Using MAP on networks with AIX and Oracle


  • Im new to MAP. We have an environment with Windows and AIX hosts which i want to use MAP on. I see plenty of references to MAP being compatable with Linux and even HP-UX.  But will it also discover AIX hosts too?  In particular, Oracle databases on AIX?  Thanks!!

  • Some distros of Linux and HP-UX for UNIX are what is supported, but it may be possible for MAP to inventory AIX, but no guarantees. For Oracle, when MAP inventories a Linux/UNIX machine, it queries for the RPM and DPKG installations then looks for ‘Oracle’ in the vendor attribute. Any application that is not listed in either of those queries is not discovered by MAP.

    Therefore, if Oracle was installed by some other means then it is unlikely to be discovered through this method. Admittedly, I have almost no knowledge of how these services work and if they register software or something else.

  • I'm just bringing this up again as I have the same inquiry. We have quite a few AIX machines and just wondering if MAP has the ability to scan these machines. I am getting SSH Status successful for them; but nothing else is being shown on the reports other than OS "Unknown UNIX"
