Transcript:

Hi, there I’m Fredrik Filipsson at Redress Compliance. In this video, I’m talking about ULA data collection, but also why you cannot trust verified by Oracle SAM tools. I hope you like the video. Please subscribe, please like, and enjoy the video. Steps to take: identify where do you have Oracle software running. Normally our clients or companies know where it is installed. You have existing inventory tools. If you have an Oracle database running, usually it’s picked up by inventory tools or SAM tools, and if you know there’s an Oracle database running, you know that you can run the Oracle audit scripts on those environments. Remember you need to cover all environments, production, test, development, DLR, service, that they’re shut off. For example, need to be taken into account as well, don’t only count the production servers, I recommend that you use the LMS scripts, have them from Oracle services.

Providers have them. You might have them already from Oracle since before, expert firms like us, we have developed our own or just Oracle tools. There’s many options for you. We just think that… Don’t use a verified SAM tool verified by Oracle. In the verification process, when a SAM tool is being verified by Oracle, nowhere in the process is Oracle verifying the SAM tools capability or measuring their licensing requirements. The other thing that is part of the process is that Oracle gives the SAM tool vendor, “Here’s our scripts. Can your tool run it on the servers and provide us with the output?” And the output is in the same format as we would do it. There’s no test where Oracle is checking if Flexera or anyone else understands what are the licensing requirements. It’s not part of the verification process, and that’s why you should be using the scripts and not the SAM tools. While if you have the SAM tools are verified by Oracle, they do have the role grip output underneath for database that made it work, so they’re not completely useless. They are very good because then you can just take the raw data or the needs of tool and analyze it, understanding what are the licensing requirements. If you liked the video, please subscribe.
