To gather Oracle Database inventory from a beacon, you need the 32-bit version of Oracle Provider for OLE DB installed on your system. If this driver isn't installed, or if it's installed improperly, you will see errors in the trace level log files generated by the inventory beacon like the following:

(0,Error/Occurrence/Error/279/301): Error Occurrence (s279m301): Error 0x800a0e7a "Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed." occurred while attempting to access "XXXXX.Connection".

(Inventory/Oracle/Query): Unable to connect to DB

(Inventory/Oracle/SDK): Oracle OLEDB provider was not found. Error 0x800a0e7a

(0,Error/Occurrence/Error/421/200): Error Occurrence (s421m200): OLE DB provider for Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle is not installed

You may also see an error appear in the status message when viewing the Discovered Device Properties for an Inventory Device, such as the one below:
