Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports Oracle Management Agent (OMA) version 13.5 for Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Cloud Control 13c Release 5 in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, and the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet.

OEM 13c offers web-based tools to monitor and manage your Oracle databases. Amazon RDS for Oracle installs OMA, which then communicates with your Oracle Management Service (OMS) to provide monitoring information. Customers running OMS 13.5 can now manage databases by installing OMA 13.5.

To enable the version 13.5 of Oracle Management Agent (OMA) for OEM 13cR5, navigate to "Option Groups" in the Amazon Web Services Management Console and add the "OEM_AGENT" option to a new or existing option group and set AGENT_VERSION to “”. You will also need to configure option settings including OMS hostname (or IP), port and agent registration password to allow OMA on your Amazon RDS for Oracle database instances to communicate with your existing Oracle Management Service (OMS) stack. To learn more about enabling OEM 13c, please refer to Amazon RDS for Oracle documentation.

Amazon RDS for Oracle makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale Oracle Database deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for Oracle Database Pricing for regional availability.
