Oracle Discovery and Inventory

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Discovery and inventory information is a prerequisite for performing license compliance calculations in FlexNet Manager Suite. In addition to the general inventory collection features, FlexNet Manager Suite also offers specialized features for Oracle inventory collection. With a detailed description of each of the supported methods, this chapter may help you in deciding and implementing the appropriate inventory collection method for Oracle systems in your computing estate.

The chapter begins with introductory topics comparing the different approaches to help you choose between them.

These are followed by a section covering each approach, each of which includes these parts:
  1. The first topic introducing each section lists the prerequisites required for that approach
  2. Then the credentials (accounts and privileges) required for that approach are listed in detail
  3. There is a topic detailing how the particular approach operates
  4. Finally, troubleshooting that applies to the particular approach is covered.
The concept is that, using the introductory topics, you will choose just one approach that best fits your needs, and then read only the one related section to drill into detail, without needing to work through the variations for the other approaches. This separation should reduce possible confusion about the differences between the approaches.

To reduce cross-linking, each section repeats the content that is common to other approaches, so that reading only your chosen one section gives you complete coverage. You will not miss anything by skipping over the sections that are not relevant to your approach.

The chapter concludes with a number of appendices of less commonly required details that are (in general) common to all approaches.
