DO NOT import the updated pack that Mike Wallace posted - there are NDA rules that apply, especially if there are any remnants of the credentials still in this pack that absolutely does NOT work. The "updated" pack is terribly bugged, and possibly has hard-coded credentials for discoveries and monitors. I just spent 3 days on an issue that could have been easily avoided, if only I knew Mike Wallace had hard-coded the username and password into the pack.

I've seen other works by Mike Wallace, and can say with absolute confidence that you DO NOT want ANYTHING to do with ANYTHING that Mike Wallace produces...PERIOD. Don't even take a chance on it - you will waste a lot of time and be stuck with the expense.

I am not sure why Jonathan decided to attack me personally, but please be advised I did some updating on this MP to make it work with SCOM 2012, if it had errors in it it was still a work in progress and I would have appreciated the feedback if any where found. I actually posted the updated MP here at Jonathans urging

My comments were out of character for me, and there is no excuse for that - but I've been a little ruffled sifting through the updated pack. The pack also performs continuous logging on UNIX/Linux resource pool members, and the logs are filled with obscenities. This shows a lack of professionalism and pride in work, but it does not excuse my lack of professionalism in my comments - for that I do apologize.

Please do not use the updated pack, there are better ways to do this with the recently released Unix/Linux authoring MP. Consider this issue closed

Hi all,
I would like to use this MP to monitor Oracle DBs. I've read that I cannot use the XML posted above. So what I've to do to use this with SCOM 2012?
Thanks for your help.

Hi,
These MP's need to be re-written and reposted when I have some time. In the meantime you can gather all of the Oracle specfic commands you need to monitor Oracle and develop discoveries and monitors for them using the Unix/Linux Authoring Library found here: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/UNIXLinux-Authoring-b16fd2e4 They have a couple of good example MP's in there that you can base your's off of.

Thanks for your answer but what kind of issues I could have using the two xml posted above? You said that are working with SCOM 2012.

As Jonathan so eloquently mentioned above there are some user account issues(the user account used to run the oracle commands was hard coded into those commands instead of using a run as account) and maybe some other errors related to discovery and logging. You would probably be better off developing your own using examples from the MP I mentioned in my previous post based on your requirements for monitoring oracle
