13 Configuring Enterprise Manager to Manage Oracle Calendar Targets

This chapter describes how to configure Enterprise Manager to monitor the Oracle Calendar component for Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 1 and Release 2.


Note:

See Chapter 3, "Configuring Calendar" for information on configuring Grid Control to manage Oracle Calendar components for Oracle Collaboration Suite 10g Release 1.

This chapter contains the following sections:

13.1 Preparing to Configure Enterprise Manager to Manage Oracle Calendar Targets

Calendar is installed as a set of services distributed over hosts and databases.

For more information, see Oracle Calendar Administrator's Guide for Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 2 at:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/collab.html

As a result, you should create the following Enterprise Manager targets using the Grid Control Console:

13.2 Creating the Oracle Calendar Server Target

After installing the Oracle Calendar server, the following information needs to be identified:

To create the Oracle Calendar server target:

  1. Verify that the scripts required to configure Oracle Calendar for Enterprise Manager are located in the following directory:

    $ORACLE_HOME/ocal/oem/scripts
    
    

    These scripts are installed with Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 2. The scripts should include:

    ocal_ps.pl
    ocal_dbsize.pl
    
    
  2. Using the Grid Control Console, navigate to the home page for the Oracle Management Agent that was installed on the Oracle Calendar server host.

  3. In the Monitored Targets section of the page, select Calendar Server from the Add drop-down menu.

    Enterprise Manager displays the property page for the selected target type. Provide the required information, as described in Table 13-1.

  4. Click OK to create the target.

Table 13-1 Oracle Calendar Server Target Properties

Property Description

Calendar Server host:port

The Oracle Calendar server host and engine (unieng) listening port.

The port number is configured during installation and can be found under the [ENG] section in the follwoing file:

$ORACLE_HOME/ocal/misc/unison.ini

Sysop Password

The password of the Oracle Calendar instance administrator (Oracle Calendar SYSOP account) that was used to install the Calendar Server.

Note that the password for the SYSOP account is set to the ias_admin password by default.

To modify the SYSOP password after installation, run the following command:

$ORACLE_HOME/ocal/bin/unipasswd

Note that changing the iAS Admin password does not automatically change the SYSOP password. The SYSOP password may be different for each Calendar Server.

OracleHome

The Oracle Home for the middle tier that hosts the Oracle Calendar server.


13.3 Creating the Oracle Calendar Applications Target

After installing the Oracle Calendar application system, gather the following information, which will be required during the Calendar Applications target configuration:

To create the Calendar Applications target:

  1. Using the Grid Control Console, navigate to the home page for the Oracle Management Agent that was installed on the Oracle Calendar application system host.

  2. In the Monitored Targets section of the page, select Calendar Applications from the Add drop-down menu.

    Enterprise Manager displays the property page for the selected target type. Provide the required information, as described in Table 13-2.

  3. Click OK to create the target.

Table 13-2 Calendar Applications Target Properties

Property Description

OracleHome

The Oracle Home for the middle tier that hosts the Oracle Calendar application system

Calendar HTTP Hostname

The name of the host for the HTTP Server where the Oracle Calendar application system will be hosted.

Calendar HTTP Port

The HTTP Server port where the Oracle Calendar application system is hosted. The port number is usually the same as the HTTP Server port for OracleAS Portal.


13.4 Creating the Oracle Calendar Web Application Target

To monitor your Calendar components, you create a Web Application target. Web Application targets can be monitored for availability and performance with Application Performance Management transactions. You can also measure the response time of pages in your Web Applications using End-User Page Performance Monitoring.

Before you configure the Calendar Web Application target, Oracle recommends that you create a test account so you can test the target immediately after it is created.

To create a Web Application target for monitoring your Calendar components:

  1. Create a TEST Calendar account that you can later use to test the Web Application target.

  2. Using the Grid Control Console, navigate to the Agent home page for the Oracle Management Agent that was installed on the Calendar host.

  3. In the Monitored Targets section of the page, select Web Application from the Add drop-down menu.

    Enterprise Manager displays the Create Web Application wizard, which guides you through the process of creating the Web Application.

    When the wizard asks you for the Homepage URL, enter the Calendar URL. For example:

    http://calhost1.acme.com:7777/ocas-bin/ocas.fcgi?sub=web&web=calendar
    
    

    Click Help for information about other fields in the Web Application target wizard.

  4. Click OK to create the target.

  5. Use the instructions in the online help to create some representative transactions to measure the availability and performance of the Web Application you just created.

    For example, create a transaction from the TEST account that logs in and schedules a new appointment or views an existing appointment.

  6. Enable End-User Performance Monitoring for the Web Application using the procedures described in "Configuring Application Performance Management" in Oracle Enterprise Manager Advanced Configuration for Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 1 at:

    http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/oem.html


    Note:

    Before you enable End-User Page Performance Monitoring to monitor your Oracle Collaboration Suite Web Application target, you must apply Patch #3040716 to the Oracle Application Server middle-tier instance.

13.5 Creating the Oracle Calendar Group Target

After you configure the Oracle Calendar targets, you can create the Oracle Calendar group target. To ensure the group is created correctly, it is important to ensure that every possible calendar target has been created. Also, ensure that the host targets and application server targets used by Oracle Calendar are discovered and visible in the Grid Control Console.

To create the group target:

  1. Click the Targets tab in the Grid Control Console.

  2. Click All Targets.

  3. Select Collaboration Suite Component from the Add drop-down menu and click Go.

    Enterprise Manager displays the Create Collaboration Suite Component page.

  4. Enter a name for the Calendar group in the Name field.

    For example, enter Calendar Group.

  5. Select Calendar from the Component Type drop-down menu.

  6. Select the targets that you want to add to the group from the Available Targets list and add them to the Selected Targets list.

    Be sure to add the following targets to the Calendar group:

    • The host where the Calendar Server resides

    • The Calendar Server target you created in Section 13.2.

    • The Calendar Applications target you created in Section 13.3

    • The Web Application target you created in Section 13.4

  7. Click OK to create the group target.
