2 Installing Oracle Rdb Extension for Enterprise Manager 10g EMAgent

This chapter describes how to install the Oracle Rdb Extension for the Enterprise Manager 10g EMAgent.

The following topics are discussed in this chapter:

2.1 Installing the Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g

The Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Agent ("EMAgent") must already be installed on the OpenVMS system. Although the Oracle Rdb Extension will work with either the 10.1 EMAgent or the 10.2 EMAgent, it is recommended that the 10.2 EMAgent be used.

You can find additional information for the Grid Control release and for the Agent release at the Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g home page . The EMAgent 10.2 release notes can be found in ORA_ROOT:[000000] after it is installed

2.1.1 Privileges and Rights Identifiers

The account from which the EMAgent is started must be granted the appropriate privileges to access the Oracle Rdb entity targets that it will be requested to access. The startup process required to run the EMAgent is also required to install and access the Oracle Rdb Extension. See the EMAgent release notes mentioned above for additional information on the startup requirements.

2.1.2 Required Patches

The following patches are required in order for the 10.1 EMAgent to run correctly with Oracle Rdb Entities. All the patches are available from the Oracle Metalink website.

No specific patches are required in order for the 10.2 EMAgent to run correctly with Oracle Rdb entities. However, it is highly recommended that the latest 10.2 EMAgent patches be installed for optimimum performance and behavior. All the patches are available from the Oracle Metalink website.

2.2 Preparing to Install the Rdb EMAgent Extension Kit

Once you have obtained the Rdb EMAgent installation kit, copy it to a temporary directory, unzip it, and extract its contents using the OpenVMS Backup utility:
