This request is related to the Oracle inventory. This is a request to enhance the scanner to be able to get the list of the oraInventory from a file.
This is needed when then is no unique central inventory but multiple oraInventory in case the Oracle installations on a same server are fully separated from each others and Oracle not necessarily installed via the Oracle Universal Installer.

  • Oracle Databases aren't inventoried on my servers, because of the limit of the actual recognition mechanism...
    I really need an update for this.

  • This feature could be very usefull.

    The central inventory is not very suitable. Because we don't want a common filesystem or file for différents oracle databases on our servers. If there's a mistake, we can crash all the databases.

    It will be more suitable to have a different inventoy for this installed software, which parse a specific file, giving a list of inventories. Or which parse the appropriate content into all 'oraInventory' folders.

    I vote FOR this idea!
