Hey Everyone,

I'm not a DBA, but I've inherited an Oracle 11g database on a Linux Red Hat 5 box that I am now responsible for. I've had to relocate it, and my host name has changed. I've muddled through a few changes (network & listener changes), and the database seems to be working a- ok.

My problem is that the OEM doesn't seem to be working now. I don't think the dbconsole is running. When I try to launch it, I'm using the command line:

su - oracle - c "export Oracle_SID=databasename;/u01/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db1/bin/emctl start dbconsole"

I'm getting the error:

EM Configuration issue /u01/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db1/hostname_databasename not found

(obviously replace the hostname and database name with the appropriate names)

The hostname however, contains the OLD hostname. I know this is totally wrong, but I tried a quick and dirty method of copying the folder, and changing the name to include the new hostname, but that didn't work.

What do I need to do to get this to work? I obviously have missed something, but since I have no background in the DBA world, I'm not sure what I need to do.

You need to recreate the EM Repository using the "emctl" utility
