OEM13c – The page has expired. Click OK to continue.

If you are getting an error message or Pop-UP which says “The page has expired. Click OK to continue.” This means that your Cloud Control session has expired or timeout as there was no activity in your session.

The default value for session timeout is 45 minutes. Can we increase this session timeout frame, YES! You can. You set this value as per requirement of your company’s security policy. It may vary for different clients or companies.

As per your requirement you can increase the Session Timeout time by changing the value of “oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime” parameter. Also note that the value for this parameter is always defined in Minutes. In-my case the requirement was to keep the session active unless the user itself does not logs out from the application. So I set the value of oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime” parameter to -1. But if let’s say you want the session to be active for 10 hours you can set the value to 600. However if you want your session be active forever like in my case, you can set its value to -1.

NOTE: Zero means that the value is set to default than 45 minutes.

To check which session timeout is currently active, you can deduct the following command.

[oracle@hanoemap1 bin]$ cd –

/app/oracle/product/middleware13C/bin

[oracle@hanoemap1 bin]$ ./emctl get property -name oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 2

SYSMAN password:

Value for property oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime at Global level is -1

[oracle@hanoemap1 bin]$

clip_image001

NOTE: This change will need your OMS to restart, if you have multi-OMS environment, you may need to bounce both OMS.

You can also change this property from EM Console if you want. Navigate to Setup -> Manage Cloud Control -> Management Servers.

clip_image003

From Management Servers Home Page, Drop Down Management Servers and click on “Configuration properties”

clip_image004

On Management Server Configuration Properties Page, you can see all the properties listed, along with “oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime” in our case, highlighted in Yellow.

clip_image006

Click on the property Name, for whom you want to change the value. It will take you to “Set Property” page where you can make the changes.

clip_image008

Make the change in the property value and Click on Save.

Thanks

OEM13cR2 migration from RHEL 6 to RHEL 7

OEM13cR2 migration from RHEL 6 to RHEL 7

 

In this Blog I have documented all the steps you need to follow if you are planning to migrate your “OEM13cR2” from RHEL 6 to RHEL 7. In my environment I had my production OEM12cR4 on RHEL 6, which I upgraded to OEM13cR2. Since we were in process of migrating all our database and application servers to RHEL 7, there comes the requirement when I have to migrate my OEM13cR2 as well to RHEL 7. In My environment I have having both OMS and OMR {Repository Database} on same machine.

 

Make sure you have below mentioned Passwords with you before you start the migration process.

  • Sysman
  • Weblogic
  • Agent Registration Password
  • Administration Server Password
  • Node Manager

 

Note:  Before performing the migration of OEM13cR2 to RHEL 7 makes sure you have valid backups of OMS_Home, Software Library & Repository Database. The Repository database can be migrated before OMS migration or after OMS migration.  

 

 

 

 

Below mentioned Bug has reported for the first time with Oracle during this migration of OEM13cR2 to RHEL7. Oracle has provided Patch 24903006 make sure to apply the patch after the “Software Only” install of OMS on RHEL 7.

 
Note: This is INTERNAL ONLY research. No action should be taken by the customer on this information. This is research only, and may NOT be applicable to your specific situation.
Bug 25211101 : OMS recovery on a diff host fails during OMS Secure
Bug 24903006
: EM 13.1: OMS RECOVER FAILED AT SECURE OMS STEP

 

 

 

Perform these steps on source server [houoemap1]

Step: 1 Check source OMS details 

[oracle@houoemap1 bin]$ cd $OMS_HOME/bin

[oracle@houoemap1 bin]$ ./emctl status oms –details

As already mentioned the above query returns the list of plug-ins along with the URLs to download them if they were downloaded through self-update. 

 

Once you have downloaded the plugin’s move them to new server [target – houoemap2]

 

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ pwd

/backup/OEM13cR2_linuxX64/oem13c_plugins

 

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ mv p24746640_112000_Generic.zip p24746640_112000_Generic.opar

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ mv p24746646_112000_Generic.zip p24746646_112000_Generic.opar

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ mv p24746666_112000_Generic.zip p24746666_112000_Generic.opar

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ mv p24746691_112000_Generic.zip p24746691_112000_Generic.opar

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$ mv p24746715_112000_Generic.zip p24746715_112000_Generic.opar

[oracle@houoemap2 oem13c_plugins]$

 

 

Perform these steps on source server [houoemap2]

Step 5: Install OMS 13c home on new target host in Software only mode

ORACLE_HOME path exactly should match with source host. Do not run ConfigureGC.sh after software only installation. 

clip_image002[6]

 

 

Step 6: Install plugins if you installed non default plugins and additional plugins. 


Also once the installation of OMS is done, make sure, if you have applied any patches on source OMS those need to apply on new OMS home. 

 $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/install/PluginInstall.sh -pluginLocation <Plugins downloaded locations> 

./PluginInstall.sh -pluginLocation /app/oracle/product/oem13c_plugins/

                     

 

 

clip_image004[6]

 

 

clip_image005[6]

 

Step 7: Copy Software Library from source to target host, also copy the Inventory folder from source OMS to target OMS server.

Note: If the inventory folder exists on target server then take a backup of original folder on target server then copy from source to target.

Note: If BIP publisher was already configured, all BIP shared locations (sharedLoc) should also be accessible.

[ tar the swlib file then untar on target server in the same path. ]


e.g: running from target OMS server


scp -r oracle@houoemap1: /data2/oms12cr3/omsshared/ /data2/oms12cr3/omsshared/

scp -r oracle@houoemap1:/app/oracle/oraInventory /app/oracle/oraInventory

 

Step 8: Copy OMS backup file to target host [houoemap2]

 

Copy the backup file to the target host which was generated in step 2.

[oracle@houoemap1 emcc]$ scp  /backup/OEMTST_OMS_BACKUP/opf_ADMIN_20161222_084714.bka oracle@houoemap2/backup/OEMTST_OMS_BACKUP/opf_ADMIN_20161222_084714.bka

Step 9: Check if emInstanceMapping.properties and gc_inst directory exists 


Login to target machine [houoemap2] and make sure “emInstanceMapping.properties” file and “gc_inst” directory does not exists. If it exists the make sure you delete/move/rename them.

 

 /u01/app/oracle/product/13.2.0
[oracle@emcc oms]$ ls sysman/config/emInstanceMapping.properties
ls: cannot access sysman/config/emInstanceMapping.properties: No such file or directory
 

 

 

Apply Patch 24903006  before starting the recovery of OMS.

Step 14: Configure Agent on the OMS host. [TARGET HOST “HOUOEMAP2”]

 

OEM agent is installed by default when you did the software only installation of OEM13c on the target machine but now you need to configure this agent for new OMS now. Use the below mentioned command to configure the agent.

 

 [oracle@houoemap2 install]$ pwd

/app/oracle/product/agent12cr3/agent_13.2.0.0.0/sysman/install

 

[oracle@houoemap2 install]$ ./agentDeploy.sh AGENT_BASE_DIR=/app/oracle/product/agent12cr3/ AGENT_INSTANCE_HOME=/app/oracle/product/agent12cr3/agent_inst ORACLE_HOSTNAME=houoemap2.dksharma.com AGENT_PORT=3872 -configOnly OMS_HOST=houoemap2.dksharma.com EM_UPLOAD_PORT=4903 AGENT_REGISTRATION_PASSWORD=formula123

Step by Step document to Apply PSU to OEM12c

In this document I have mentioned the step by step process which you have to follow in order to apply PSU to OEM12c. The example shown in this document is for OEM12cR4 which is my current environment. I have documented this process as the step involved are slightly different that normal steps for database patching, OMS patching involves some additional steps.

 

Step 1: Check OMS Details as it will be needed in later steps.

Download the latest PSU from Oracle Support and move it to OEM Server.

Step 2: Check OMS Details as it will be needed in later steps.

Step 3: WebLogic encrypted configuration and key files.

Create directory to store property file.

[oracle@hanoemap1 ~]$ cd /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/

[oracle@hanoemap1 oms]$ mkdir -p oms_encr

Run the following script to create the WebLogic encrypted configuration and key files.

<OMS_HOME>/OPatch/wlskeys/createkeys.sh –oh <full path of platform OMS Oracle Home> -location <location to put the encrypted files>

[oracle@hanoemap1 bin]$ cd /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/OPatch/wlskeys

[oracle@hanoemap1 wlskeys]$ ./createkeys.sh -oh /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms -location /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr

Please enter weblogic admin server username: weblogic

Please enter weblogic admin server password: formula1

User configuration file created: /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/config

User key file created: /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/key

‘createKeys’ succeeded.

[oracle@hanoemap1 wlskeys]$

Step 4: Create the property file with the following entries:

Enter the details of the WebLogic Administrator Server URL retrieved in STEP 1

WLS Domain Information

Domain Name : GCDomain

Admin Server Host : hanoemap1.emdeepaksharma.com

Admin Server HTTPS Port: 7103

Admin Server is RUNNING

 

The output displayed contains the WebLogic Adminstrator Server details. Here is an example on how to construct the URL with these output details. Property file should contain below mentioned information and should look similar to the following once completed:

AdminServerURL=t3s://<host address from where admin server is running>:<port of the admin server>

AdminConfigFile=<‘config’ file location>

AdminKeyFile=<‘key’ file location>

 

Following is the example of how a property file (constructed by the above mentioned guidelines) should appear:

AdminServerURL= https://hanoemap1.emdeepaksharma.com:7103

AdminConfigFile=/app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/config

AdminKeyFile=/app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/key

 

Create directory for property file followed by creation of text file as mentioned below

mkdir –p  /app/oracle/product/middleware/property_file

cd /app/oracle/product/middleware/property_file

vi property_file.txt

 

Add below mentioned entries in “property_file.txt”

AdminServerURL= https://hanoemap1.emdeepaksharma.com:7103

AdminConfigFile=/app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/config

AdminKeyFile=/app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/oms_encr/key

 

Step 5: Analyze the PSU

Make sure you have the latest OPatch for your OMS. The analyze process will fail with error if the OPatch is not latest.

Run the following command on OMS instance home to ensure that you do not have any issues with configuration and binary prerequisite checks. Please note: the OMS should be online when you do this step only.

export ORACLE_HOME=$OMS_HOME

export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch:$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH:

Navigate to the patch folder and analyze the patch.

[oracle@hanoemap1 middlware]$  cd /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr4/oms/22132672

While Installing the System patch

$ opatchauto apply -analyze  [–property_file <location of property file>]

[oracle@hanoemap1 22132672]$$ opatchauto apply -analyze -property_file “/app/oracle/product/middleware/property_file/property_file.txt”

OEM13c Release 2 Step by Step Upgrade

This is the step by step document to upgrade OEM12cR4 to OEM13cR2. Mentioned below are some important prerequisites, make sure to you do not skip anyone of them before starting your upgrade.

Prerequisites

· Check the certification matrix to make sure your existing environment is certified for this upgrade. I have already gather the required details.

· EM13cR2 OMS requires Oracle 12.1.0.2 as repository database.

· EM13cR2 agents don’t support Enterprise Linux earlier than version 6.

· Back up your repository database and OMS.

· Another important point to take is the timezone of Repository Database and OMS machine. Since in our case we have both OMS and Database on the same machine so it does not matter. However if the timezone is not same then, Upgrade will fail at ‘Plug-ins Perquisites check’ step.

 

Certification Matrix

certification_matrix13cr2

Since our Existing environment is on RHEL Linux 6 so the certification matrix is based on that.

certification_matrix13cr2_1

There are few plugin’s which have been obsoleted in new release 13c. Check if there are any obsolete plug-ins in your current system. Un-deploy obsolete plugins if exists both from OMS and Agent before proceeding with upgrade to EM13.2:

  • EMC Symmetrix Array (oracle.em.sesy)
  • EMC Celerra Storage (oracle.em.secs)
  • EMC CLARiiON Array (oracle.em.secl)
  • Microsoft Biz Talk Server (oracle.em.smbs)
  • Exalogic Elastic Cloud Infrastructure (oracle.em.soee)

 

Upgrade Process.

Step 1: Copy EMKey to the Management Repository.

Note: EMKey is used during upgrade, EM13c will need to access EMKey. { secret key to encrypt password}

$OMS_HOME/bin/emctl config emkey -copy_to_repos

Step 2: Make sure you have “optimizer_adaptive_features” disabled in your repository database, if not run the below mentioned SQL command.

SQL> alter system set optimizer_adaptive_features=false scope=spfile;

 

Step 3: If you have upgraded your database recently, make sure that database compatibility parameter equal to the database version.

SQL> alter system set compatible=”12.1.0.2.0″ scope=spfile

To make the new changes take effect, please restart your database.

Step 4: Download the OEM13cR2 Setup from Oracle Website. Use the below mentioned URL to download 6 files included in setup.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oem/grid-control/downloads/oem-linux64-3237624.html

Step 5: Copy Software on the installation server.

Make you copy all 5 files in one single folder. NOTE: Please do not unzip any file, EM13c installation doesn’t need you to unzip the files. In EM13c we have “em13200_linux64.bin” as executable we have to run this file as “oracle” user.

image1

Step 6: Run the Setup and enter MOS Details.

image2

 

The first screen that pops-up will request your credentials for MOS. This is optional not mandatory if you want to receive updates from Oracle you can put your credentials or you can leave it blank as well. “CLICK NEXT” to proceed.

Step 7: Software Update (Optional)

Next step is the software update window, here you will be prompted if you want to check for any new updates available for your new release on which you ware upgrading. Since 13c is released recently so it already contains all latest updates, still if you want to check you can do that by simply providing your MOS credentials as shown below in the screenshot.

image3

image4

Step 8: Pre-requisite Checks

At this step setup performs a check to make sure all the pre-requisites are passed successfully. Make sure you do not have Warning or Failed status for any one of the pre-requisites. Some warnings can be ignored but make you fix the “Failed” pre-requisites before proceeding to the next step as it can FAIL you upgrade later.

image5

 

Step 9: Installation Types

In this step you will be prompted to select the “Installation Type”, since we are doing the upgrade we will select “Upgrade as existing Enterprise Manager System”. For upgrade there is only one option available “One-System Upgrade”.

Select the radio button as shown in the screenshot below and click on “NEXT”.

image6

 

Step 10: Installation Details.

In this step you will be prompted to enter the middleware home location for new Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c. Make sure you provide the correct location as this is the directory where all binaries for OEM13c going to be stored.

image7

 

Step 11: Database Connection Details.

Here you have to provide the connection details for your OMR database. Since we are doing the upgrade of our existing environment, “Connect Descriptor” field is already filled. You have to provide “SYS and SYSMAN” passwords.

image8

EM13c gives as option to disable DDMP during the upgrade.

If you are planning to stop your EM for POST upgrade maintenance then it is recommended to DISABLE DDMP jobs. Deferred Data Migration (DDMP) is a post-upgrade activity to migrate the historical data of your old Enterprise Manager. Depending on how much data stored, it may take same time.

Also, before proceeding to next step make you have you have already backed-up your OMR. Select the check-box and click on “NEXT”.

Before you proceed, make sure you have applied latest PSU on your database to avoid failure during your repository upgrade.

Note: If you haven’t stopped the OMS and agent running on your OMS and OMR server (if OMS and database are on separate machines) , please stop them now. Once OMS and Agent are down then click on NEXT.

Run the below mentioned commands to stop OMS and Agent respectively.

$OMS_HOME/bin/emctl stop oms -all
$AGENT_HOME/agent_inst/bin/emctl stop agent

Although you stop the agents, you may still get a warning about them. Ignore it and continue to upgrade.

 

Step 12: Database Configuration Check.

When you click on “NEXT” in “Database Connection Details” window in the last step, it performs come checks for the existing database.

Offline Database Patching in OEM12c

 

This is the step by step document of how you do database patching from OEM. Before we start I’ll just give small introduction about Patching in OEM.

There are two different methods by which we can do patching in OEM:

● Out-Of-Box Patching

● In-Place Patching

Out-Of-Box patching is the recommended method by Oracle, the advantage of using this method is that it reduces your downtime. On the contrary you need to have some extra (almost double to you ORACLE_HOME) space on your disk as this method CLONE your ORACLE_HOME so that in case of failure revert back is easily possible.

In-Place patching is also known as Offline patching, in this method downtime is more as compare to Out-Of-Box patching. So if you have planned maintenance window you can easily adopt this method.

In this blog we will be performing In-Place patching. So let’s see what are some prerequisites required before patching your database.

 

Required Roles and Permission:

● EM_PATCH_DESIGNER

● EM_PATCH_OPERATOR

● EM_PATCH_ADMINISTRATOR

 

Step 1: Create Normal and Privilege Credentials for Host

Before we start with the patching process make sure we have “Normal and Privilege” credentials set. Login to OEM console and create Normal and Privilege credentials if already not created.

Navigate to “Setup -> Security -> Named Credentials ”

clip_image002[5]

Click on Create and put the required Details.

 

clip_image004[5]

Make sure you TEST credentials before you SAVE them. So that the credentials are validated.

 

clip_image006[5]

 

Step 2: Download Patches and Upload them to Software Library.

Download the patches to be applied from MOS and upload them to Software Library. Navigate to “Enterprise -> Provisioning and Patching -> Saved Patches” and follow the below mentioned steps.

 

clip_image008[9]

 

clip_image010[6]

 

clip_image012[4]

 

Step 3: Check Recommended Patches and their details.

In order to check the recommended patches and details about them. Login to OEM using your credentials and Navigate to “Patching” Home Page as shown in the screenshot below. (Enterprise -> Provisioning and Patching -> Patches & Updates)

 

clip_image014[4]

 

Patch Recommendations Details are shown on this homepage in the bottom left corner. (Classification View)

 

clip_image016[4]

 

You can either see the details by selecting Classification View as shown in the above screenshot or by Target View as shown below. Else we also have “All Recommendations” link as well which will show all details together.

(Target View)

clip_image018[4]

 

Click on “Database Instance” to check recommended patches. Patches are displayed in the form of table with details like Patch Name, Description, Release, Platform etc.

If you further want to check information for specific patch, select the particular patch row and further details like SPU’s include, Bugs resolved will be displayed below. You will also get the option to download the patch or add to Patch Plan.

 

clip_image020[4]

 

If you click on “All Recommendation” link on the “Patches & Updates” Home page you will get something like this . All patches for different targets clubbed together in single table.

 

clip_image022[4]

 

Particular Patch Details

Click on single row to check the details about that patch.

 

clip_image024[4]

 

Step 4: Create a Patch Plan and add patches

After we have confirm the patches to be applied and their details. Next step is to add particular patch to a Patch Plan. Select a particular row and Click on “Add to Plan” followed by “ Add to New ” as shown in the below screenshot.

 

clip_image026

 

Create New Plan pop-up window will open, please enter a meaningful name and click on “Create Plan” button.

 

clip_image028

 

Now Click on “View Plan” to check the Plan details.

 

clip_image030[4]

 

Step 5: Deploy Patch

Patch deployment is a 5-step process,

1. Plan Information

2. Patches

3. Deployment Options

4. Validations

5. Review & Deploy

Once you have created a Patch Plan, follow the above mentioned process and step by step and at last deploy the patch.

 

Plan Information

This step involved Plan description and the permissions, Enter the plan information details followed by granting permissions to existing users.

 

clip_image032[4]

 

Patches

In this step you can add multiple patches to existing Patch Plan.

clip_image034[4]

You can search the patches in three different ways, using Patch Number, using Advanced Method or by Recommended Patch Advisor.

clip_image036[4]

Deployment Options

This is further multi-step process. Screenshot for each step is show below.

How to Patch {In Place or Out-Of-Box method}

What to Patch {Database Instance Targets details}

Where to Stage {Location of staging directory}

Credentials Information {Host Credentials with sudo permissions}

Customization

Notification {Email notifications phase}

Rollback {Rollback option in-case of failure}

Conflict Check {If any existing patch is conflicting}

clip_image038[4]

 

Select the tested Named Credentials and Privilege Credentials for the host on which you are deploying the Patch. Do not forget to Validate them.

Make sure “Named Credentials and Privilege Credentials” are different if your OEM is 12.1.0.4.0 as there is BUG reported in OEM12cR4.

 

clip_image040

Verify effected Database Instance Targets and Staging Directory by default it goes to “%emd_emstagedir%” directory.

 

clip_image042

 

Verify Customization, Notification, Rollback and Conflict Options before proceeding further.

clip_image044

 

Validation

Click on the “Analyze” button to start the Validation process, this process can take time depending on the Patches and Targets involved.

clip_image046

clip_image048

Check if any Issue remains even after Validation, Review them and then resolve them before proceeding further.

clip_image050

In-case there is some failures like I got the one shown below during the Review Process, make sure you fix them and then proceed with the “Deployment” process.

clip_image052

 

Review & Deploy

This is the last option, this page will display all information make sure you review the information thoroughly and if everything looks good click on “Deploy” button to start the deployment process.

Back to OEM Basics – Agent12c Blocked by OMS [Agent Resynchronization]

This blog is a part of my “Back to OEM Basics” series. In this I have explained in details how easily you can solve your “Agent blocked by OMS” issue. With the help of logs and screenshots I have made it more simple to understand.

Lets got step by step and see how you can fix your problem and can Unblock an blocked agent.


Oracle Agent usually gets blocked when it is Out-Of-Sync with the OMR repository database.

 

Step 1: How to check if agents are blocked, this can be simply done by login-in to OEM.

 

Please login to OEM and navigate to “Setup-> Manage Cloud Control –> Agents” as shown in the screenshot.

 

agent_blocked0

 

The “Manage Cloud Control” AGENTS home page will give you list all of the installed agents, you can sort the list using the “STATUS” column as shown in the below screenshot.

Step 2: Login to Agent server and check the logs to verify the cause.

 

I checked agent logs on the server where agent was BLOCKED and this is what I found.

 

Agent Logs:-

Agent is Running and Ready

 

Step 4: Navigate to Agent home page in Oracle Enterprise Manager Console to verify and rectify issue.

 

agent_blocked1

 

The error message in console as well clearly shows that agent is Blocked and need to “unblock” it manually.

 

Step 5: Navigate to “Resynchronization” under “Agent” on the home page as show in the screenshot below.

 

agent_blocked2

 

Step 6: Select unblock agent Under “Agent Resynchronization” make the checkbox is checked and click on “Continue”.

 

agent_blocked3

 

 

Step 7: This confirms that “Agent Resynchronization” job has been executued successfully.

 

You can monitor the progress of the job by clicking the Job Name {eg. RESYNC_20160920104720}

 

agent_blocked4

 

Step 8: Check RESYNC Job Details and verify  if it is completed.

 

agent_blocked5

 

Step 9: Navigate back to agent home page and verify Agent status.

It should be “UP & RUNNING” after the RESYNC job has completed successfully.

 

agent_blocked6

 

This way you can easily un-block all of your Blocked agents and make them again fit for monitoring your targets.

Stay tuned for more “BACK TO OEM BASICS” Topics.
