Add Targets in OEM12c Using Guided Process

In this Blog I have explained step by step procedure to discover and add targets  on a HOST on which Agent is already installed.

Note: Oracle Agent installation is mandatory on the host for which you want to discover and push targets in OEM.

  • Navigate to the “Add Targets Manually” screen using the menu at the top-right of the screen (Setup > Add Target > Add Targets Manually).


  • Select the “Add Targets using Guided Process” option, select the target types to be discovered (eg. lets say in this blog I have taken “Oracle Database, Listener and Automatic Storage Manager”) and click the “Add Using guided Discovery…” button.



  • Under “Database Discovery: Search Criteria Agent” enter the host name on which target exists and agent in installed. Click the “Continue” button.



  • Click on “Next” button.


  • Click the “Configure” icon for any discovered targets and enter the required details.



  • Specifying Global Target Properties for Notifications and Administrations Groups and click “OK”.


  • When all the configuration steps are complete, click the “Submit” button, followed by the “Save” button, then finally the “OK” button.


You can now see the recently added “database Instance” target listed on the relevant target {Databases} screen (Targets > Databases).

    1. Hi,

      Sorry for late reply, was occupied last week. Yes you can also monitor sql server databases from Oracle Enterprise Manager. There is special plugin available for “Microsoft SQL Server”, current version going in I guess. You can deploy that plugin can with the help of that you can easily monitor you SQL servers databases. I’ll be soon posting separate Blog on this.
