Assign Beacon to Subnet

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

Before rules can take effect, inventory beacons must know their subnets.

It is a requirement for an operational system that your subnets are assigned to appropriate inventory beacons. This summary covers only making adjustment for the collection of Oracle inventory.

To assign subsets to an inventory beacon:

  1. In the web interface for IT Asset Management, navigate to Discovery & Inventory > Subnets (in the Network group).
    This page is populated with the sites and subnets in your enterprise after you have completed an import from Active Directory (for details, consult IT Asset Management Help > Inventory Beacons > Active Directory Page > Importing from Active Directory).
  2. Expand the appropriate site(s), using the + expander icon, until you can see the subnet that includes your Oracle Database servers.
    Tip: If the subnet does not yet appear in the listing, you can add its details manually. In the row for the appropriate site, click the + sign on the right-hand end, and enter the subnet IP address in the new row that appears.
  3. If the Beacon name column shows Unspecified, click the editing (pencil) icon at the right-hand end of this row.
    The row becomes editable. Beware of accidentally over-writing the IP address, which initially has focus.
  4. In the Beacon name column, use the drop-down list to choose the appropriate inventory beacon from the list of those registered so far; and click the blue disk icon on the right to save your change.
Your chosen inventory beacon is now authorized to work in the subnet that contains your Oracle Database servers. Now continue and create a rule that dictates what should happen within that subnet.
