In OMO I can see ”Packs granted” and ”Packs agreed”. What is the difference?
OEM Pack Access Enabled (or Granted) does not mean that the pack is also used. Although the functionalities are accessible for the end users, it is possible that the customer has not used any of the packs. --> this is "granted"
OEM Pack Access Agreed means:- For 10g Database Control, it means that at least one user logged into OEM console, read the Licensing Information from the welcome screen, and clicked on “I Agree” button in order to access database console- For all the rest of 10g and later versions, it means that at least one user accessed the “Management Pack Access” page and changed the pack access checkboxes (all enabled by default) and clicked on the “Apply” button.Because of these reasons “pack access enabled and agreed” does not mean that the corresponding pack is in use.
Hi, sorry for the response to a so late threat but I got access to the Snow Community since few days.
Well, better later than never
About this topic, if the flag on "Pack Granted" and "Pack Agreed" are both present but, as stated in previous answer, this does not mean they are effectively in use or have been used, how can I tell the customer he has to pay or not for them ?
thanks a lot
Hi Davide, Oracle doesn't actually care if you have actively used the pack functionality, only if you have added the target in OEM and if you have agreed that this will require a license. This is what Snow shows. Oracle's position is: if you added a target for certain functionality such as diagnostic pack ("pack granted") and have agreed to the license statement ("Pack Agreed") you definitely need a license because you were intending to use the functionality. If you didn't actually use it doesn't matter; you could have used it. If you have only added the target, you may get away with it, but it is still a risk.
thanks for the quick and clear response, very useful.
No problem, welcome to the forum and happy to assist if you have any other Oracle related questions.
