As a first step towards getting started with Database Management for Exadata Infrastructure, you must perform the prerequisite tasks listed in the following table.
|Discover the associated DB system||Discover the DB System in the on-premises Exadata
Database machine. This will act as a link to discover the associated
Exadata Infrastructure and connect to the storage servers.
You can use the same Management Agent installed to discover the DB system to add connections to the storage servers during the Exadata Infrastructure discovery process.
Note that if
the Exadata Database machine is configured with multiple VM
clusters, then you must install a Management Agent on each of the VM
clusters to discover the associated DB system. Once the DB systems
are discovered for all the VM clusters, then you can add them during
the Exadata Infrastructure discovery process. The Management Agent
must be installed on
|For information on how to discover DB systems, see Discover and Connect to External Database Systems.|
|Create Oracle Cloud Infrastructure IAM user groups||The tenancy administrator must create IAM groups with
users who will discover the Exadata Infrastructure and use Database Management to monitor the storage
servers. It's recommended that you create separate user groups to
perform the following tasks:
||For information on how to create an IAM user group, see To create a group.|
|Create policies to assign permissions to user groups||The IAM user groups must be assigned the required permissions using policies to discover Exadata Infrastructure and monitor the storage servers in Database Management. As mentioned in the preceding row, it's recommended that there's a separation of duties and you create policies to assign permissions to discover Exadata Infrastructure and monitor storage servers to separate user groups.||For information on how to create policies, see Managing
For information on Database Management permissions, see Obtain Required Permissions.
|Set up access to the storage servers in the Exadata Infrastructure||You must perform the following tasks before you add a
connection to the storage servers that you want to monitor using Database Management:
