Symptoms

When running 'emca -config dbcontrol db -repos recreate' or 'emca -deconfig dbcontrol db -repos drop' to recreate or drop the Enterprise Manager Database Control configuration files and repository the operation hangs and at the same time users are not able to log in to the database.

NOTE : This applicable only for 10g and 11.1 database release.
Starting 11.2.0.1 database release the database is not put into quiesce mode anymore.  However when dropping the repository with emca or repManager for certain 11.2.0.x versions (eg. 11.2.0.2) this warning will be displayed:

WARNING : While repository is dropped the database will be put in quiesce mode.

This warning can be ignored.  The database will NOT be put into quiesce mode for 11.2.0.1 onwards.  This incorrect message which is displayed for 11.2.0.x databases is logged as bug:12861049.  See Note:1356293.1 for further info.
