Configuring Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c for High Availability


Published on

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c provides a complete infrastructure management solution for databases, applications and hardware. Being such a key component in the enterprise naturally leads to concerns about redundancy and high availability. If something does go wrong within the configuration, it should be able to be recovered in the shortest possible time, thus minimizing disruptions to manageability and monitoring of the enterprise infrastructure. It is with these points in mind that Oracle Enterprise Manager has been designed to be able to meet high service and operating levels using different high availability mechanisms.

    1. 1. Configuring Oracle EnterpriseManager Cloud Control 12c for High Availability Session ID# 326 Leighton L. Nelson Mercy
    2. 2. About Me•Oracle Certified DBA with 10+ yearsexperience•Oracle RAC SIG US Events Chair/IOUG Liaison•Co-Author (Expert Oracle Enterprise Manager12c- Apress)
    3. 3. Agenda•Architecture•HA Overview •Level 1 HA – Single OMS & Repository •Level 2 HA – Active/Passive OMS with Local Data Guard •Level 3 HA – Multiple OMS behind SLB with RAC Data Guard•General Recommendations for HA•Configuration Steps•Backup & Recovery
    4. 4. What is High Availability?99.9999999999999999999999 “Seven Nines” = 3.15 seconds downtime per year
    5. 5. What is HighAvailability?
    6. 6. Architecture
    7. 7. High Availability Levels
    8. 8. Level 1- Single OMS & Repository
    9. 9. Level 1- Single OMS & Repository•Separate servers for OMS & Repository•Keeps resource usage separate •memory_target or sga_size on database repository •Java VM Heap Size - Xmx
    10. 10. Level 1- Single OMS & Repository Pros Cons Simple Setup No redundancy Low cost Scalable
    11. 11. Level 2 – Active/Passive OMS w/ local Data Guard
    12. 12. Level 2 – Active/Passive OMS with local Data GuardOMS binaries installed on shared filesystem NFS/OCFS2Uses virtual hostname Managed by Oracle Clusterware or 3rd party solutionVirtual hostname should resolve to unique IP addressConfigure repository database using local physical standbyw/ Data Guard
    13. 13. Level 2 – Active/Passive OMS with local Data GuardPros ConsProtects against More complexrepository and OMS hostfailureSwitchover time minimal No storage redundancy for OMS Requires additional hardware
    14. 14. Level 3 – Active/Active OMS w/ SLB and RAC Data Guard Repository
    15. 15. Level 3 – Active/Active OMS w/ SLB and RAC Data Guard Repository •Primary OMS with RAC Repository •SLB for multiple OMSs •All access to OMS done via SLB •EM Console •EMCLI •Agents •Standby Database (RAC or Single-Instance)
    16. 16. Level 3 – Active/Active OMS w/ SLB and RAC Data Guard RepositoryPros ConsProtects against Very complexrepository and OMS hostfailureSwitchover time minimal More hardwareProtects against storagefailure
    17. 17. Recommendations for Repository HA•Use dedicated database•Use ASM for database storage•Configure RAC Repository•Configure Standby Database•Configure Fast Start Failover•Review MAA Advisor after OEM installation
    18. 18. Configure DB service for Repository11gR2 methodsrvctl add service -d emrep -s emrepsrvc -lPRIMARY -q FALSE -e NONE -m NONE -w 0 -z 0Pre-11gR2 method•Add service usingDBMS_SERVICE.CREATE_SERVICE•Start Service using DBMS_SERVICE.START SERVICE•Create trigger to start service when in primary role
    19. 19. Recommendations for OMS HA•Configure Multiple OMSs•Configure SLB in Active/Active configuration•Install OMS on separate hosts from repository•Use “Add Management Service” DeploymentProcedure to Add Primary OMS•Use Modified “Add Management Service” Procedureto Add Standby OMSs
    20. 20. Configure OMS HA•Active/Passive configuration uses virtual hostname•Create Application VIP using Clusterware •11gR2 uses appvipcfg command •Pre-11gR2 uses crs_profile command•Clusterware manages failover of virtual hostname•OEM can also be configured as Clusterwareresource
    21. 21. Configure OMS HA•Active/Active configuration requires SLB•SLB requirements •Virtual Servers •Persistence (Stickiness) • Health Monitoring•Register virtual hostname and IP in DNS
    22. 22. Configure OMS HA
    23. 23. Configure OMS HA1 Create Pools • Group of servers receiving on same port • One pool per service1 Create Virtual Servers • Redirects requests to servers in pool • Clients access virtual hostname and IP1 Create Health Monitors • Checks health of services at an interval
    24. 24. Configure OMS HA•Secure OMS with SLB $OMS_HOME/bin/emctl secure oms -sysman_pass -reg_pwd regpass -host -secure_port 4904 -slb_port 4904 -slb_console_port 443 -reset -console -lock_console
    25. 25. Configure OMS HA•Re-secure Agents with SLB •emctl secure agent –emdWalletSrcUrl•Re-configure EMCLI •emcli setup –url= – username=sysman
    26. 26. Configure OMS HA•Configure OMS to use SCAN name in 11gR2 orVIPs in pre-11gR2 for RAC emctl config oms -store_repos_details -repos_conndesc " (DESCRIPTION= (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP) ( ) (CONNECT_DATA=(SERVER=DEDICATED) (SERVICE_NAME = emrep)))" -repos_user sysman
    27. 27. Configure OMS HA•Configure OMS to use service name whendatabase role changes in 11gR2 emctl config oms -store_repos_details -repos_conndesc (DESCRIPTION=(FAILOVER=ON) (ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=oemhost1) (PORT=1521))(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=oemhost2) (PORT=1521))) (CONNECT_DATA=( (FAILOVER_MODE=(TYPE=select)(METHOD=basic))) -repos_user sysman
