Re: OMS and Repository Preferences

So my question is:
If the license for the database for OMR is included in the product being monitored, as long as no options (eg: RAC) are involved: is the Standby database for OMR - covered by DG Broker & Observer - also included [aka free]?
If yes, then we have an opportunity to learn how to configure OMS, and/or to learn how to use VIP under OMR.
I love learning opportunities.

I would prefer to use my EM monitoring and alert script vs. having to go to my manager and explain to him that I need more budget for licensing costs! Correct me if RAC is free for EM, but I see no documentation saying otherwise.

I now have new clients, new systems to work on and at least two EM12c environments to build out in the near future.
