How do you configure OEM Manually after oracle 10g database creation could not configure the OEM

I just installed oracle 10g in linux and used OUI  to create a database, but the database creation did not complete successfully, indicating that the OEM could not be configured and needed to be configured manually;
The error reads as follow:
Error starting Database control.
Refer to the log file at ' ORACLE_HOME/cfgtoollogs/dbca/SID/emconfig.log '  for more detials
1.the question is how do you configure the database manually with Enterprise Manager by running the following script at said location
ORACLE_HOME/bin/emca script.
2. Why did this happen and how can it be prevented.
Thank you

First a little clarification:  Enterprise Manager is now Grid Control.  I'm going to guess you are really after dbConsole which is a single instance version loaded directly into the instance you want to work with.

1:  There are tons of links out there on manually creating and dropping dbconsole that can explain it better than I can here.  If you have specific questions about any of the steps ask and I'll try to help.

2:  A lot of things might have happened.  Depending on your exact Oracle version, it might be a glitch/feature/bug.  The installer hiccups a lot from time to time.

What did the log say caused it to stop?

I think this got to do the IP addresses , it should be static or dynamic and am confuse on that. The
database creation it self was successful, but to be able use OEM or db console , the OEM console starts automatically and when is completed it provides you with a URL.
In my case the console did not start and require me to manually configure using script from the location it stated earlier. I will check the link you provided for more help. Thanks though .

Oracle really likes static IP addresses for it's products.

If this is a local development/test instance, you can use the localhost/loopback ip of
