Summary

Gathering inventory from Oracle VM Manager may fail if an Oracle VM server is not a member of a server pool.

Symptoms

A symptom of this problem occurring is a generic generic failure result appearing in inventory rule status files similar to the following:

<TaskStatus Result="Failed" StartDateTime="2021-09-22T15:52:35" Type="OracleVMInventory" Status="OVMManagerInventoryFailed" Duration="8.09"/>

Be aware that a generic failure like this may also be a symptom of a different problem - this result is not specific to this issue.

Cause

The Oracle VM Manager inventory gathering process expects that all servers are a member of a server pool, and aborts the gathering inventory process with a failure if a server without a server is found without a server pool.

Resolution

If you believe this issue may be affecting you, contact Flexera Support to enquire about the availability of a hotfix or workaround suitable for your environment.

Additional details

When this issue occurs, tracing such as the following is produced when running the problematic Oracle VM Manager inventory gathering operation with the +Scheduling/RemoteExecution trace class enabled through etdp.trace configuration:

2021-09-22 05:52:41.856Z, pid 12956, thread 8716 (Scheduling/RemoteExecution/Common): Collecting inventory from OVM Manager host '10.68.240.64' with account 'OVM inventory account'
