Hello my customer is using inventory by scanner to collect all the installed sw. There is a general issue when trying to use the results of this discovery to support the "licensing" investigations.
I run in this kind of issuewhen trying to define a report for Oracle DBs (racs standalone etc...) . It is a nightmare to identify which are the key installed sw components to define that in one server i m potentially consuming a license.
Customer is going to ask reports like :
give me all the servers with Oracle Db installed
giveme all the server with SQL server installed
give me ....with SAP installed .....
We are not experts on which are the exact packages to filter and there is a strong need of such reports because after having a correct report then some investigations on licenses compliancy can be done. Without this kind of reports we as PS are stuck.
Please do not tell me to use Oracle license compliancy... etc... i know we have it but this requires admin priviledge in the agent (and thisis ugly , why not enabling it with sudo i do not undderstand....)
To sum up we need for the most common commercial products the kind of reports i mentioned above.
Otherwise very difficult to conduct license compliancy investigations and optimizations ( one reason of having ucmdb)
Please let me know your ideas here
