    I am trying to set up the Oracle Enterprise Manager to be accessible with the web browser. Any one has any instructions or documents in simpler way as compared to the one available in OTN. Please add your input. I am running Oracle8i R816 database on Unix11. The OEM management server is on Win2000 and the database for the OEM Repository is again Oracle8i R816 on Win2000.

    I got this from Oracle support when I was having problems? It may help you or not???


    With the new version of Enterprise Manager 2.1, comes a scaled down version of
    the Application Server

    This is an automatically configured webserver which allows you to access the
    Console, DBA studio and SQL*Plus Worksheet via a web browser.

    Oracle provided this feature for customers who didn't have a webserver
    or had trouble configuring this, so now they will have an out-of-the-box
    preconfigured webserver and web listener.


    Everyone trying to access the Enterprise Console via a Web Browser

    EM Website Installation and Common Problems

    Select "Oracle Enterprise Manager Web Site" from the Universal Installer
    list of products to install from Oracle Server 2.1 Enterprise Edition or
    OEM Management Pack 2.1 CD-ROM.

    A few things to know :

    - It is only installable on Windows NT and Solaris.
    - It is installed as .jar files so JINITIATOR can cache them.
    - The automatic configuration of the Application Server Listener is using
    port 3339 and is not automatically started.

    How to start the web listener

    For Windows NT, go to the Windows NT Control Panel > Services and start the
    OracleAppServerListener service.

    For Solaris, start the web listener from the command line with the command :


    How do you know if it started up alright?

    Check following files locate in Oracle_Home\OWS\Admin\Website40\OEM :


    - Config file for OAS Listener; automatically configured at install time.


    - Records errors with OAS Listener Service (i.e., startup/shutdown problems).


    - Records process id when OAS Listener Services startup (Solaris only).


    - Maintains log of browser clients connecting to webserver and the files
    being downloaded by each client.

    For debugging OAS Listener problems, review SVOEM.ERR and SVNODE.LOG files.
