Introduction to Oracle Configuration Manager

Oracle Configuration Manager is used to collect configuration information and upload it to the Oracle repository. Customer support representatives can use this information to provide better service. Some of the benefits of using Oracle Configuration Manager are as follows:

Oracle Configuration Manager can be run in two modes: connected or disconnected. The disconnected mode is needed only if your server does not have a connection to the Internet, and you cannot configure an Oracle Support Hub. In this mode, you can manually collect configuration information and upload the information to Oracle by way of a service request.

In the connected mode, Oracle Configuration Manager can be run in several network configurations as follows:

For more information about setting up and configuring Oracle Configuration Manager, see: Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide. The rest of this document focuses on the Oracle Solaris specific tasks that are associated with Oracle Configuration Manager.

Note - To configure Oracle Configuration Manager to use a proxy or an Oracle Support Hub, you must run the configCCR command in interactive mode. See Oracle Support Hub for more information.

During an Oracle Solaris 11 installation, the software attempts to set up an anonymous connection to the Oracle repository. If successful, this connection allows the installation process to proceed without prompting for any information. Ideally, you should change the registration or the network configuration after the server is fully installed. Data loaded anonymously is not tied to any organization. If the software could not connect to the Oracle repository, you can register manually, then enable the Oracle Configuration Manager service.
