Partner Note: Set Up Exadata for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12

Posted by Jeremy Schneider on Jan 9, 2013 at www.pythian.com

I recently helped setup an Exadata X2-8 Database Machine with the latest version of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control ( A few documents do exist for this process – the most useful of which are the Exadata Discovery Cookbook and the Setup Automation Kit. However I found a few inconsistencies and problems; I think the existing documents I found were written on older versions of Enterprise Manager and older versions of the tools. Also there are some additional steps for older Exadatas which didn’t apply to my case.

I’m publishing my final procedure here with hopes that it helps you, but as always please cross-reference this with the appropriate documentation before doing anything in your own environment.

At this customer’s request we also configured SNMP to integrate alerting with another system – in their case, Exadata-related alerts will be raised in BMC Event Manager. I’ve also included the steps I followed to enable this; it should be easy enough to tweak my procedure here for any SNMP-compatible monitoring system.
