Well you are in the right ball park. The emctl status commands do as they suggest ... report back status information.

You have to set the ORACLE_SID correctly in many cases to get relevant info ... export ORACLE_SID=krypton then emctl status dbconsole for example.

It's not hard to create a little thing that you run periodically to make sure tha email alerting is working ... create your own sample problem like a locking thing inside an unused table or whatever floats your boat.

The farther away your stray from Oracle strategic direction in terms of os platforms ( linux ) the more likely you are to run into strange things. In other words, support for other platforms isn't what it used to be. Received on Wed Oct 15 2008 - 19:24:27 CDT
