6u71, disable the Proxy Controller before applying the upgrade and rebooting to prevent the Proxy Controller from starting automatically when the system reboots.
Perform the following steps to downgrade Java:
Stop the Proxy Controller if it is running.
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/proxyadm stop -w
/opt/sun/xvmoc/bin/proxyadm stop -w
Unlock the Java 6 incorporation from the system constraints.
pkg change-facet facet.version-lock.consolidation/ub_javavm-6/ub_javavm-6-incorporation=false
Downgrade the packages using the pkg update command.
If the developer/java/jdk-6 is not installed:
pkg update \ email@example.com \ firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-0.175.1.12.0.5.0 \ email@example.com,5.11-0.175.1.12.0.5.0 \ firstname.lastname@example.org
If the developer/java/jdk-6 is installed:
pkg update \ email@example.com \ firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-0.175.1.12.0.5.0 \ email@example.com,5.11-0.175.1.12.0.5.0 \ firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-0.175.1.12.0.5.0 \ email@example.com
This issue exists in Java 7u51 which is included in Oracle Solaris 184.108.40.206 and higher. You might encounter this issue on OVM for SPARC guests if the
cpu-arch is different than native. The result is that the Enterprise Controller, Proxy Controller, and Agent Controller do not work with Java 7u51 on OVM for SPARC guests. This issue is fixed in Java 7u55, which is included in Oracle Solaris 220.127.116.11.
To find the version of Java 7 installed on the system, use the following command:
# /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.7.0/bin/java -version
This workaround does not apply for Oracle Solaris 10 or lower and Linux.
If using Oracle Solaris 11.1, use a lower version than SRU 15.4.
Use an earlier version of Java, such as Java 7u45 or install an older or fixed version of Java 7 using the procedure described at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-admin/sol-howto-update-only-java-1948328.html.
Do not upgrade an existing Oracle Solaris 11.1 system running Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to Oracle Solaris 18.104.22.168 or higher that is running in an Oracle VM Server for SPARC logical domain without native CPU-type, unless it contains a version of Java with a fix for this issue.
If a system with Oracle VM Server for SPARC logical domains and the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center agent is upgraded to use Java 7u51, then change the agent's Java configuration.
Perform the following steps:
Stop the agent.
Change the java-flags to include the option
cacaoadm set-param `cacaoadm get-param java-flags -i scn-agent | sed 's/=/=-XX:-UseCBCond /'` -i scn-agent
Start the agent.
Probe-based IPMP groups configured during OS provisioning do not operate after a reboot in the following cases:
Provisioning Oracle Solaris 10 on a control domain fails with a timeout after the task that reboots the operating system.
An Oracle Solaris 10 logical domain or OS asset is provisioned and operates successfully until a reboot.
This condition is caused by the way the IPMP group was created; the network interfaces were not configured to be available by default and are not restored after the reboot.
Re-define the network interfaces to run after a reboot. To ensure new probe-based IPMP groups are configured properly, use version 4.29 or later of the OCDoctor utility to update the script that creates IPMP groups.
If you have already created probe-based IPMP groups, edit the network interfaces in the IPMP group of the Oracle Solaris 10 OS asset.
Perform the following steps:
Log in to the Oracle Solaris 10 OS.
/etc/hostname.vnetID file and edit it.
Locate the definition of the hostname:
192.168.223.201 netmask + broadcast + group ipmp1 addif 192.168.223.203 deprecated -failover netmask + broadcast + up
Edit the definition to add the
up keyword to the position after the IPMP group name. For example:
192.168.223.201 netmask + broadcast + group ipmp1 up addif 192.168.223.203 deprecated -failover netmask + broadcast + up
Repeat the same steps for the other network interfaces in the IPMP group,
Save and close.
For the OVM for SPARC Control Domain, deploy the agent on the control domain's operating system using the Add Asset action.
You will not be able to move the storage of a non-global zone if the SUNWocmu package is installed on a global zone. Likewise, if this package is installed on a global zone where you try to migrate or recover your non-global zone, the job fails in the ZoneAttach task with the following message:
These packages installed on this system were not installed on the source system:
Delete the SUNWocmu package from:
The global zone that is hosting the non-global zone if you try to move its storage
The global zone where the non-global zone will be migrated before starting a migration.
Any global zone in the server pool if the non-global zone is used for automatic recovery.
If a move storage, migration, or automatic recovery job fails with the previous message before applying this workaround, then perform the following:
Delete the SUNWocmu package from the global zones.
Reattach the SUNWocmu package to the global zone that is hosting the non-global zone.
zoneadm -z <zone name> attach
Using the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center User Interface, refresh the package on the global zone that is hosting it.
When you try to stop the OS Provisioning job while the Monitor OS Installation task is running, the job takes long time to stop.
If the OSP and OSC target IP address are the same, it takes up to a maximum of 2 hours
If the OSP and OSC target IP address are different, it takes up to a maximum of 10 minutes.
Invoke the stop job on the subsequent Verify Agent Install task.
Note:This issue is fixed in version 22.214.171.124.0.
When the same network is associated with two Proxy Controllers, the OS configuration task of an OS provisioning job fails when all tasks are not targeted to the same Proxy Controller.
Temporarily disable the boot network for one of the proxy controllers, so that no jobs targeted at that network will use that Proxy Controller.
Perform the following to disable the network:
In the Navigation pane, click Administration.
Select the Proxy Controller.
In the Actions pane, click Enable/Disable Networks and disable the boot network.
Re-enable the network once the job starts to make the network available for discovery and for inter-Proxy Controller asset migration.
The system runs out of memory sometimes due to ZFS Adaptive Replacement Cache (ARC) and the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center's self monitoring times out and restarts the Enterprise Controller or Proxy Controller cacao instances.
Tune the ZFS ARC on the Oracle Solaris Enterprise Controller and Proxy Controllers to make sure enough memory is available for them to run reliably.
Set the ZFS maximum ARC value to no more than 1 GB if the system has less than 10 GB of physical memory, or 10 GB less than the system memory value if the system has more than 10 GB of physical memory.
To set the ZFS max ARC value, edit the
/etc/system file and add the following line:
Reboot the system after making this change.
When you have a guest with multiple network connections, you cannot detach all connections in a single job. When you run a job to remove multiple networks, the first connection is removed and the job fails with an error message that indicates Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center cannot detach the network because it cannot find a vNIC with the MAC address.
Run a separate job for each network to remove it from the guest. For example, when you have two networks attached to a guest, create a job to remove the first network from the guest and then start a new job to remove the second network.
The OS profiles based on JET templates have a subtype of JET-template instead of the required subtype of Logical Domain. As a result, these OS profiles cannot be used to provision a logical domain.
Only failure of remote Proxy Controllers triggers a failover of assets to a standby Proxy Controller. Because the Enterprise Controller's Operating System is running, it does not treat loss of the co-located Proxy Controller as a fatal error requiring recovery.
Changes to the configuration of logical domains are not permitted when the Logical Domain Manager is in Delayed Configuration state. Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center does not check for this state and allows operations to be attempted, resulting in failure.
See Logical Domains Administration Guide for more information.
When you use a local database for the Enterprise Controller, an SMF service,
svc:/application/scn/db:remote, is configured on the Oracle Solaris operating system. This service is automatically enabled if a remote database is configured. When you try to manually enable the service, it causes conflicting SMF service state transitions, requiring a reboot.
The format of database tables used by historical data service is improved in this release to save space in the database. The upgrade process converts the database to the new format automatically. However, if the report service tables are very large, a warning message is displayed on the command and in the
/var/opt/sun/xvm/update-saved-state/update_EC_minor_bundle_12.2.0.<build number>/updatelog.txt file. If you get the warning, you must update the database manually.
Perform the following steps to manually migrate the Report Service Data:
Start the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center CLI and connect to the Enterprise Controller.
/opt/SUNWoccli/bin/oc xvmSh > connect
Use the report service CLI.
localhost > reports
List the existing partitions.
localhost/reports > list
localhost/reports > list Daily partition 20140122 (with 0/0/0/0/0 values) state is : 1 Daily partition 20140204 (with 1200/0/0/0/0 values) state is : 0 Daily partition 20140205 (with 605/0/0/0/0 values) state is : 0 Daily partition 20140206 (with 6205/0/0/0/0 values) state is : 0 Daily partition 20140207 (with 0/0/0/0/0 values) state is : 0 Older samples (outside partitions) : 0/16416/1368/684/684
Run the check command to display the partitions that have to be converted.
localhost/reports > check
localhost/reports > check @ Partition 20140122 : no conversion is needed @ Partition 20140204 : a conversion is needed for 1200 old samples @ Partition 20140205 : no conversion is needed @ Partition 20140206 : no conversion is needed @ Partition 20140207 : no conversion is needed
For each partition that requires a conversion, run the following command:
localhost/reports > convert -p <partition name>
localhost/reports > convert -p 20140204 This operation may take time : please be patient and wait... Conversion of old samples : starting ... 1200 old format samples converted for partition 20140204 in table rm_resource_daily_trend in 261 ms 0 old format samples converted for partition 20140204 in table rm_resource_1hour_trend in 11 ms 0 old format samples converted for partition 20140204 in table rm_resource_12hour_trend in 3 ms 0 old format samples converted for partition 20140204 in table rm_resource_24hour_trend in 1 ms 0 old format samples converted for partition 20140204 in table rm_resource_24hour_stats in 1 ms Old format sample conversion for partition 20140204 : done in 318 ms with 1200 samples : perf = 0 samples / seconds
Verify that all the partitions have been converted.

Exit the CLI.
localhost/reports > exit
The Report Service Data is now migrated.
Note:This issue is fixed in version 126.96.36.199.0.
Provisioning job for Oracle Solaris 11 on Oracle SPARC T5-series, Oracle SPARC M5, and Oracle SPARC M6 servers, fails at the Reset to Factory Default task if the system is powered on with the operating system running. In addition, some Oracle Solaris 10 ISC/DHCP operating system provisioning jobs fail at the Netboot step with no further workaround. A bug in the firmware versions 9.1.1 and 9.1.1.a on all Oracle SPARC T5-series, Oracle SPARC M5, and Oracle SPARC M6 servers causes this issue.
Upgrade or downgrade the firmware to avoid using version 9.1.1. If you encounter the error, rerun the job or manually power off the system.
When a Logical Domain reboots after some of its guests have been automatically recovered to another system, some of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center information about guests running on the system might be lost, thus missing from the user interface. This issue is encountered in Oracle Solaris 11 only.
Automatic recovery of an LDom guest results in loss of information, such as the current name and associations with other assets. This issue is encountered only on systems running older versions of Oracle Solaris. The issue is resolved in Oracle Solaris 11.1.16.
File a service request to recover this data.
When you upgrade large environments to version 188.8.131.52.0, too many Auto Service Request (ASR) jobs might be created.
Perform the following steps before beginning the upgrade:
Click Administration in the Navigation pane, then select the Enterprise Controller.
Click Disable ASR in the Actions pane.
Upgrade your environment.
Click Administration in the Navigation pane, then select the Enterprise Controller.
In the Actions pane, click Enable ASR.
The installation does not check for the required packages such as
zlib.i686 on Oracle Linux.
zlib.i686 RPM before or after the installation.
After upgrading to version 184.108.40.206.0, OS provisioning fails with an error message indicating that DHCP is not initialized. This issue is encountered only on Oracle Solaris 11 Proxy Controllers.
Disable DHCP on the networks and re-enable them. In some cases, the Configure DHCP button is disabled because the DHCP configuration is marked as in use in the database. Run the following commands on the Enterprise Controller host and then re-run the OS Provisioning job.
SQL>delete from as_dhcp_config;
When reusing an existing Oracle Solaris 11 Package Repository source during configuration of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, the Oracle Solaris 11 source repository step fails.
In the Storage Libraries section, when you click Initialize Oracle Solaris 11 Software Update Library and enter the URL, an error message is displayed and the job fails.
Perform the following steps:
In the user interface, delete the current Oracle Solaris 11 Library.
On the system command line, create a new library directory for the existing Oracle Solaris 11 Library contents.
Go to the existing library directory, then change to the Ops Center-created directory named for your UUID.
<Library>/<UUID>/data/publisher files to the new library directory.
On the user interface, click Initialize Oracle Solaris 11 Software Update Library.Enter the URL of the new library location.
After upgrading to version 220.127.116.11.0, some hardware component names differ from those seen in a new installation. Also, some PCI devices are not displayed in the upgraded Enterprise Controller.
Delete the access point, then rediscover the ILOM.
Perform the following:
In the Navigation pane, under All Assets, select the asset.
In the center pane, click the Configuration tab.
Click the Delete Access Point icon in the Access Points section.
Re-discover the ILom of each hardware asset.
In the Enterprise Controller configuration wizard, provide a source repository for the Oracle Solaris 11 Package Repository during initial configuration. Otherwise, when you click Next, the wizard page for providing the source repository details hangs and the libraries are left in the following condition:
The Oracle Solaris 11 Software library is not configured.
The Linux/Oracle Solaris 8-10 Software Update Library is not fully configured.
Perform the following:
Reload the browser.
Log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Complete the library configuration using the Libraries section of the user interface.
After upgrading the Enterprise Controller, Proxy Controllers, and Agent Controllers, some non-global zones are not displayed as upgraded.
Retry the Agent Controller upgrade on the non-global zone.
Restart the Agent Controller on the non-global zone. Change to the directory (/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin) containing the
After upgrading to the latest version, server pool assets are not visible and thus cannot be selected when a combined Logical domain + OS provisioning plan is chosen.
A workaround is to edit the deployment plan:
Select the deployment plan.
Click Edit Deployment Plan in the actions pane.
Click Save without making any changes.
The Server Pools are now shown when applying the deployment plan.
On a SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 (Multirack), the "Number of Networks" field allows alphanumeric characters during the Edit Attribute action and does not throw any error upon clicking Save.
The change is reflected in the Details tab after clicking the Save icon.
Also, no Edit Attribute job is initiated.
After installing the Enterprise Controller, a new network created and configured on the OS level outside of Ops Center does not appear in the user interface. The OS Refresh action and Network Refresh action do not show the new network. Only an automatic refresh, with a long time interval, causes the network to appear.
Restart the Enterprise Controller.
When Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is deployed in a remote Proxy Controller configuration, the mod info of the Proxy Controller caches data. The IPS clients use this as a reverse proxy for the IPS data, but the
catalog.attrs file is dynamic and can change, and therefore should not be cached.
It is unlikely that users will encounter this issue since the cache times out.
Add your publishers to the following file:
CacheDisable and add your publisher by adding a line using the following format:
CacheDisable /IPS/<publisher name>/catalog
Stop and restart the Proxy Controller using the following commands:
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/proxyadm stop -w;
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/proxyadm start -w;
The Server Pool options allow you to create instances when all members have no connectivity to the private resources, such as instances with a private network that is not connected to any PC.
On Oracle Supercluster systems, you should not create Server Pools using members from 2 or more Supercluster systems (racks) and attach private (internal) networks to such systems. You can create a Server Pool using members from 2 or more Supercluster systems and attach public-only networks. It is safe to attach a private network to a Server Pool if the Server Pool consists of members belonging to the same Supercluster system (rack).
If you are using Ethernet, you should only attach private networks to Server Pools only if you are sure that all members physically have access to these private networks. Otherwise, the Server Pool will have the issues described above.
The Enterprise Controller, Proxy Controller, or Agent fails to start after an upgrade of the Common agent container (Cacao) on Solaris 10 (SUNWcacaort) or S11.1 (library/cacao) and the corresponding SMF service does not exist or is not online.
You can check the SMF services by running the following command:
svcs -l svc:/application/management/common-agent-container-1
The Enterprise Controller, Proxy Controller, and Agent SMF service names are:
Stop the Enterprise Controller and co-located Proxy Controller using the ecadm and proxyadm commands.
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/ecadm stop -w
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/proxyadm stop -w
Verify that no Cacao process is running.
ps -ef|grep cacao_launcher
Run: 'cacaoadm prepare-uninstall' to clean up any SMF services and mark cacao as not configured.
Restart Ops Center or resume installing Ops Center.
Discover a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance and Configure Storage Libraries How-To, the "
Create an Account for Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center" procedure creates an account on the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance for the use of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. If this account is used to discover the appliance, the discovery will fail as the account does not have the correct permissions.
Edit the Basic Administrator to add the required permissions.
In the storage appliance user interface, click Configure, then click Users.
Click Edit Entry for the Basic Administrator role.
From the Scope drop-down list, select Workflow and then select the modify and read check boxes.
Click Add, then click Apply.
From an Enterprise Controller installed on Oracle Linux 6.4, terminal opening fails through the UI to all Oracle Solaris 10 and 11 Agents. The following error is shown:
"Error - Connection reset"
SSH connection to the target servers is working.
Remove the following file on the Enterprise Controller:
Restart the Enterprise Controller.
/opt/sun/xvmoc/bin/ecadm stop -w
/opt/sun/xvmoc/bin/ecadm start -w
To prevent Agent configuration problems, the amount of memory used by Virtualization Agent Controllers has been increased to 1024 MB of memory in version 18.104.22.168.0.
When trying to migrate a branded zone the Ops Center UI does not have a value for "Address Allocation Method" in the "Specify Network Interfaces" screen.
Deselect the network in the migration wizard.
Add the network again.
If a zone has an opaque storage that is not of LOFS type (for example, a filesystem added in zonecfg with type "zfs") Ops Center will check if the user provides a script under "/var/opt/sun/oc/public/guest-operations" to manage these opaque filesystems.
This check is correct in the job itself when using it but in the migration wizard it's targeted on the satellite and not on the global zone. As a result the migration wizard will return : "Guest is not in migratable state (72078)".
Create the following empty file on the Enterprise Controller:
Agents installed on Supercluster's servers are not uninstalled/unregistered from the PC when "Remove Super Cluster" action triggered. After Supercluster removal these assets are not present in the All Assets tree due to limitation that assets tagged with Engineered system are visible only under the related Engineered system tree.
Go to Servers view, choose the desired asset, and delete it.
OCCLI will crash on Oracle Solaris 11 Update 1 SRU 19.5 with JDK8 installed.
On a machine where both JDK 7 and JDK 8 are installed, the CLI uses JDK8 by default. Edit the
JAVA_HOME variable to force the use of JDK 7:
JAVA_HOME=<path to JDK7> /opt/SUNWoccli/bin/oc
This issue appears in an environment with two Oracle Solaris 10 global zones, which differ only by one patch which requires an update of a zone when migrated between them.
This patch is not installed on the target zone, so it must be backed out. However, the wizard does not present this, but reports that nothing is required which will result in a failed migration.
When using MPxIO in Oracle Solaris 11 with 1600 or more LUNs, Ops Center's
xvmluinfo utility suffers performance problems due to an Oracle Solaris issue.
When provisioning an IPMP group on a LDOM guest, the default route shows net0 as the interface for the default destination, when it should show ipmp1.
One workaround is to reboot the system.
Another workaround is to run the following commands to correct the route:
route -p delete default <default gateway> -ifp net0
route -p add default <default gateway> -ifp ipmp1
The Create Server Pool wizard hangs at the Associate Networks step if all networks (IPoIB-default, IPoIB-storage, eth-admin and external-mgmt) are selected.
Do not select the IB networks at the Associate Networks step and create the Server Pool without them, then attach the IB networks to the Server Pool.
In an environment with two Control Domains and a network attached to both CDOMs using the statically allocated IPs, attaching the network again using NICs that are not interconnected and with the default IP assignment fails with a contradictory error message:
- plumbing on cdom1 was reported as successful
- plumbing on cdom2 was reported as successful
- job failed complaining that one or more Virtualization Hosts are not properly plumbed on given network.
The CDOMs are left in an intermediate state - a new VNIC is created, but no IP is assigned.
Rerun the job, but provide IP addresses instead of using system assigned IP addresses.
If you have already encountered this issue, use the following procedure to clean up before rerunning the job:
Log in to the CDOM.
Remove the IP:
ipadm delete-ip <wrong_vnic>
Remove the vnic:
dladm delete-vnic <wrong_vnic>
