OEM Grid Control 11g(11.1.0.1.0) Installation

Written By Srikrishna Murthy Annam on Monday, May 16, 2011 | 8:06 PM

This article explains the OEM grid control 11g ( 11.1.0.1.0 ) installation on Linux 5.4 (32-bit) OS with 11gR2 database.

Software Requirements:


SUN JDK 1.6_18 ( for 32/64 bit Linux OS) : Download
WebLogic Server 10.3.2(32bit) : Download
Oracle Database 11gR2 : Download
OEM 11g Grid Control( 11.1.0.1.0 ) : Download

Grid Control 11g uses WebLogic Server instead of OC4J which was traditional with Grid Control versions 10.1 and 10.2. Grid Control 11g will deploy from an existing Weblogic Server during the Grid Control Installation. Weblogic server installation requires a JDK 1.6_18 as a pre requisite. A database for repository use must exist at the time of Grid Control 11.1.0.1.0 installation. The option to "Install Grid Control with a new database" is no longer offered. So we need to have  the database created before starting the grid control 11g installation. Please review the Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control Certification Checker @ 412431.1 for the database version.

So the sequence of steps to install 11g grid control including all the external components are ..
1) Create Linux Machine
2) Prepare the linux machine for OEM grid control 11g installation.
3) Install JDK 1.6_18
4) Install Weblogic server 10.3.2
5) Install database 11.2.0.1
6) Prepare the database for OEM 11g Installation.
7) Install OEM grid control 11.1.0.1.0
8 ) Status Check
9) Issues and Resolutions


1.Create Linux Machine:


If you are planning to install OEM grid control in a vmware linux machine, Please follow the article VMware Server - Linux installation  and complete the linux machine creation. You can omit this point if you are directly provided with linux machine with OS linux 5.4(32-bit).

2.Prepare the linux machine for OEM grid control 11g installation:


Prepare the linux machine ( Linux 5.4 ) for the OEM grid control 11g installation. Please use the article Prepare Linux virtual machine for 11gR2 installation on Linux 5.x. Though this is to prepare the linux machine for 11gR2 database, it hold good for OEM 11g installation also. You can also refer the installation document here.

Check the following RPMs and make sure all the RPMs are installed.

3.Install JDK 1.6_18:


Installing JDK depends on the OS bit version you are using. If you are using 32-bit version OS, you will find weblogic server bundled with JDK. But if you are using 64-bit OS,you must install an appropriate jdk to support the WebLogic Server and Grid Control 11.1.0.1.0 installations on 64bit platforms, since the required jdk is not bundles with the installer as it is with the 32bit platforms.
In this demo, i am using a 32-bit OS and i can skip this part of installing JDK. For those we need to install JDK 1.6_18 for 64-bit OS, Please follow the detailed procedure explained with screen shots here. For more details, Please follow the MOS ID : 1063587.1.

NOTE: jdk 1.6.0_18 is recommended due to potential problems with newer versions.

jdk 1.6.0 updates 19 and higher do not allow subsequent patching with required WLS patch WDJ7, so these versions are not effective and must be avoided. They may be used when a cacerts file that allows Smartupdate can be appropriately substituted for the native one.

4.Installing Weblogic Server 10.3.2:


The only version of the WebLogic Server that can be used to deploy Grid Control is 10.3.2.The WebLogic Server associated with Oracle products such as SOA Suite or Identity Management is not appropriate for use in deploying Grid Control.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2EJfoC0aS8&hl=en&fs=1]

After completing the installation, we need to apply the recommended patches to WLS for grid control installation. Either use SmartUpdate tool or use offline method to install patch. Download the WLS patch WDJ7 manually and place it in the directory WLS_ORACLE_HOME/utils/bsu/cache_dir.

Offline Method:

[sourcecode language="bash"]

Apply the patch by running the following command:-
./bsu.sh -prod_dir=WLS_ORACLE_HOME/wlserver_10.3 -patchlist=patch number -verbose -install
For example:
./bsu.sh -prod_dir=/scratch/gc/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver_10.3 -patchlist=WDJ7 -verbose -install

You can view the report of applied patched by running the following command:-
./bsu.sh -report -patch_id_mask=patch number
For example: ./bsu.sh -report -patch_id_mask=WDJ7

[/sourcecode]

Using SmartUpdateTool(please watch the demo)

Watch this demo which shows how to apply the recommended patches to weblogic server.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejnKK6BpzNs&hl=en&fs=1]

A step-by-step description with graphical representation of the installer progress is available here.

5.Install Database 11.2.0.1:


The option to "Install Grid Control with a new database" is no longer offered. So we need to have  the database created before starting the grid control 11g installation.

Please follow the article "Installing 11gR2 Single Instance Database With Non-ASM Storage" for installling 11g database software and creating a database for OEM grid control repository.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePitGvp_zDs&hl=en&fs=1]

This procedure with step-by-step screen shot graphics can be found here.  ( This guide installs 11.1.0.7 Database, but we are installing 11gR2 in our demo ).

7.Install OEM grid control 11.1.0.1.0:


There are three ways to install Enterprise Manager.
1) Installing Enterprise Manager System with graphical mode including all configuration tools
2) Installing Enterprise Manager Software Only in Graphical Mode and Configuring Later
3) Installing Enterprise Manager Software Only in Silent Mode and Configuring Later

In the present demo i am choosing option 2 to install Enterprise Manager.

Go to the directory where the software is unzipped and start the installation with the following command ...

[sourcecode language="bash"]
<Software_Location>/runInstaller -noconfig
[/sourcecode]

After successful installation of the OEM grid control 11g software, install the configuration tools using

[sourcecode language="bash"]
$<OMS_ORACLE_HOME>/perl/bin/perl <ORACLE_HOME>/sysman/install/ConfigureGC.pl
Ex : /u01/app/OEM11g/Middleware/oms11g/perl/bin/perl /u01/app/OEM11g/Middleware/oms11g/sysman/install/ConfigureGC.pl
[/sourcecode]

Watch the video to install OEM grid control 11g software.

Then re-run the configuration tool script.
/u01/app/OEM11g/Middleware/oms11g/perl/bin/perl /u01/app/OEM11g/Middleware/oms11g/sysman/install/ConfigureGC.pl
[/sourcecode]

Hi Krishna,

Nice to see another good post from you.

I've a question for you. I am about to install OEM11g along with AMP/ACMP. And the requirement is for end users to access the console with limited access.

I've a registered HTTPS URL which can be used for this purpose. Now at which point during the install/config do I configure this URL?

Can I change the URL once I install OEM with the default hostname value to the registered HTTPS URL?

Regards
Sree Harsha

I mean to ask,

I would like to change the EM console URL from
https://hostname:port/em/console
to
https://https.registered.url:port/em/console

is it simply acheived by installing the OEM by having the URL as the first alias for the server IP in the "/etc/hosts" file?

Hope I am clear.

Regards
Sree harsha

Hi Harsha,
You can change the access URL at any point after installation. It is not mandatory that we need to stick to the initial URL with which we installed grid.

Thanks

Hi Sri,

Thanks for your reply. Do you have any idea how to change the URL after install?

Hi SreeHarsha, if i understood your question correctly on restricting the access and changing access URL, let me give you these steps ...

I) When the OMS is installed, the URL will be
https://hostname.domainname:/em
We can also use
http://hostname.domainname:/em
But to restrict the http access, we can issue the following command:
/bin>./emctl secure lock -console
This will allow only HTTPS console access

II) If you want to change the hostname in the URL, then only way is
1. have a virtual IP associated with virtual hostname
2. Secure the OMS as follows:
./emctl secure oms -sysman_pwd -reg_pwd -host
-secure_port
Note: if you do this, all the agents also must be secured with the OMS virtual hostname.
This will allow to access the console with the virtualhostname instead of physical hostname of the OMS.


III) If we want to restrict the access based on the IP address or if you want to allow the users only from a certain domain, we can do it by editing the configuration file httpd_em.conf

Thanks
SRI

Hi Sue Meyer, Unfortunately i dont have any article for 11g, but have for 10g. You can refer MOS IDs 1067438.1 and 1091325.1 for oem 11g grid control installation on windows.

Hi Lokesh,
You have the option that you can manually drop the repository incase if we are not able to figure out the exact issue. Use following commands,
1) drop user sysman cascade;
2) drop user sysman_mds cascade;
3) drop user mgmt_view cascade;
4) drop role mgmt_user;
5) Use the following query to spool and drop all objects.
select 'drop ' || owner || ' synonym ' || synonym_name || '; from dba_synonyms where table_owner in ('SYSMAN','SYSMAN_MDS','MGMT_VIEW');

Then re-run the installation. You should be fine now.

Thanks
SRI
