Some Security Compliance Violations are not Generated in Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control - oracle_security_inst Collection Fails to Run (Doc ID 1623527.1)

Last updated on MAY 16, 2014

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version 12.1.0.1.0 to 12.1.0.5.0 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Certain security violations are reported as non-compliant in Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control.  But other security violations (which are expected) are not flagged as non-compliant.

When running the metric collections which collect the underlying data for the security compliances manually, it can be seen that oracle_security is able to collect and upload successfully.   However oracle_security_inst gives the following error:-

[oracle@machine1 ~]$ emctl control agent runCollection orcl:oracle_database oracle_security_inst

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 3

---------------------------------------------------------------
EMD runCollection error:
oracle_security_inst:Could not send some or all data over to repository: Failed to upload file: uploadXMLFiles skipped :: OMS version not checked yet. If this issue persists check trace files for ping to OMS related errors. (TIMEOUT)

Tip:

Use the following syntax to run the collections manually

emctl control agent runCollection <dbname>:oracle_database oracle_security

emctl control agent runCollection <dbname>:oracle_database oracle_security_inst

 

The .../gc_inst/em/EMGC_OMS1/sysman/log/emoms.log contains a similar error message:

2014-01-14 14:42:41,397 [44459:GC.OnDemand.6 (oracle_database:orcl:Real-time collection oracle_security_inst)] ERROR - Collection item result upload failure oracle_database.orcl::oracle_security_inst
