Can someone help us, we installed Oracle OpsCenter with an embeded database:

(Oracle Solaris

/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/ecadm -V

For a reason when we check the Linux, Solaris 8-10 Software Library, nothing appears into Distribution field,

actually at least 3 Distributions should appears:




as configured in others opscenter's we have, but without embeded DB.

We even try to copy contents of another opscenter that Works correctly, but nothing to do.

We conect to MOS corretly, with correct user sign in then connectivity run by ocdoctor confirm conectivity is done:

Ops Center Doctor 4.68 [OC,SunOS]

    Have you discovered any Sol 8-10, or Linux assets ?.    The UCE services for the library in question will make the appropriate patches available in the library after the channel (Sol 8 sparc,  or Sol 10 x86, or OEL Linux) assets have been discovered.      Prior to any of those assets being discovered by this new Ops Center EC/PC instance the library and channels are null.       The frame work for the library exists but the contents are not available as there is no specific asset type to present available patches.

    You can switch to the Disconnected mode an physically populate the library via the Harvester script discussed in the URL link below.  Though you still need to have an asset type that is served by this library to display the contents in the EC's BUI.

    Enterprise Manager Ops Center Use Disconnected Mode

    I hope this helps

    Please make sure that you discover the solaris 8,9 or 10 asset first.  It will start to download the channel, after discovering the asset.

    Hope this helps.

    Ok thank you for your answer we will probably switch to disconected mode and try script you recomended, because we have already discovered a Solaris 10 asset, as well it has been recomended by support engineer in our SR, but library still empty.

    Aditionaly we discover a Linux asset, but library still empty.

    Hello, we tried everything you recommended, without success, we discovered solaris 10 asset, linux asset, but nothing appears in library, then we tried disconected mode, with Harvester script, but this is unsuccesful.

    When we run the script this is how it finished:

    [email protected]:/var/tmp/harvester/harvester_bundle# ./ --user [email protected] --password-file /root/myoraclesupport.passwd --kb-only

    Ops Center Harvester version 2.16 (May 17 2016 [Build 90]) (SunOS)

    Download log file is located in /var/tmp/harvester-wget.log

    Checking for connectivity...

    ERROR: Unable to connect to Please check config.ini and the file /var/tmp/harvester-wget.log

           Output of the download command is:

    [Harvester version file] ERROR - Could not download. Command used:

    ./ "Harvester version file" ./ "" signatures_file_not_defined

    then we check log and thisi is what appears:

    --2018-05-04 12:36:03--*password**password*

    Resolving failed: node name or service name not known.

    wget: unable to resolve host address ââ

    Error downloading (return code 4), retrying...

    ERROR: Final Error downloading, could not download

    we have alredy configured proxy and ocdoctor --check-connectivity works fine, so we don't understand why couldn't be resolved.

    Any idea?
