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 to [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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
Copyright (c) 1996, 2013 Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.
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)


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$UploadOnDemandException: Could not send some or all data over to repository: Failed to upload file: xferFile failed with INVALID_CONFIG (TIMEOUT)
