Enterprise Manager Silent Installation

Introduction

This is another post in my series on silent installations using response files. In previous posts, I covered silent installations for the Grid Infrastructure, RDBMS, post installation configuration steps, and creating the listener and database using response files. In this post, I’ll cover installing Enterprise Manager using a response file.

Enterprise Manager and Firewalls

Just a short post, since this is a fairly common question I see. This morning someone asked me a question about Enterprise Manager and firewalls. They have an environment with EM targets placed in different zones / networks – with firewalls between. In the documentation, it states “Each Management Agent is configured to upload data to one OMS. As a result, if there is a firewall between the Management Agent and its OMS, you must configure the firewall to allow the Management Agent to upload data to the OMS using the upload URL.”

My new role

Today I can finally tell you the good news on my new role. December 8th was my last day at Oracle. So what was the good news? I already have a new job, as a technical architect with a small company called archTIS. I saw the job advertised on LinkedIn and applied, spent an hour and a half in a phone interview the next day, got called in to meet the CEO the day after and he offered me the job on the spot! I’ve already started in the new role, and it looks both exciting AND challenging. Couldn’t be more happy as a result. </p />

Associating Oracle Database 12c Databases with Compliance Standards

In my last post, I walked you through the first part of installing the Oracle Database 12c STIG compliance standards sample code. The next step to using these compliance standards is to associate your Oracle Database 12c databases with these standards. You may recall there are two separate standards in the sample code, one for multitenant databases and the other for conventional architecture databases. The process of associating the databases is the same in each case. You simply have to choose the compliance standard that matches your architecture. In this walkthrough, I will show you how to associate a multitenant database with the “Oracle 12c PDB STIG” compliance standard.

The first step is to go to the “Compliance Standards” tab on the “Compliance Framework” page. To access this, follow the menu path “Enterprise” -> “Compliance” -> “Library”:

Installing the Oracle Database 12c STIG Compliance Standard Sample Code

In a recent post, I announced the release of some sample code that created two new compliance standards for DISA’s Oracle Database 12c Security Technical Implementation Guide. The sample code includes details on how to install the compliance standards, but I wanted to walk you through an example of installing it with screenshots and more commentary than is in the sample code. So let’s start off with some of the assumptions you need to be aware of.

Sample Code Prerequisite Assumptions

As I mentioned in the post announcing the sample code, there are some inbuilt assumptions when using this sample code:

EM13c Release 2 is here!

It’s been a long time coming, but finally we can announce than Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 2 is here! So what are the main new features? Obviously I can’t cover them all in a single blog post, but here are the ones that are highlights to me.

Support for Transport Layer Security 1.2

For our security minded customers, this is functionality that people have been waiting a long time for. Communication between the agent and OMS, the agent and the targets, and in case of target types such as Oracle databases, between the OMS and the targets are now secured with TLS1.2 protocol.

Support for IPv6

Enterprise Manager 13cR2 can now be configured on pure IPv6 or dual IPv6/IPv4 stacks, and it can also be used to monitor and manage IPv6 enabled Exadata systems and IPv6 configurations with (RAC) databases.

Oracle Database 12c STIG Compliance Standard sample code is here!

One of the most requested features in the compliance management area has been a compliance standard for Oracle Database 12c. As most of you would know, Oracle Database 12c has been out for quite some time, and indeed Larry Ellison has just announced at OOW2016 availability of Oracle Database 12cR2 in Oracle’s public cloud offering. However, as I discussed in another post earlier this year, creating a new STIG compliance standard is not a simple matter. In fact, we are still working on integrating the DISA Oracle Database 12c compliance standard into Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.
