Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM)
and Oracle Auto Service Request (ASR)
for Oracle Solaris 10


 Oracle Solaris Configuration Reporting

The ability for Oracle Solaris to report configuration information about the operating system and hardware has been offered since Solaris 10 8/07. The increasing importance of understanding customer environments to develop better service and support programs has necessitated a change in the way this data is collected.

Oracle Configuration Manager

Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) replaced Oracle Auto Registration (see below) with the changeover beginning in Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 where Auto Registration was the default and OCM was disabled. Commencing with Oracle Solaris 10 1/13, OCM was enabled by default and the Auto Registration service was dropped. Administrators can choose to either register to OCM using My Oracle Support credentials or register anonymously. It is also possible to disable reporting so no data is sent back to Oracle.

For the type of information collected, see Hosts Collection in the Oracle Configuration Manager Collection.

The chapter, "Working with Oracle Configuration Manager", describes enabling/disabling the data collection service. It can be found in the Oracle Solaris Administration: Basic Administration manual.

For JumpStart information about setting up OCM on an Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 server, see the chapter "Setting Up Oracle Configuration Manager and Oracle Auto Service Request" in Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Installation Guide: Network-Based Installations.

If you use your My Oracle Support credentials, you can learn more about OCM by clicking on the "Collector" tab after logging in to My Oracle Support.

Legacy Oracle Solaris 10 Auto Registration

Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 and Oracle Solaris 8/11, by default, reported anonymous configuration information to Oracle through the Auto Registration service. Auto Registration data collection servers at Oracle have been decommissioned.
