That error inevitably means the environment settings such as ORACLE_SID are incorrect, or you haven't started Oracle. I suspect you got this when you ran the repository script and hadn't started the repository database. I haven't done it this way, so I wouldn't know.

If there is anything wrong, I would just wipe all EM stuff and start over with it in its own home. You may be able to fix this with emca script options, or you may descend into emca hell.

The patch level you are at makes a big difference, as does patching itself. Many platform-specific issues, too.

Is there a reason you are using scripts rather than an installer? If you do it yourself, you have to be able to figure out yourself what creates what log. Actually you need to do that anyway, but you can at least get away with relying on support if you follow supported methods. You could try asking support, personally, I've had mixed results with anything having to do with em, though I blame the fragility of the product more than the support org. Do you want grid control or just dbconsole?

What's the stupidest thing you've ever done in your career?
