EM: CPU chart Error: Invalid BoundDataSource: no class, method or dataSource provided.

Error:

CPU_Chart

Also no other tabs are available to click.

Reason:

One of the reason could be that you converted single instance database to RAC.

or you created EM repository without indicating -cluster option.

run:

emca -config dbcontrol db -repos recreate -cluster

answer the questions carefully 🙂

My settings:

You have specified the following settings

Database ORACLE_HOME ……………. /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1

Database instance hostname ……………. Listener ORACLE_HOME ……………. /u01/app/11.2.0/grid
Listener port number ……………. 1521

Recreate Oracle 11g OEM DBConsole manually for RAC

If you have problems with existing OEM, the best way is to reconfigure it. Here are the steps, how to do it correctly:

$ emca -config dbcontrol db -repos recreate -cluster
