Pardon my asking this. My OEM knowledge is fairly limited. I rarely use it.
From what I vaguely remember OEM 9i (and even earlier versions) came with a pre-configured web/http server. And I assume one could log in via the web to do some DBA tasks, correct? What's all the hype about 10g's new EM architecture? Why doesn't it suck as much?
PS: What's the jrew.jre killing being referenced here? Is that a 'hang' when you access OEM9i via the browser? Then you end up killing it on the client to clean up?
The Enterprise manager console is very different in Oracle 10g from its previous versions. ANd what I understand you cannot use it to monitor databases that are not of version 10g.
The product is much sleeker and has a lot more power than its previous versions but is not backward compatible. It is now called 'EM Database Console'. You must have the dbconsole process running to access EM Database Console from a client browser. This process is automatically started after you install 10g on your server.You can access the console by opening your Web browser and entering the following URL: http://hostnameortnumber/em
Hostname is the name or address of your computer.Portnumber is the EM Database Control HTTP port number that is specified during installation. The default port is 5500. You can find the value for your system in the '$ORACLE_HOME/install/portlist.ini' file.
well...I would prefer using the java OEM rather then the dbconsole as it is limited in some sense...i cant even create replication master group using that!!! no doubt it does provide u a good overview of ur DBs interms of uptime...sql tuning hints/cues...but i juz need a tool to that is able to access/compatible with other oracle version for quick admin accessibilities...
ok..i gotta try downloading 10g client CD...gosh..over my 56k link..arggghh
