I'm finally entering the 20th century and playing round with OEM Grid Control. Version I'm running: 10.2.0.3.
Running Oracle on Windows:
1: What are the proper file permissions/owner to avoid the policy violation:
Policy Violation Details: Server Parameter File Permission(Windows)
The description says only the owner of the Oracle software and the DBA group should have access. I believe I've done this and the 2 users it mentions in the violation are: (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM TEST-DB1\ora_dba). I'll give you 2 guesses who owns all the software...
2: Short of setting the policy collection through OEM to run every couple of minutes, how do I run it manually? The default is to run every 24 hours and while I'm playing with permissions I'd like to force another check. The only work-around I've found is to tweak the default of once a day and tell it to run every couple minutes. There has to be a better way.
