Removing Database Control (dbconsole) from a database
Oracle Database 10g introduced Database Control (dbconsole) to aid in day to day administration tasks and monitoring. When building a database for use as a repository for Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control or the recently released Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c, you will need to remove Database Control and its associated repository from the database.
This document will detail the steps to remove Database Control from Oracle Enterprise 11gR2 database on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5.
Using the Enterprise Manager Configuration Assistant (EMCA) pass the
deconfig dbcontrol db command with the
–repos drop option. If you are removing Database Control from a RAC database add the
–cluster option. You will need to provide the database SID, listener port number and passwords for both the SYS and SYSTEM user.
