Oracle Database Appliance Plug-In for Enterprise Manager

Tammy Bednar
Senior Director of Product Management

With the Oracle
Database Appliance plug-in, you can monitor Oracle Database Appliance targets
using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c. The plug-in provides
configuration and monitoring information about any Oracle Database Appliance
target running Appliance Manager or higher. Features include:

  • Monitoring of the
    Oracle Database Appliance as an Enterprise Manager target
  • Monitoring a dynamic
    group of Oracle Database Appliance systems using tags
  • Oracle Database Appliance components (DB,
    ILOM, HOST, Virtual Machines, Hypervisor, ASM, and Oracle Appliance Manager)
    are grouped and can be monitored under a target

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) Plug-In for Enterprise
Manager is now available. It can be
updated via the Self Update feature of Enterprise Manager, which updates
components whenever new or updated features become available. The ODA Plug-In
is now available via the Enterprise Manager Store, an external site that is
periodically checked by Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to obtain information
about updates ready for download.

The documentation can be found in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud
Control Documentation 12c Release 4 Plug-Ins library

Update your Enterprise Manager today and check out the ODA Plug-In!

    Hi, just wanna know where can we obtain the Oracle Database Appliance Plug-in OPAR file stated in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/doc.121/e58340/ch2_deployment.htm#CMEMP12022

    Hi Karl, Please take look at the EM Extensibility page here:


    Search on 'appliance' and you will see a link to the Oracle Database Appliance plugin.

    Also, if you have it setup in your EM deployment, I believe that Self-Update will also download it.

    For the page you proposed, the button 'Explore Plug-In' redirect me back to the current page


    and, the button 'Download Plug-In' redirect me to


    Both links are documentation, not a link to the file '12.1.0.VERSION.0_oracle.dba.odba_2000_0.opar'

    As stated in the Oracle Document, there are three steps to deploy Oracle Enterprise Manager Plug-in for Oracle Database Appliance assuming I have an existing Oracle Enterprise Manager installation, with Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent installed and the archive file is ready for the deployment.

    The archive file is named as 12.1.0.VERSION.0_oracle.dba.odba_2000_0.opar.

    Those steps is stated as

    1. Import the Oracle Database Appliance Plug-in Archive File Locally (steps) or Import the Oracle Database Appliance Plug-in Archive File Remotely (steps)

    2. Deploy Oracle Database Appliance Plug-in on Enterprise Manager Cloud Control (OMS Servers) (steps)

    3. Deploy Oracle Database Appliance Plug-in to the Management Agents on Both Oracle Database Appliance Server Nodes (Hosts) (steps)

    My question is where could I obtain the *opar file for the first step?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,

    I tried above provided link and followed the instruction but still not able to download it. Could you please check if that is working as expected? or does this plug-in has been pulled back ?

    We do not want to use self-update and there seems to be no way to download the opar file. The link you posted above takes us in circles. I find the page for the ODA plug in, yet clicking on "Download Plug In" just takes you to a doc page describing how to use self-update. That is a misleading button as is Oracle telling us we can get the opar file there. Please post a link for the ODA Plug In opar file.
