At the beginning of July Oracle released Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13.3 so I thought it was a good time to see what has changed and also document how to import an OEM Plug-In.
To get started, I created a new Oracle 12.2 database and then installed OEM 13.3 following the steps produced by my good friend Tim Hall aka ( Oracle-Base )
A good place to get Oracle Enterprise Manager Plug-In’s is from the Oracle Extensibility Exchange, here you will find many OEM Plug-Ins which have been developed by Oracle Partners and up-loaded for use by the Oracle Community.
Now search for the required OEM Plug-In
Once downloaded transfer the file to your OEM server ready for importing.
Import the Plug-In
Logon to Enterprise Manager from the command line:
[oracle@z-oem 13c]$ emcli login -username=sysman
Use emcli to import the local opal file. e.g
[oracle@z-oem 13c]$ emcli import_update -file=”/u01/app/oracle/13c/18.104.22.168.0_vlss.pure.xvp1_2000_0.opar” -omslocal
Processing update: Plug-in – Enterprise Manager for Pure Storage Flash Array
Successfully uploaded the update to Enterprise Manager. Use the Self Update Console to manage this update.
From the main screen, select the Setup Cog, then select Extensibility and then Plug-ins.
From the Plug-Ins page, select the ‘Pure Storage FlashArray’ plug-in in the ‘Servers, Storage and Network’ section
Then select Deploy On and choose Management Servers.
If the prerequisites checks pass you can continue with the Plug-Ins workflow.
Provide sys credentials for the OEM repository, and then click ‘Next’
At the step 4 ‘Review’, hit ‘Deploy’ to initiate the deployment process.
Now Click on Status to monitor progress of the deployment.
If the Plug-In deploys successfully you will see the ‘Status’ change to a green tick.
You are now ready to configure and use the newly installed OEM 13c Plug-InFollow @RonEkins
