I am at a customer running Standard Edition One (Oracle Database 11g Release 22.214.171.124.0 - 64bit Production).
They would like to install the Oracle Scheduler Agent on a remote non-database host and use it to run shell scripts.
This posting (Re: OracleJobScheduler remote database indicates that special licensing is required, but a review of the September 26th 2012 Oracle Technology Global Price List does not show the product referenced in the forum post. That said, I do see "System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Middleware"...which doesn't sound exactly right.
Does anyone know if special licensing is still required to install the Oracle Scheduler Agent on remote non-database hosts?
Yes, good advice and I have now done so.
It is appears that special licensing is required for the usage I described: "System Monitoring Plug-in for Hosts". Unfortunately, there is no product with exactly that name in the 9/26/2012 price list, but I did find "System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Middleware" and have asked for a little more clarification from Oracle.
Thanks for your input!
