IT Asset Management (Cloud)

Command line | Registry

OracleInventoryAsSysdba applies on UNIX-like platforms only. It modifies the command line used for the Oracle utility sqlplus during inventory gathering, allowing use of a custom account name.
Tip: This preference only controls the command line to be used in the event that gathering Oracle inventory is permitted by other preferences:
The effect of OracleInventoryAsSysdba is:
  • When OracleInventoryAsSysdba=True (or when the value is not specified), the inventory component (ndtrack) uses the following command to access the Oracle Database for inventory gathering:
    sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
  • When OracleInventoryAsSysdba=False, the inventory component (ndtrack) uses the following:
    sqlplus "/ " 
    Notice the trailing white space in this case.
Tip: When OracleInventoryAsSysdba=False, it is mandatory to set an account name, using OracleInventoryUser (see OracleInventoryUser).
