EM 12c, EM 13c: How to promote an Oracle Home Target in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control and Refresh the Oracle Home Configuration (Doc ID 1988557.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2017

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Certain operations in Enterprise Manager need to act on the Oracle Home of a target, rather than on the target itself.  For example, cloning a database oracle home, viewing patching recommendations (ie. patches which need to be applied for the Oracle Home of a target).  These operations require the Oracle Home target to exist in Enterprise Manager.  The Oracle Home target is only promoted automatically in database plugin 12.1.0.6 and higher (12.1.0.6 shipped with Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.4) .  In older versions of Cloud Control which use an older version of the database plug-in,  if the Oracle Home target is needed, it must be added by the user.
