emctl configuration error [message #184468] Wed, 26 July 2006 12:45 Go to next message

i'm trying to use the emctl on solaris, but get the following error :

./oracle/product/10.2.0/bin/emctl status dbconsole

OC4J Configuration issue. /apps/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/oc4j/j2ee/OC4J_DBConsole_<host>_<SID> not found.

couple of questions in relation to emctl :

1. is emctl on unix an independent tool to manage the oracle database - creating schemas, creating objects, db backups etc?

2. or do you need a windows counterpart of emctl, too, working in conjunction with the emctl on unix, to manage the db on solaris?

3. what's this i hear about a url through we we can invoke enterprise manager? how does this work?

appreciate any feedback.

Are you talking about the Application server or database server?
Whatever it is , in an overview (not exactly correct)
>> 1. is emctl on unix an independent tool to manage the oracle database - creating schemas, creating objects, db backups etc?
EMCTL is just a command line interface for tool.
In application server terms, this is waht you can do.
[oracle@xxxx oracle]$ emctl

Unknown command option
       emctl start|stop|status
       emctl reload | upload
       emctl set credentials [<Target_name>[:<Target_Type>]]
       emctl gencertrequest
       emctl installcert [-ca|-cert] <certificate base64 text file>
       emctl set ssl test|on|off|password [<old password> <new password>]
       emctl set password <new pwd>
       emctl authenticate <pwd>
       emctl switch home [-silent <new_home>]
       emctl config <options>

emctl config options can be listed by typing "emctl config"

With reference to the Oracle database server installation, in later version of Oracle, emctl is a tool to create/start the console.

>>creating schemas, creating objects, db backups etc
Most probably this can done in EM(enterprise manager).
The rest of your questions are answered in Database.
In the older versions, there was an GUI oracle tool called OEM (enterprise manager), which can be used for a certain operations (basic administration in standalone mode). The same OEM can be extended to have a centratlized repository so that many databases can be adminstered from ONE area (enterprise wide).
In the newer versions, Oracle introduced all these functionalities with a web interface (Just an attempt to make oracle "user friendly").
So had you installed Oracle enterprise edition with EMConsole etc, you can invoke the brower to manage/administer the oracle database.
