Goal

This note will show how to see the configuration information for a host that is not being displayed in Grid Control.

Deactivating the Configuration Management Pack for Non-Oracle Systems option at the host level only prevents access to the Configuration Management Pack pages at the host level.  However, you can still access the Configuration Management Pack pages at the database level.

Conversely, if you activate the Configuration Management Pack for Non-Oracle Systems at the host level, you can access the Configuration Management Pack pages at the host level, even though the Configuration Management Pack option is deactivated at the database level.


Both Host and Database targets are independent licensable products.  As such, they each have their own set of management packs.

Host Configuration Management Pack related pages require the "Configuration Management Pack for Non-Oracle Systems" for the said host,

and

Database Configuration Management Pack related pages require the "Database Configuration Management Pack" for the said database.

The  confusion stems from the fact that we have a host configuration management pack (named 'Configuration Management Pack for Non-Oracle systems') and a Database configuration management pack. The Database Configuration Management pack should allow access to host configuration details for the host that the Database is installed on, but it doesn't because the Grid Control Graphical User Interface is coded to restrict host configuration details based on having the host configuration management pack.
