Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control: Install & Upgrade Workshop

Request more details:

Description:
This training course is the first in a series. This course is intended to provide an in-depth understanding of the architecture of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control platform. It guides you through a step-by-step installation and preliminary configuration of a Cloud Control instance. Operating system specific considerations that apply to installing the Cloud Control on a Linux, Unix or MS Windows host are provided, along with numerous examples. Potential problems and pitfalls are discussed and possible troubleshooting remedies are offered.
You will learn how to discover within the systems infrastructure a host system and a software installation running on that host, such as a database or middleware application server instance. Incorporating the host system and the software installation into the Enterprise Manager 12c framework then allows the Cloud Control to be used to manage those targets.
Prerequisites:
The use of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control requires access to an Oracle database installation, which serves as a metadata repository for the Oracle Enterprise Manager installation. A prerequisite for the successful installation and use of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control platform is a pre-existing and certified database installation. For this reason, a prerequisite to this course is either ORACLE DATABASE 12C: INSTALL & UPGRADE WORKSHOP or ORACLE DATABASE 11G: STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE. These prerequisite courses also cover basic host system configuration and Oracle software installation techniques that are helpful to complete an Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control installation.
Audience:
The target audience for this course is all Oracle professionals. Among the specific groups for whom this course will be helpful are:
Database administrators
Web server administrators
System administrators
Implementation specialists
Data center support engineers
