Managing the Oracle Forms Server

The eG Enterprise is capable of automatically discovering the Oracle Forms Server. The discovered firewall needs to be managed for monitoring. This can be achieved using the following steps;

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. If a Oracle Forms Server is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage).
  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the component manually using the COMPONENTSpage (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Discovered components, however, are managed using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE / UNMANAGEpage.Figure 1 and Figure 2 clearly illustrate the process of managing the Oracle Forms Server.

  4. Next, try to sign out of the eG administrative interface. Upon doing so, a list of unconfigured tests  will appear prompting you to configure the tests pertaining to the Oracle Forms server.

  5. Click on the test names to configure. To know how to configure the tests, refer to Monitoring Oracle Forms Servers chapter.
  6. Finally, signout of the eG administrative interface.
