This task describes the pre-configuration steps to be performed by the ALM administrator which allow the performance tester to enable and run Oracle 11i diagnostics.
Note: This task is part of a higher-level task. For details, see How to Work with Lab Management Administration.
Consider this before connecting to a UNIX server with a remote shell (RSH/RCP) connection
Verify that the RSH and RCP daemons are running on the UNIX server.
Verify that the UNIX user has permission to run remote shell commands. To check this, type the following at the DOS command prompt:
rsh <server machine name> -l <UNIX user login name> -n <command>
rsh my_unix -l my_name -n "cd ~;pwd"
Note: You can only use RSH commands that work from the DOS command prompt window.
Verify that no output is generated after executing the RSH command.
Note: You should not generate output from the .login, .profile, and .cshrc files (for example, by echo, or in any other way, including commands that generate output indirectly, such as biff). Where an existing user generates output in the RSH step that cannot be deleted, you should create a new user that does not generate output, and who has permissions to run RSH and RCP commands on the server machine.
Set or disable the Oracle server diagnostics password - optional
To help ALM deal with the Oracle server diagnostics password, you can either set the password in the Vuser script, or you can disable the password request on the server itself. For task details, see How to Set and Disable the Oracle Server Diagnostics Password.
