Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c (13.3) deploy Plug-Ins

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 )

Download Plug-Ins

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
Enter password 
Login successful

Use emcli to import the local opal file. e.g

[oracle@z-oem 13c]$ emcli import_update -file=”/u01/app/oracle/13c/13.2.0.1.0_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.

Deploy Plug-In

From the main screen, select the Setup Cog, then select Extensibility and then Plug-ins.
