Inventory Pack for Servers

Issue/Introduction

Inventory Pack for Servers is a separate product with a separate license. It runs on top of Inventory Solution and uses the Inventory Pack for Servers Plug-in. Inventory Pack for Servers is part of the Server Management Suite. You can use different methods to gather inventory data about server-class software that is installed on servers.

Oracle 12 is not a part of Inventory Pack for Servers.

The officially supported versions are:
-Oracle Database 9i (Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition)
-Oracle Database 10g (Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, Standard Edition One)

Therefore it is not possible to populate "Database System" data class with installed Oracle instances (more information about the data class http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/inventory-database-schema-75-part-7-inventory-pack-servers-database-and-web).

More information about 7.6 branch read here http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC7976 , page 100 or about 8.0 branch read here http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC8636 , page 13.

More information about the data class http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/inventory-database-schema-75-part-7-inventory-pack-servers-database-and-web.


NB! The ability to collect instances does not imply full and official Oracle 12 support in context of Server Management Suite 7.6 or 8.0 by Symantec.
 

No errors.
