Old version of Oracle database inventory

Hi all,

I'm facing problems about old version of oracle database inventory failure.

here are 8i, 9i which I would like to inventory through stand alone local agent but it shows wrong result. for examples, oracle 8i instance is running but oracle.ndi is reporting failure with the reason instance was discovered but not running when tried to inventory.

I just found out following which is related to oracle database inventory in the release note. I'm using FNMS 2019 R2 version agent.(14.0.0)

• 8i — requires a direct inventory beacon connection
• 9i — requires a named account on Windows or a direct inventory
beacon connection
• 12c — the Oracle Multitenant option is not supported using a local
agent.

anyone who can answer correctly?

Regards,

Re: Old version of Oracle database inventory

@gotqcorp - The release notes are correct.  The FlexNet Agent is not able to capture Oracle Database Inventory for these ancient versions of Oracle Database (8i and 9i).  You will need to use the legacy method of making a direct connection to the database from a Beacon.

Here is your own Community Post from May on this exact same topic where you were not able to gather Oracle Database Inventory using the agent for versions 8i and 9i.  This has information on how to capture Oracle Inventory directly from a beacon.

Re: Old version of Oracle database inventory

Hi Flexera, thank you for your answer,

some specific reason, it's not possible way through direct connection because host was isolated so can't reach out via direct connection.

I would like to know possible way such as old version of Flexera Agent or Manual LMS query script.

Any idea for support this host?

Re: Old version of Oracle database inventory

You may want to try out the stand-alone ORATRACK utility for this scenario.  This utility is basically supported "As Is".

Hi Flexera, thank you for your replying.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to use oratrack.
