Using the OCDoctor through the UI

The OCDoctor utility is a tool that's bundled along with Ops Center, and which you can also download from java.net. It has a wide variety of functions - it can check a system to see if it meets Ops Center's installation prerequisites, troubleshoot and fix some common issues, check a system's connectivity, and update itself.

You can download the OCDoctor and run it on a system from the command line, but it's also possible to use the OCDoctor's troubleshooting functions on managed systems through the UI. To do this, you select the asset and click the Self Diagnosis action in the Actions pane:


This option launches a Self Diagnosis job, which uses the OCDoctor to check the system for known issues. Once the job is complete, you can click on Self Diagnosis again to see the results and, if issues are found, attempt to fix them using the OCDoctor.


Take a look at the OCDoctor chapter and the Self Diagnosis procedure for information about the OCDoctor's other features.

New OCDoctor released

There's a new version of the OCDoctor available - 4.26. It makes the connectivity check option a bit clearer, and checks for several new issues in troubleshooting.

You can get the new version at https://updates.oracle.com/OCDoctor/OCDoctor-latest.zip. If you have an Ops Center installation in connected mode, an automated job will get the new version for you.

Agent Controller requirements

I got a question about the requirements for Agent Controller installation:

"The Certified Systems doc talks about the supported operating systems for Agents, but it doesn't say if specific packages or patches are required. Where can I find out if my OSes can support an agent?"

We figured that a tool to check a system for Agent compatibility would be easier to use than a list of required packages and patches. The OCDoctor, among other functions, can check a system to see if it meets the prereqs for an Agent, Proxy, or Enterprise Controller installation. To check a system, you can download the OCDoctor from http://java.net/projects/oc-doctor/downloads, unpack it on the target system, and run it with the --agent-prereq option. This will tell you what (if anything) needs to be done so that the system can support an Agent.
