I am trying to login into OEM, but getting an error.
vtk1000: Unable to connect to the management server (hostname). please verify that you have entered the correct host name and the status of the Oracle management Server.
Than I tried to check the status of the Oracle Management server.

start -> programs -> Administrative tools -> services.
Double click it ,but I couldn't see any entry for Oracle Management Server .

What does that mean?

OMS is three tier architecture; do you have an installed OMS?
Which version of Oracle are you using?

There are few different products that you can use to manage your database:
1) Enterprise manager GUI console:

This only requires you to have an oracle client and a server. (No OMS required)

2) DB Console: Comes with 10g and can be used to manage 1 database only.

3) Grid control/OMS: used to manage multiple databases, requires a separate OMS/Grid control server and an intelligent agent running on the databases you manage.

Thanks for quick response.

I have Oracle 8i as plus as Oracle 9i , but I'm not sure about the installation of OMS.
How I can I check it.

Sounds like you need to start OMS:

run this command: emctl start oms

When i entered emctl start oms, got an error:
'emctl' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Smurti1: Were you the one who installed this system, or you inherited it from some other DBA ?

It is possible that you don't have OMS installed, to check that you could startup OUI and look at the installed products.

You could also do a global find of emctl, generally it is available under $ORACLE_HOME/bin

dir emct*.* /s

OMS would have a seperate oracle home as opposed to your database oracle_home.

This means that most probably you don't have OMS installed although there is still a possibility that it is installed on some other host.

You can either install OMS ( it is somewhat complex process, and managing the management server, takes quite a bit of effort)
or use some other tools like Enterprise manager GUI to manage your database.
