Universal Discovery - Issue with inventory of Oracle Database

0 Votes

Actually, the inventory of Oracle Database is based exclusively on the OraInst.loc file.
This file is generated by Oracle Universal Installer.
But:
- The oldest version of Oracle Database, Oracle8g, could not installed with Oracle Universal Discovery. Therefore, this version of the InstalledSoftware can not be inventoried, even if present in Zsai.
- Oracle Database can be installed without Oracle Universal Installer. Therefore, these softwares can not be inventoried.

It's really important to have an real inventory for this software.
Can you add some discovery with files and/or package for this InstalledSoftware?

Furthermore, we can find several versions of Oracle DataBase on the same server.
But there's can be only one ORACLE_HOME in OraInst.loc.

How can we invent these different versions of ORACLE Database ?

Can I assume you're referring to installations on Linux, or are you referring to both Linux and Windows deployments?
