Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Express

Amazon RDS supports Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Database Express through the use of the OEM option. Amazon RDS supports the following versions of OEM database:

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Express 12c

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Database Control

OEM Database Express and Database Control are similar tools that have a web-based interface for Oracle database administration. For more information about these tools, see Accessing Enterprise Manager Database Express 12c and Accessing Enterprise Manager 11g Database Control in the Oracle documentation.

Note

The OEM option is not supported for the db.t2.micro, db.t2.small, db.t1.micro or db.m1.small DB instance classes.

The default port number for OEM Database Control is 1158; the default port number for OEM Database Express is 5500. You can either accept the port number or choose a different one when you enable the OEM option for your DB instance. You can then go to your web browser and begin using the OEM database tool for your Oracle version.

Note

The OEM port numbers can't be modified after the option group that specifies the port number has been applied to a DB instance. To change a port number, create a new option group with an updated port number, remove the existing option group, and then apply the new option group. For more information about modifying option groups, see Working with Option Groups.

You can access either OEM Database Control or OEM Database Express from your web browser. As an example, if the endpoint for your Amazon RDS instance is mydb.f9rbfa893tft.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com, and you specify port 1158, the URL to access OEM Database Control is as follows.

Copy to clipboard
https://mydb.f9rbfa893tft.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com:1158/em

When you access either tool from you web browser, the login window appears, prompting you for a user name and password. Type the master user name and master password for your DB instance. You are now ready to manage your Oracle databases.
