List INMEMORY Segments


Only for Oracle ERP System

  • applsys.fnd_app_servers
  • applsys.fnd_nodes
  • applsys.fnd_product_installations
  • applsys.fnd_application_tl
  • applsys.fnd_responsibility

  • apps.fnd_user_resp_groups


Multitenant System

A credential needs to be created which has the required prefix added to its name in order for the service account to see the systems containers during any inventory scan. 

By default, this prefix is C##, which means that if the Inventory-User (example: RVUser) is being used, then the credential needs to be created as C##RVUser. 

If the system has been configured with a common_user_prefix value, then that prefix should be used instead of the default one. 


Script Templates to Grant Permissions for a Zero Touch Inventory of Oracle Databases

There are two different script templates available that can be used to grant the necessary permissions.

  1. create_user_1.5.5.0_oldformat.sql - This is a simple script without any error checking. The script simply tries to authorize all tables for the given user.  The multitenant prefix user will need to be specified within this script. 
  2. create_user_1.5.5.0.sql - This script checks the output and is the script which is recommended by Raynet. 
    • The script is checking if a Container User is needed (C##).
    • If it is not (C##), the script reads the container sign for the user.
    • If the user does not exist, the script creates the user.
    • If the user does exist, the script releases the user and sets the password.
    • The script sets the rights for the existing tables, in order to avoid any error messages.

The templates for all scripts can be found as attachments underneath this article.

Please keep in mind that you will need to check the scripts if they can be applied to your environment! These are templates and modifications may be needed!



In rare cases when the hostname of Oracle database inventory does not match the inventory of the operating system, RayVentory cannot manage the link between both inventories automatically. This situation could be indicated by:

1. The server inventory exists when viewing the Inventory report, but ...

2. Oracle Server overview report does not show a link to the server inventory and the column "Status" shows "No Hardware Inventory"

For these cases the IP-Address used by the Oracle database service could solve the problem.


- use OraTrack XML version 1.5.9 or later

- apply a change of the OracleDB ACL by using the attached sample "set_user_acl12.sql";
   if other OracleDB versions are used, contact Raynet support please.


Attached File

  • set_user_acl12.sql
  • create_user_1.5.8.sql
  • create_user_1.5.6.0_oldformat.sql
