Oracle install-based inventory
For Oracle, we recommend you check imported or manually created install-based inventory, especially the following:
•All Production, test and development environments are recorded (including standby and mirrored environments) as described in the below documents:
•CPU type, CPU count, and Cores per CPU must be recorded correctly.
•Ensure hyperthreading (if used) is recorded.
For soft-partitioned environments:
•Ensure Virtual Machine-to-Host and hypervisor relationships and data are recorded for all hypervisor virtualized environments (e.g. Xen Server, Hyper-V).
•Ensure vSphere ESX-to-vCenter relationships, editions and versions are recorded for VMware environments.
For hard-partitioned environments:
•Ensure that the correct partition types are specified.
•Ensure that data fields for partitions are populated.
Also see http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pricing/partitioning-070609.pdf for further information.
For cloud environments:
•Ensure you record where an Oracle “Authorized Cloud Environment” is being used and/or other cloud types. We recommend that separate business units are used for different cloud environments.
