I think this is answered in metalink Note:280034.1 (or the note it refers to), but as I have had other problems with EM after applying this patch on hp-ux (including having dbconsole go totally tits-up after following a secure-the-control suggestion by support) and have way too much actual work to do to screw with it, I'm just accepting the situation for now, now that this fragile dbconsole is working. I for one would be interested in the answer. The Oracle® Enterprise Manager Advanced Configuration manual, chapter 5, allegedly explains how to do this, but I'm not very trusting of it just now. It might just be a simple matter of secure reconfiguration, check the logs and properties files that are changed.
