    DBCA - unable to run "Configure Database Options"

    501285
      Hi!
      I'm trying to configure EM database control. I've tried both dbca and emca without luck.

      When running dbca I only get the "create database" and "manage template" options. What I want to run is "Configure Database Options". I've sat the ORACLE_HOME/ORACLE_SID environment variables before starting dbca. Why does not DBCA recognize that there is already installed one database. Could it be a issue with my oraInventory? What should I be looking for if so?
      I should also mention that I can logon with sqlplus with my current settings.

      An indication that there are problems with oraInventory is that when running emca I get the following error:
      "Database instance unavailable"

      Where can I find the log files from emca?

      Thanks
