Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 2 became available in November 2005 and all subsequent versions are currently deployed as an upgrade to that release. Unfortunately, the pre-requisites for the initial release do not support the current releases of the operating system or database, and the support matrix for 10.2.0.1 requires a 10g Release 1 database.
To alleviate this issue, the current release of Oracle Enterprise Manager (Release 5 at the time of writing) supports a software-only install, allowing the product to be installed against current versions of the operating system and database.
This guide details the process for installing that version of Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control against an existing Oracle 11g database on Oracle Enterprise Linux version 5. For the purpose of this guide Oracle VM 2.1.2 has been used as a test bed and the latest patches of all products have been used throughout.
The following is required for this installation method:
2 x servers These servers can be physical or virtual, and although it is possible to install onto a single server, it is not recommended. In this guide I am
using two virtual servers deployed out of Oracle VM 2.1.2.
OEL 5.3 Oracle Enterprise Linux Release 5 update 3; x86 32bit version on DVD
188.8.131.52.0 Oracle Database 11g Release 1
