OUAF DBMS Scheduler Setup (4.2.x, 4.3.x)

1. Package USER_LOCK must be installed before running this script.
That can typically be done by executing @?/rdbms/admin/userlock.sql
2. The schema owner (e.g. CISADM) must have "create user" permission.

Hit enter to start
Enter database service (SID) name: ORMB
Enter schema owner [CISADM]: cisadm
Enter password for user cisadm: xxxxxx
Connecting to cisadm@ORMB ...
Validating user cisadm
Checking USER_LOCK package
Enter scheduler user name [SCHADM]: schadm
User SCHADM does not exist and will be created
Enter password for user SCHADM:
Confirm password for user SCHADM: xxxxxx
Enter default tablespace [CISTS_01]: CISADM
Enter temp tablespace [TEMP]:
Creating user SCHADM
Connecting to SCHADM@ORMB ...

The email server, recipient and sender addresses are required for email
notifications when threads end in error and the thread_notifications
option is in effect. These values can be set here or the defaults
can be accepted and then modified by connecting to user SCHADM and:
a) running statement "DBMS_SCHEDULER.set_scheduler_attribute(...)" to
change the email server and
b) editing scheduler job OUAF_NOTIFY and changing its email notification

Enter email server name []:
Enter email recipient address []:
Enter email sender address []:
Use OEM_NOTIFY for thread errors (Y/N)? [N]: Y
Job OEM_NOTIFY will be used for thread error notifications
