Databases Tab

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)
This tab displays the database properties of the discovered device. It indicates the type of database, database listeners, and database services installed on the discovered device. The page has the following database options:
  • This device is running SQL Server software — Indicates that the discovered computer is running MS SQL Server database.
  • This device is running Oracle software — Indicates that the discovered device is running Oracle Database.
    Tip: If this discovered device record has been automatically created from information imported by the Amazon connector, and represents a 'device' (virtual instance) in Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) that is running Oracle Database, this check box is automatically selected.
    When you select the This device is running Oracle software option (or when it is automatically selected), FlexNet Manager Suite displays the details of Oracle listeners and Oracle services. For installations on-premises (for example, in your own data center), you can enter details for new listeners and services to connect to Oracle Database installations – select either parent row, such as Listeners, to enable the creation button, such as Create a listener. (For discovered devices automatically created for Amazon RDS, do not alter the listener/service details.)
    Important: In most cases, the listener and service details provided in the manually-created discovered device record are overwritten by the actual values discovered by the inventory process. However, there can be some special cases when the inventory process could not get the correct listener details and may retain the manually-entered listener details of the discovered device. In such cases, a successful connection to Oracle Database depends on the correctness of the listener and service details. You must contact your Oracle administrators to get the correct listener and services details while creating a discovered device manually.

The following discovered device properties are available (listed alphabetically) on this tab.

Table 1. Databases tab details
Field Description

This column displays the existing Oracle listeners and services. It also enables you to create new listeners and services.

Specifies the name of the listener that the FlexNet Beacon service uses to connect to the Oracle devices during remote inventory collection. You can configure FlexNet Manager Suite to collect Oracle inventory using the inventory beacon service by selecting the Oracle Database discovery and inventory options on the Actions page. To collect inventory using the FlexNet Beacon service, the inventory beacon password store must contain the passwords for all Oracle Database installations from which this inventory beacon collects inventory. For more information about the password store, see Using Password Manager.
Note: You can use this inventory collection method when the Oracle administrator has disabled the Oracle local operating system authentication, which restricts the ability of the FlexNet inventory agent to connect to the Oracle server for inventory collection.

See Creating Listeners and Services

Specifies the name of the Oracle services available for Oracle listeners. The remote execution tasks can only connect to the services that are listed for a device.

See Creating Listeners and Services


Specifies the port number used by the database listener service.


Specifies the version of the database listener or service installed on the discovered device.
