Deploying the BIG-IP LTM with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control Welcome to the F5 deployment guide for Oracle® Enterprise Manager 12c with the BIG-IP system. This guide shows administrators how to configure the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) for directing traffic, ensuring application availability, improving performance and providing a flexible layer of security for Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c deployments. Oracle Enterprise Manager is Oracle’s integrated enterprise IT management product line and provides the industry’s first complete cloud lifecycle management solution. Oracle Enterprise Manager’s Business-Driven IT Management capabilities allow you to quickly set up, manage and support enterprise clouds and traditional Oracle IT environments from applications to disk. This deployment guide has been jointly written by Oracle Corporation and F5 Networks and provides the detailed steps for implementation of an Oracle MAA solution for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control using BIG-IP from F5 Networks as the front end for the Cloud Control mid-tiers, known as the Oracle Management Service (OMS). The BIG-IP hardware platform can provide load balancing, high availability, service monitoring, TCP/IP enhancements, and application persistence for the Cloud Control environment as the front end for several Cloud Control services. For more information on Oracle Enterprise Manager, see http://www.oracle.com/us/products/enterprise-manager/index.html For more information on the F5 BIG-IP system, see http://www.f5.com/products/big-ip/

DEPLOYMENT GUIDE Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c

Prerequisites and configuration notes The following are general prerequisites and configuration notes for this guide: hh You must have administrative access to the BIG-IP web-based Configuration utility. hh You must have administrative privileges on the Enterprise Manager system. hh Y  ou must have both the Oracle OMS systems and the LTM configured to use an NTP server for time synchronization. hh Y  ou must have both the Oracle OMS systems and LTM configured to use DNS for name resolution.

Configuration example Cloud Control OMS Servers provide HTTP or HTTPS access to a set of Cloud Control services, listed below, to the Cloud Control clients, including the Cloud Control console and Management Agents. When more than one Cloud Control OMS Server is deployed, the F5 BIG-IP system can load balance requests for each service via virtual servers, with the Cloud Control clients making service requests using a virtual host name.

Configuring the BIG-IP system for Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Use the following table for guidance on configuring the BIG-IP system for Oracle Enterprise Manager. This table contains any non-default setting you should configure as a part of this deployment. Settings not contained in the table can be configured as applicable. For specific instructions on configuring individual objects, see the online help or product manuals.

Health Monitors Note: There are two entries for both the Secure Console and the Unsecure Console services. Configuration of these monitors differs depending on whether SSO has been configured for Enterprise Manager authentication. Only one monitor needs to be configured for each service, choose the relevant one for your environment. To create a monitor, on the Main tab, expand Local Traffic, and then click Monitors. Click the Create button. After choosing the monitor type, from the Configuration list, select Advanced. Cloud Control Service
