Hi Tim, yes, you can use Grid Control to manage SE Target DBs - I had the same question a while back and hunted down the answer, but don't have any links handy and too busy to dig them up at the moment. Grid Control gives you the ability to enable/disable the management pack functionality for each target so you can turn it off to prevent users from clicking on things they shouldn't be. I installed GC and tested it out for a while and in the end decided it was more trouble than it was worth so I just stick with the stand-alone DB Console instead and only start it up and use it very rarely when I'm really desperate for a GUI for some reason. I manage all my scheduled tasks through cron and monitoring/alerting through very efficient and reliable scripts, which I guess qualifies me as what Oracle calls a "DBA 1.0" these days.
