Target Types in Oracle EM Cloud Control 12c

So often when issuing a emctl (Enterprise Manager Command Line Utility) command, one needs to specify a target type. This is often the case when the command affects a certain target (for example emctl reload agent dynamicproperties ...).

The most often used target types are the following:

  • oracle_database (Oracle Instance)
  • oracle_emd (Agent)
  • host (Host Machine)

However, there are a lot of other target types available. We can get all available target types for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c if we query the SYSMAN.EM_TARGET_TYPES table in the Enterprise manager repository:
