Query Management Pack Acess from OMR in Enterprise Manager 13c

Like most of Oracle’s products, Enterprise Manager comes with options that are enabled by default, but licensed when used. In order to prevent these options from being used and to avoid having to pay the corresponding license fee, your company may ask you to list the status of these options on a regular basis.

On Oracle Enterprise Manager, these options are called “Management Packs” :

  • Oracle Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Database
  • Oracle Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Fusion Middleware
  • Application Replay Pack
  • Management Pack for Oracle Coherence
  • Database Diagnostics Pack
  • Oracle Database Lifecycle Management Pack
  • Oracle Data Masking and Subsetting Pack
  • Database Tuning Pack
  • Configuration Management Pack for Applications
  • WLS Management Pack EE

Recently, my client asked me to automate the collection of the status of these management packs. The information is easily retrievable from the Enterprise Manager console (Setup=>Management Packs=>Management Pack Access), but there is no possibility to export the list to Microsoft Excel for example, which is not practical to include in a reporting.

After some research, I developed a query that extracts this information from the OMR database in CSV format.

First of all: the query is not very “pretty”, but the way the Management Pack information is stored in the OMR database does not allow to do better (if you have a better solution, I am interested 🙂 )

In order to execute the query, you need to connect to the OMR database with the SYSMAN user, or another user that has access to the objects in this schema. Then you just have to execute the following query (it’s better to copy it in a sql file and then execute the file from sqlplus in order to get a correct formatting) :

The first “select” statement is only used to generate the column headers. The second “select” will retrieve the list of targets present on your Enterprise Manager repository, and for each of them, check which Management Pack is activated. You will get: “E” if the management pack is enabled, “D” if it is disabled, or “NA” if not applicable for the target type.

Note: the query will not tell you if the Management Pack has been used or not! I could not find this information in Enterprise Manager.

Fortunately, if you want to disable these management packs, the operation is easily done from the console using the “Pack Based Batch Update” option:

You can also use the “Auto Licensing” option in order to automatically disable the management packs for targets you will later add to Enterprise Manager.

I hope you find this post useful. Stay tuned for more DBA stuff!
