How to run the RefreshFromMetalink job with OEM Database Control?

When trying to search for patches through the Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control utility on an Oracle installation on Windows Server 2003 R2, I receive the following error:

Error occurred searching for patches - Failed to find the release name specified. Possible reasons include, the release name is invalid, there are no patches for the specified release in Oracle Metalink, or the RefreshFromMetalink job needs to be run. To obtain the latest patch releases from Oracle Metalink, run the RefreshFromMetalink job.

Ok, great.  Problem is that I can't figure out how to run that job through the OEM Database Control.  I find instructions online easily enough (such as those found here:  http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/oem/pdf/patching_r2.pdf), but they only apply to Grid Control, not to Database Control.  

So, anybody have instructions for running that job within Database Control instead?  Thanks.
