Advances in Data Clone and Refresh in EM13c

Enterprise Manager 12c introduced a lot of functionality around cloning Oracle databases and refreshing the data once it was cloned. You can see some of the earlier material I have posted on this area in the following posts:

Enterprise Manager STIG Compliance Standards for Oracle Database 11gR2

This is the second of the two posts I wanted to copy from Dave Wolf’s web site. As I mentioned in the first of these two posts, Dave is a colleague of mine who used to own the DBLM area as far as the Enterprise Manager product management team is concerned. However, he has moved to another area in Oracle and I have inherited his responsibilities for change management, compliance management and configuration management, so I want to make sure this material remains available. This post was originally written in April, 2015, and relates to the STIG compliance standards for Oracle Database 11gR2. I’ll be updating this material with another blog in the next month or so with information on the latest STIG compliance standards, so stayed tuned for that! But here’s Dave’s earlier post:

Enterprise Manager 13c, System Broadcast

I thought this was kind of a cool feature- the ability to send a message to appear to specific or all users in the Cloud Control Console.  I have to admit that I used to like a similar feature in Microsoft/MSSQL to send network broadcast messages to desktops that offered one more way to get information to users that they might be less inclined to miss.

EM12c Compliance ‘Required Data Available’ flag – Understanding and Troubleshooting

This is the first of two posts in the area of compliance management that has been previously published by a colleague of mine, Dave Wolf. Dave has moved to another part of Oracle now, and I’ve inherited some of his reponsibilities as product manager, including change management, compliance management and configuration management, so I wanted to copy his material to my blog so it’s not lost. Thanks Dave, for putting this material together originally!

Enterprise Manager 13c, “Webtier Could Not Be Started”

Let’s say you’re on call and you’re woke from a deep, delightful sleep from the pager, stating the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control isn’t available.

Displaying CPU Graphs For Different Time Ranges in Enterprise Manager

This question was posted in Twitter from @matvarsh30, who asked, “How can I display CPU usage over different periods of time for databases in Enterprise Manager?”

Management Packs, Restricted Use Licenses and the Enterprise Manager

There was a question posted on Oracle-l forum today that should have a blog post for easy lookup for folks.

Updated BI Publisher material

Just a quick note to say the material covered on my BI Publisher page has been updated to include some links specific to EM13c. If you can’t be bothered heading over to that page, here are the two new links </p />

EM13c Upgrade Tips- Part II

There is a flurry of excitement about Enterprise Manager 13c and I’m blown away by how many customers are looking not just to install and test out the new release, but have plans already underway to upgrade to it.

Determining What Management Packs Are Needed

In Enterprise Manager 12c, there was a little known functionality where you could check what management packs you needed to be licensed for to use a particular page in Enterprise Manager. I referred to it many times at conferences I was presenting at, and almost always people did not realize the functionality existed. Let’s see how this works.

To start with, I’m going to go to the Performance Home page for a particular database (accessed via the Performance menu from the Database home page). Note I’m not particularly interested in what it shows me, I’m just using this as an example of a page that requires the licensing of a management pack. Once I’m on that page, I can follow the path Setup -> Management Packs -> Packs for this Page:
