Does the Prerequisite script for Exadata Discovery use the Wrong domainname command? It uses domainname, should it be using dnsdomainname?
The script is found in this MOS note: Prerequisite script for Exadata Discovery in Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c [ID 1473912.1]
My System administrator wrote "what the precheck script says it is watching out for, is NOT what it’s checking, and what it is checking is NOT needed.
They say they need the “domain name” to be set, but what they’re checking is the NIS domain name. This is echoed in the man page for “domainname” …
The man page even has a warning NOT to use “domainname” to check the DNS domain"
So is the pre-check script wrong, or is the running OEM/agents/discoverer going to look for the apparently doaminname set value within a NIS construct?
The sysadmins are trying to avoid having anything set with NIS, for fear it confuses a new admin or consultant.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts. -- Shaun
PS, if it is wrong, how do we get it corrected with Oracle?
The response to the remark explains that we are testing this in our internal environment. We have found one issue with this check. The NOTE authors plan to upload the new version of the script when the updated script is fully tested.
