RE: 11g Grid Control Configuration Issue

I'm using an database and I may just have to start over. It only ran for about 2 hours. I was trying to figure out what it was telling me and I hit the back button in the browser and got a page telling me that there was an error. I hit the back button again and I got a timeout in the browser. From that point on, all I got was a timeout page.

I used emctl status oms and it told me that the webtier was running, but that the oms was not because the password was wrong. I went into SQL*Plus and reset the password to what it should have been (I don't know how it got changed) and tried emctl start oms and then it complained about the repository mismatch. That's where I'm at now.

I can dump it and start over, but I don't know how I got there to begin with.

Nial is correct. The syntax for 11g Grid Control are different.

What version of the database are you using?

From experience, I find it much faster just the start over from scratch versus troubleshooting the beast.

Scott is correct for 11g - emctl is the tool to use for this version. I would however check the likely environment variables carefully. PATH,ORACLE_HOME,TNS_ADMIN etc.
