Control Compliance Suite data collection support for Oracle Database 12c multitenant architecture
Last Updated March 08, 2019
The new Oracle Database 12c multitenant architecture enables you to create a number of virtual databases called as pluggable databases (PDB) in a single physical database called as container database (CDB). A PDB contains schemas, schema objects, and non-schema objects, which appears to an Oracle Net client as a non-CDB. This architecture enables secure isolation of the database along with the management of many databases as one.
Symantec Control Compliance Suite (CCS) supports the Oracle Database 12c multitenant architecture. Data for both the CDBs and PDBs is collected in CCS. You can import your CDB Oracle assets in the CCS asset system by running the Asset Import job, and then perform data collection and evaluation on these assets. For detailed information about importing assets to CCS, see Importing assets.
You cannot import PDB Oracle assets by running the Asset Import job. You have to add the PDB assets manually by using the CSV or the ODBC asset import functionality. For detailed information about adding assets, see Adding assets.
Consider the following points while adding PDB assets to CCS:
Asset attributes such as Database Name Type, Database Version, Operating System, and OS Type are required to be updated for successful data collection.
The Database Name Type asset property must be updated to Service Name, and not as a System ID (SID).
After you make these settings, Oracle assets for PDBs are imported successfully. The data collection-evaluation-reporting workflow for these assets is similar to other platforms.
