Install Application (11i/R12) Management Pack 3.0 with OEM Grid Control

Oracle Application Management Pack (AMP) for Oracle E-Business Suite : is management pack which sits on top of Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Grid Control to manage (Monitor/System alerting, Cloning, Data Scrambling …) Oracle Applications/E-Business Suite (11i/R12).

This post covers installation of Oracle Application Management Pack (AMP) on existing Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control Component (Oracle Management Service & Oracle Management Agent) . To know more about OEM Grid Control components click here

OMS– Oracle Management Service component of OEM Grid Control communicates with Agents and upload data to repository. OMS is also responsible to display data from repository to console (end user’s browser)

OMA– Oracle Management Agent sits on node (machine) which you wish to monitor using OEM Grid Control, OMA uploads managed data to OEM repository (database) via OMS.

Points good to know for AMP 3.0 (Application Management Pack) Installation

1.Latest version of Application Management Pack (AMP) is 3.0 and available via Patch 8333939 on Oracle My Support(pka Metalink)

2. Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Grid Control should already be running and minimum version of OEM Grid control should be 10.2.0.3 (latest OEM grid control version as of 21 June is 10.2.0.5)

3. If you don’t have OEM grid control, first install OEM Grid control 10.2.0.1 and then upgrade it to 10.2.0.3, 10.2.0.4 or 10.2.0.5

4. There are two parts in Application Management Pack 3.0
i) Grid Control Plug-in for Oracle E-Business Suite Management Pack
ii) Management Agent Plug-in for Oracle E-Business Suite Management Pack

Install “Management Agent Plug-in for Oracle E-Business Suite Management Pack” in Management Agent (OMA) ORACLE_HOME of OEM Grid Control.

To understand this better assume below setup
a. Oracle E-Business Suite Database and Concurrent Manager is running on node1
b. Oracle E-Business Suite Form Server is running on node2
c. Oracle E-Business Suite Web Server is running on node3
d. OEM Grid Control 10.2.0.3 or higher(Management Repository, Management Service and Management Agent) is running on node4 then to monitor Oracle E-Business Suite using OEM Grid control follow this process

i) Install OEM Grid Management Agent on Node1, Node2, Node3
ii) Install “Grid Control Plug-in for Oracle E-Business Suite Management Pack” part of AMP 3.0 in OMS_HOME on node4
iii) Install “Management Agent Plug-in for Oracle E-Business Suite Management Pack” part of AMP 3.0 in AGENT_HOME on node1, node2 and node3

5. After installation of AMP 3.0, Discover Oracle E-Business Systems in OEM Grid Control. There are two ways to discover Oracle E-Business Suite System in OEM Grid.
i) Using Discovery Wizard in OEM Grid Console : Target -> Oracle Applications -> Discovery Wizard (in Related Links section)

ii) Command line using ebsdiscovery.sh on OMS HOME of Grid Control : $OMS_HOME/ sysman/ admin/ scripts/ ebs/ cli/ amp/ disc/ ebsdiscovery.sh

Finding a robust patch management solution is becoming more and more difficult as machines are less and less accessible to the management console. I have found success using patch management software from Kaseya. Because of the agent based framework, I have connectivity to every machine that is connected to the Internet, independent of location. – URL: http://www.kaseya.com/products/patch-management/features.aspx

Hi All,

We upgraded our OMS to 10.2.0.5 and AMP from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 on OMS Grid.
Then I upgraded successfully AMP from 2.0.2 to 3.0 on Agent home. But when I am checking the version of agent it still shows 2.0.2.

Steps I followed to check version:

[oraoms@itebsapd2]:/u02/app/applmgr/OEMAGENT_APD2/agent10g/sysman/admin/scripts/ebs:>cat version.txt
Oracle Applications Management Pack for Enterprise Manager Grid Control 10g
Version: 2.0.2

Any Idea?

@ Manish,
I don’t think version.txt is right place (This stores information during initial install)

Start runInstaller (ensure inventory is pointing to correct location) then click on installed products and then select AMP under agent and check version

Atul,

I ran runInstaller and it shows AMP 3.0 installed.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Atul,

One of the AMP3 feature say we can start or stop E-Business Suite components individually or the E-Business Suite as a whole. But I am unable to find that user interface after upgrade.

Are you able to find that feature?

Hi Atul,

I installed OMS10.2.0.5, Agent10.2.0.5 along with AMP3.0. I registered Oracle application targets and was able to view “E-Business Targets” under oracle application tab. Due to some issues I deleted all oracle application targets and re-registered but now Oracle application tab does not show “E-Business Targets”. I tried to discover but discovery failed with the following error (ebsDiscovery_PSUP_rac_database.log);
oracle.apps.fnd.oam.em.sdk.targetData.discovery.ProxyTarget.doesTargetExistInEMRep Doesn’t Exist Name=PSUP-Oracle Applications Serv
ice

I verified this target neither exist in OEM repository ( sysman.MGMT_TARGET) nor in agents (targetx.xml).

Any idea?

Regards,
Amit

I have currently installed grid control 11g, and I need to install AMP the only version I find is 3.0 with a patch 3.1 it never really says if that is compatible with grid control 11g …only talks about 10…
Does it run with 11g grid control? thanks Kathy

Hi
I am trying to add the software library but getting error “Internal Error has occurred. Check the log file for details.”. Is there a way I can configure without OMS.

Thanks
