3 Acquiring The Software
You can get the 11.1.0.1.0 installation software from the product DVD or from
Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at:
http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/oem/index
.html
For more details on how you can obtain the Enterprise Manager Grid Control
software, refer to the "Procuring Enterprise Manager Grid Control Software"
section of the Enterprise Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and
Configuration Guide.
2
Verify that the file size of your downloaded installation
software matches the file size displayed on Oracle Technology
Network (OTN). After downloading the software, run the cksum
command against the downloaded file to ensure that the file size of
the downloaded software is the same as the file size on OTN. For
information about verifying the platform and file size, refer to the
"Procuring Enterprise Manager Grid Control Software" section of the
Enterprise Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and Configuration
Guide, available at the following URL:

4 Before Beginning Your Installation
This section describes prerequisites for installing Enterprise Manager Grid
Control.
Note that the following are required to install the product:
■
■
Oracle WebLogic Server 11g R1 (10.3.2) or higher
A certified Oracle Database on which the Oracle Management Repository can
be configured.
Supported database versions are listed in Document ID 412431.1 on My
Oracle Support (formerly Oracle MetaLink), accessible at the following URL:
https://support.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html
5 Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control
11.1.0.1.0
These instructions assume that you will install a complete Enterprise Manager
Grid Control system using an existing certified Oracle Database on which the
Oracle Management Repository can be configured. Supported database versions
are listed in Article ID 412431.1 on My Oracle Support (formerly Oracle
MetaLink).
See the "Installing Enterprise Manager System" chapter in the Enterprise Manager
Grid Control Basic Installation Guide for installation and post-install configuration
instructions. This document is included on the product DVD.
5.1 Enterprise Manager Grid Control Installation Known Issues
This section covers issues related to installing Enterprise Manager Grid Control.
5.1.1 Enterprise Manager And SOA Suite Cannot Be Installed On The Same
WebLogic Server Instance
If Enterprise Manager Grid Control is installed on a WebLogic Server instance
that already has Oracle SOA Suite installed, the installation will fail with an error
indicating that an old ORACLE_COMMON value cannot be used.
Because the ORACLE_COMMON property is used by both the SOA Suite
Administration Server and the Enterprise Manager Administration Server, these
servers cannot exist on the same WebLogic Server instance.
3
The solution is to un-install SOA Suite and remove the ORACLE_COMMON
value from the WebLogic Server using Oracle Universal Installer. You can then
re-invoke the installer and install Enterprise Manager.
(Bug 9276453)
5.1.2 Ensure Enterprise Manager Host Does Not Resolve As localhost Or To The
Default IP Address
If Enterprise Manager is installed on a host machine that resolves as localhost
or as the default 127.0.0.1 IP address, any attempt at post-installation
configuration will fail.
Before installing Enterprise Manager, check the network configuration to verify
that the host machine resolves to a unique hostname and IP address that are
visible to other machines in the network.
(Bug 9397724)
5.2 Installing An Additional Oracle Management Service
You can install additional Oracle Management Service (OMS) instances into your
existing Enterprise Manager Grid Control environment.
Note that OMS 11.1.0.1.0 is supported with Enterprise Manager Grid Control
11.1.0.1.0 only. If you are installing an additional OMS 11.1.0.1.0 within an
existing Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 2 (10.2.x.x) environment,
you must upgrade the older release to the current release before installing the
new OMS.
Multiple OMS 11.1.0.1.0 instances cannot be installed on the same application
server host machine. Instead, each additional OMS instance must be installed on
a different host. Ensure that the application server location is the same on all
OMS hosts.
See the "Adding An Additional Oracle Management Service" chapter in the
Enterprise Manager Grid Control Basic Installation Guide for prerequisites and
instructions on installing additional OMS instances.
5.3 Installing Additional Management Agents
You can install additional Management Agents into your environment. Several
Agent deployment options are supported in this release.
For instructions on using the recommended mass agent deployment method via
the Agent Deployment Wizard, refer to Chapter 4: "Installing Oracle
Management Agent Using Agent Deployment Wizard" in the Enterprise Manager
Grid Control Basic Installation Guide.
For details on other Management Agent deployment options, refer to the
Enterprise Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and Configuration Guide.
6 Upgrading To Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control
11.1.0.1.0
You can upgrade your existing Enterprise Manager Grid Control 10.2.0.4.0 or
higher installation to Enterprise Manager Grid Control 11.1.0.1.0. The upgrade
4
process will create new Oracle Homes for Grid Control 11.1.0.1.0, but will leave
the Oracle Homes for the previous release intact.
Before beginning, Oracle recommends that you back up the Oracle Home that
will be upgraded, as well as the Oracle Inventory directory. You should also back
up the Management Repository database, as upgrade changes made to the
Repository cannot be rolled back.
Refer to the "Upgrading to Enterprise Manager 11g" chapter in the Enterprise
Manager Grid Control Basic Installation Guide for upgrade prerequisites and
instructions.
The upgrade process will upgrade only the Management
Repository (sysman) schema and will create the new Metadata
Services (sysman_mds) schema within the database. It will not impact
any other data within the database. Even so, a database backup is
strongly recommended.
Note:
In addition, note that you must upgrade Oracle Management Service
to the current release BEFORE upgrading the Management Agent
installed by default with OMS.
6.1 Upgrading Additional Oracle Management Service Instances
Oracle Enterprise Manager allows you to upgrade one or more Oracle
Management Service (OMS) 10.2.0.4.0 or higher instances to the latest version.
If you intend to upgrade multiple OMS instances, perform the following steps:
1.
Stop all of the OMS instances.
2.
Upgrade a single OMS instance. Be sure to set the ORACLE_HOME
environment variable to the location of this OMS instance. The upgrade will
then cause the associated Management Repository (sysman schema) to also
be upgraded. It will also create the Metadata Services Repository (sysman_
mds schema), which stores Grid Control view customization metadata.
3.
Upgrade the remaining OMS instances.
See the "Upgrading to Enterprise Manager 11g" chapter in the Enterprise Manager
Grid Control Basic Installation Guide for prerequisites and instructions on
upgrading Oracle Management Service instances.
If your Oracle Management Service (OMS) version is 10.1.0.x, or lower than
10.2.0.3, refer to the respective platform ReadMe or to Note 1076420.1 for the
upgrade path.
6.2 Upgrading Management Agents
You can upgrade an existing Oracle Management Agent 10.2.0.4.0 or higher to
the latest version using the built-in Agent Upgrade Wizard, which can be
accessed from the Enterprise Manager Grid Control console.
You must upgrade Oracle Management Service to the current
release BEFORE upgrading the Management Agent installed by
default with OMS.
Note:
5
For instructions on using the Agent Deployment Wizard, refer to "Upgrading
Oracle Management Agent Using Agent Deployment Wizard" in the Enterprise
Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and Configuration Guide.
You can also perform a silent upgrade of your Management Agent. See
"Upgrading Oracle Management Agent Using a Response File" in the Enterprise
Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and Configuration Guide for instructions
on performing a silent Agent upgrade.
If your Additional Management Agent version is 10.1.0.x, or lower than 10.2.0.3,
refer to the respective platform ReadMe or Instruction.txt, or to Note 1076420.1,
for the upgrade path.
7 De-installing Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control
You can de-install existing Enterprise Manager Grid Control components in
either graphical or silent mode.
See "Deinstalling Enterprise Manager System in Graphical Mode" or
"Deinstalling Enterprise Manager System in Silent Mode" in the Enterprise
Manager Grid Control Advanced Installation and Configuration Guide for
de-installation instructions.
