Review these topics for how to discover Oracle Database Appliance and other supported targets through Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide for more information about discovering and promoting targets.
Before you begin the discovery process, verify that the prerequisites are completed to ensure a smooth discovery.
Ensure that the following prerequisites are completed on your appliance:
Install agents on Oracle Database Appliance.
On bare-metal deployments, the agent must be deployed on each node.
On virtualized platform deployments, the agent must be deployed on each node in ODA_BASE.
Deploy the Oracle Database Appliance plug-in on the agents.
If you are using Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform, then you can deploy the Oracle Virtualized Infrastructure Plug-In to monitor running virtual machines and view the Hypervisor statistics.
Ensure that the server node host names in each individual Oracle Database Appliance have a unique name within the enterprise.
Use this procedure to add hardware components as managed targets for Oracle Enterprise Manager.
The Oracle Database Appliance discovery process enables you to add the hardware components (such as compute node ILOM) in the Oracle Database Appliance as managed targets for Oracle Enterprise Manager. The server nodes should already be added as host targets. You add these host targets as members of the Oracle Database Appliance system target after the discovery process.
Oracle Enterprise Manager displays the Oracle Database Appliance Discovery page.
Agent URL: Click the Browse icon and select an Oracle Database Appliance agent from the list. Click Select.
Credential: Select New and configure the root credentials for Oracle Database Appliance Discovery. Check the Save As box to give this credential a name for future use.
The Discovered Targets page opens and shows detail about the system.
The Add Tag button is located at the bottom of the page under the list of available tags.
Creating an Oracle Database Appliance Group for more information about creating tags.
If you have deployed Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform, then complete this procedure to discover the Hypervisor and Virtual Servers.
In the Monitoring Agent field, click the search icon (magnifying glass) to search and select the default monitoring agent for monitoring targets. The default agent is typically the agent that is deployed in the
ODA_BASE domain on Node 0. Click Select.
(Optional) Enter a failover monitoring agent. The failover monitoring agent is the standby monitoring agent for monitoring targets, which typically is the
ODA_BASE agent on Node 1.
Enter the user name and password for the Oracle Database Appliance
In the Hostname and IP Address section of the page, click Add.
In the Discover Virtual Servers dialog, enter the
Dom0 node names. Specify a long host name (fully qualified domain name, or FQDN), or specify an IP address. To enter multiple entries, enter each new host name, IP address or IP address range in a new line.
After the job completes, it may take a few minutes for the targets to become visible under the Oracle Database Appliance target.

To add targets to be monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager, you must first specify the host on which those targets reside.
The host targets and the corresponding Oracle High Availability Service targets are added as members of the cluster during the discovery process.
Use this procedure to discover Oracle Grid Infrastructure targets.
Oracle Clusterware and High Availability Services require that you add the targets using this Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control procedure.
Use this procedure to add Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) databases as targets.
You can add databases, listeners, and Automated Storage Managers (ASM) as monitored targets. A monitored target is an entity that you want to monitor and administer using Oracle Enterprise Manager. Oracle Enterprise Manager will search for targets of these types on the host or cluster that you specify.
