Database Oracle

Manually configure the Oracle 10g EM dbconsole

I was having trouble with a 10g database today. I have the database working OK but the web console wasn’t working. It was saying that the database was down even though I knew it was up and working OK. I eventually noticed that it was using the wrong port number trying to talk to the listener. I don’t know how I managed that, but I did.
Anyway, I then had to try and work out how to change what port it was using. I found this web page Manually configure the Oracle 10g EM dbconsole that told me about the emca tool. I used that to reconfigure the setup and then it was fine.

The basics are this
#> emca -config dbcontrol db

But check the page for more information and if you are still having trouble getting OEM to work then you might want to try reading document 278100.1 on MetaLink/My Oracle Support or logging a Service Request with Oracle.
