Oracle usually can't be found in the typical places windows installs are found. Do you think there is any interest in add Oracle instance discovery to OA (besides myself or course)?

You can identify Oracle instances running on Windows in Services.msc because for each instance of Oracle, there is a unique oracle service installed.

Code:
Sub OracleInstances(StrComputer)
 
   Dim objLocator, objWMI
   Set objLocator = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
   Set objWMIService = objLocator.ConnectServer(strComputer,"root\cimv2",user,pass)
 
   Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Service WHERE DisplayName LIKE 'OracleService%'")
 
   For Each objItem In colItems
       str = objItem.DisplayName
       instance = Replace(str,"OracleService","")
 
     If objItem.Started = "True" Then
          WScript.Echo instance & " - Started"
     Else
          WScript.Echo instance & " - Not started"
     End If
 
     Next
 
 End Sub

Is it safe to conclude that nobody else is interested in discovering Oracle databases?

I am definitely interested in enumerating Oracle instances / databases for OAv2.
I'd like to get similar data to that currently retrieved for SQL Server.
MySQL is another I want to get info from, as well.

What platform are your Oracle instance running on ?

Are you thinking about querying them in a separate script and essentially ignoring the underlying OS ? I think that might be the best way to go... We could use the same method for other DB's as well.

Hi Mark- This is great news. We have some Oracle databases running on Windows and on Red Hat too. I noticed that there are a couple of 3rd party solutions to discover Oracle but overall it seems to be an oddball. Maybe it's possible to use nmap to scan an ip range and identify systems listening on port 1521 and 1523. This might work but won't help with non-standard listening ports.

If we audit the host that Oracle is running on, we should be able to determine ports...
Then it's just a matter of connecting (with appropriate credentials) and running a script to enumerate the databases. I already do this for SQL Server in OAv2. I plan to do Oracle, MySQL, Postgres and others, too...
