Enterprise Manager (EM) clean up in Oracle Database 11.2-12.2 is targeting Enterprise Manager Database Control only. EM DB Control does not exist anymore since Oracle Database 12c and got replaced by EM Express, a light-weight EM.
I’m not a Cloud Control expert but I use the tool from time to time – and most of my customers are heavy users of it, especially in larger deployments.

Can you migrate your EM Cloud Control Repository to another OS platform? Cross-platform and cross-Endianness?
This question sounds so incredibly simple that you won’t even start thinking I guess. Same for ourselves. Use Data Pump. Or Transportable Tablespaces. Or Full Transportable Export/Import if your source is at least 220.127.116.11 or newer.… [Read More]
