No, you can't disable tabs in 11g either.
As far as functionality goes... it's more of a 10.3 release. It's
right that there have been huge changes regarding the internal
architecture but that's invisible to you once it works. If you don't
use 11.2 databases, it's not really worth the upgrade from a
usability/functionality point of view in my opinion.
On the other hand you'll have to go weblogic with the next release
then anyway and nothing is known about upgrade paths from 10g to
12g/c, you'll possibly have to do both at one time then.
Can't say that 11g is more buggy than 10g and the upgrade path is not
that hard once you know which java and wls version to use and which
patches are needed. I personally did the upgrade twice in two
different companies and it was no problem.
Some very unordered thoughts there, sorry :)
Bottom line: I'm pretty undecided concerning the necessity of the
major release 11g, especially why the weblogic change had to happen
there already. But if you want to do the upgrade, you'll end up with a
system that's no less stable and the upgrade itself is very doable.

Have you used the Grid Control 11g yet? I plan to do an install soon to test
it out. I was concerned about it since it has a pretty big architecture
change (uses weblogic) and when oracle makes large changes to things, they
tend to be really buggy for a while. When I looked at installing it last
year on a previous project, I noticed I need 2-3 patches just to get through
install and decided not to bother.
How well does it work? So in 11g, I can disable the tabs?

I've been talking to some EM product managers about exactly that and
it was a requirement of the company I was working back then, out of
the same reasons you mention. Unfortunately, we were only told that
this might be implemented in future versions and that it indeed is on
But until 11.1 there is no supported possibility to hide tabs/sections.

I need to give access to grid control to some testers. I know how to set
a user where they only get access to certain databases and limit
They need access to the performance tab and there is an oracle note on
minimum DB privileges they need. So that is all done.
However, is there a way that I can remove extra tabs that they don't
access to do work on from being seen in their account? These are people
work for our client and are not local. This will make it simpler for
find what they need (even if I write instructions), and will lead to me
getting less calls about X is broke when it just says they don't have
privileges to perform the task.
