It appears that OEM is not actually included with Oracle 8i for Linux (despite the documentation).

OEM 2.0.4+ is a JAVA tool but is only available for Win95/NT or Solaris installation. If you try and install the Solaris version on Linux the Oracle Installer detects this and complains.

I have heard of one person (on newsgroup for Linux) who tried moving OEM (after installed on Solaris) over to Linux (afterall its Java, right) but it appears to be missing one library file (must depend on a JNI native library or something).

OEM 2.0.4 IS quite a nice tool, if you're administering from Solaris or NT. Its really too bad as they appear to have made it 99% portable (via Java) and then, as I've come to expect, dropped the ball.

Please let me know if you find OEM for Linux (or that last library needed to use the Solaris version)
