At several companies I worked for, there was a lot of confusion about the licensing model of Oracle. The general feeling was that they paid too much for their use of Oracle products, and they were not certain of their compliancy. This post will try to give some clarity about this issue.
Heard about it at Oracle OpenWorld 2015: A new feature in Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c is the possibility to incorporate ORAchk, the healthcheck tool for databases, RAC and Engineered Systems.
This post is about downloading (and importing), deploying and provisioning the ORAchk-plugin. Spoiler-alert: there’s downtime involved of the OMS.
There are two ways for downloading and deploying : offline-patching and on-line, which means whether OEM is connected to My Oracle Support or not. In this post I will describe both methods ( every method by the way with varying success). And of course you can choose between using the command-line EMCLI and the graphical user interface. It’s Enterprise Manager, so mainly using the gui, but sometimes forced to use the command-line.
