    Yes,

     

    GRID control installation is seperate from Oracle database installation.

    Google/Search SDN with key word "Grid control installation" for links, Oracle links are available.

      Thanks NIck,

       

      Could you please also differentiate Grid control and grid infrastructure.?

       

      From SNOTE 1431799 - oracle 11g software includes oracle gride, clusterware and asm..

       

      Best Regards,

        Hi,

        Bad if you do NOT know but you want to install Oracle enterprise manager GRID control.

        I assume that

        in addition to the RDBMS software (database software) Oracle provides you with additional software to do "other" things. In this case we talk about the clusterware.

        If you take a look at the documentation (you can also use google)

        http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/clusterware/overview/index-090666.html

        The clusterware allows the clustering of independent servers so they work as a single system =>needed for RAC (REAL APPLICATION CLUSTER) and ASM (AUTOMATIC STORAGE MANAGEMENT)

         

        The oracle defintion for "Grid computing" is

        a computing architecture that effectively pools large numbers of servers and storage into a flexible, on-demand resource for all enterprise computing needs.

         

        Do you see the relationship between "GRID" and "CLUSTERWARE"?

         

        Now you should have a little clear the "infraestructure part", to "monitor" this infraestructure you can use Oracle tools like Enterprise manager grid control

        Again, the oracle docuemtation sys it all:

        Enterprise Manager Grid Control is Oracle's single, integrated solution for managing all aspects of the Oracle Grid and the applications running on it. Enterprise Manager also allows you to manage single instances of Oracle Database, Application Server, or Collaboration Suite using standalone consoles.

         

        I also assume you are aware of the following (note 105047):

        • You can use Enterprise Manager Grid Control for monitoring purposes, but Oracle provides support (not SAP).
        • You cannot use Enterprise Manager Grid Control for other purposes (Note 828268).
