DB Console is easy to install. Here are the steps:  

Set your Oracle Sid and Oracle Home (10.2.x)  

$emca -repos create

Follow the instructions. This creates the repository in your database under the SYSMAN user.  

$emca -config dbcontrol db

This sets up the dbcontrol software to run on your machine. After this is complete, you should have a SERVERNAME_SID directory in your oracle home directory. Take note of the url to connect to db control in this step.

To start and stop dbcontrol:  

Set your $ORACLE_SID (you need to start and stop the console for each database that you configured)

emctl start dbconsole

emctl stop dbconsole  

I have just set this up on AIX, version Now here is an interesting tidbit.  

I set up two databases on the machine for dbcontrol. I configured DB1 first followed by DB2. After a server outage, I attempted to start dbconsole for the databases. If I try and start dbconsole for DB2 before DB1, it starts but I am unable to connect to it - something just hangs. The log files show that something is terribly wrong.  

If I start dbconsole for DB1 and then DB2, everything works just fine.  

This is the new and improved console that Oracle is providing to us. Time to start reviewing Tivoli again.

A lot of the functionality was stripped ouf of the 10g Java EM console. My guess would be that the OEM help is incorrect - they probably didn't do a very thorough job of updating it to account for the removed functionality. For example, I found several references to a GUI Outline Manager in the 10g EM documentation, however there really is no GUI Outline Manager in 10g like there was in 9i.  

You probably have to use DB Console - it is like Grid Control, but only for an individual database and it is installed by default with every database, at least if you create it with the DBCA.
