Installing SOACS Hybrid Agent EM13C

In my last post we set up a hybrid agent and installed an OTD agent, in this post we shall create a SOACS agent. I am assuming you have already done the first few steps that were mentioned in my last post OTD Hybrid Agent (http://puredba.co.uk/oracle-traffic-director-otd-hybrid-agent-em-13c/)  

  1. On SOACS Target Host

Insert the OMS server details into the host file:

Create the Agent Directory

 

  1. Add the target in EM Em Console>Setup>Add Targets Manually>Install Agent on Host  

    Click Next

     

    Deploy Agent

     

    We will run script manually, so click continue all hosts. Log onto host and run the following as root.

    • /u01/app/agentHome/agent_13.1.0.0.0/root.sh
    • /u01/app/oraInventory/orainstRoot.sh

     

    Click <done> in your agent install screen.  

    If you go to Targets/Hosts, you will see the SOACS machine.  

    Discovering SOA Suite

    This section describes the procedure for discovering the SOA Suit.

    1. Login to Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control.
    2. Click Targets and then Middleware.

      Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control displays the Middleware page that lists all the middleware targets being monitored.

    3. In the Middleware page, from the Add list, select Oracle Fusion Middleware / WebLogic Domain and click Go. Specify the Administration Server Host, Port, User Name, Password, Agent (local or remote) and the JMX Protocol and click Continue.

    Click Add Targets

    1. You will return to the Middleware page. You will see the SOA instances under the WebLogic Domain.

     

    Wait for a few minutes then drill into the soa target you will need to configure the functionality logins.

     

    Bugs and Fixes

     

    1. This Error Hospital screen will not work, by default.

     

    When you go to this screen it will ask you to set up the target information, when you try to do this you will get the following message.

     

     According to Oracle certifications, it's not supported with 12.1

     #According to the error we need all these jar files.

     Copy all the jar files.

     Now go back to your screen and just do a save not a rescan. If you did a rescan it will still say some error with jar files, but it will say jar files do exist. Save.  The screen works.    

    1. SOA Composite statuses, if they go down they get marked as down but when they come back up the console does not refresh, you will need to do a weblogic domain refresh in the console. You could set up a job that does this refresh automatically.

     

    Summary

     You have SOACS monitored from EM13C cloud control.

Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) Hybrid Agent EM13C

In this post we will set up to monitor OTD in the cloud. Pre-Requisite: When you use the Add Host Targets Wizard or EM CLI to install a Management Agent on a host running on Microsoft Windows, as a prerequisite, you must install Cygwin and start the SSH Daemon on the host. To do so, follow the steps listed in Section 5.3 and 5.4

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/install.121/e22624/preinstall_req_cygwin_ssh.htm#EMBSC281

 

  1. Generate Public and Private Keys on a linux box.

This will generate 2 keys a private and public key Add the public key to the Oracle user (The user being used for connecting to the host from EM13C) on your target OTD host  

  1. Set up the user in EM13c

In EM

Click on Setup, Security and then Named Credentials.  Click on Create under the Named Credentials section, As per below screen shot, insert your details and the keys you generated in step 1.

Click Save.

  1. Create a Hybrid Cloud Agent

You can use an existing agent, but you should create few agents for higher availability.

Go to Agent home on the oms server and do a

Take a note of the agent url : https://********.***.net:3872/emd/main/

 

********.***.net:3872'

Make sure to restart the agent after you're performed this step.  

 

  1. On OTD Target Host

 Insert the OMS server details into the host file:

 

Create the Agent Directory

 

  1. Add the target in EM

 

Em Console

Setup > Add Target > Add Targets Manually

Install Agent on Host

Click Next

Deploy Agent

We will run script manually, so click continue all hosts.

Log onto host and run the following as root.

Click <done> in your agent install screen.

If you go to Targets/Hosts, you will see the machine.

 

  1. Now let's add OTD

In Console, Setup,Add Target, Add targets Manually.

Select Add Using Guided Process

Select Traffic Director

Click Add, The screen below we are adding the info you would use to log into the Traffic Director Console. Also if you need to find the other info, this can be found in the following file /u01/data/otd-instance/admin-server/config/snmpagt.conf for the snmp port if it has been configured.

Click Continue

Click Add Targets

7.Verify OTD

In EM13c Console, Select Targets/Middleware/

The status cross will clear once the agent has collected the data

Drill into the OTD.

We can see Traffic Director Responses and Requests, The cross in the status is because the agent is trying to connect to the SNMP port, which we have disabled at the moment. We can still collect meaningful info, without this.
