Need to find all instances of Oracle Java on network
Oracle is going to charge our organization for every user (approximately 1200) if they find even a single instance of their Java software on our network.
How do I run a report in our KACE SMA to show me any current installs of Oracle published Java software? I have tried creating a few reports with the wizard but the keep coming up empty.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
There are multiple options to do so.
1. create report and check for the name correctly (what you likely did and no software is installed) you can verify it if you install one instance on one system
2. create a Custom Inventory Rule which can check a bit more deeply also for not installed runtimes ("stickware") like: ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c wmic product where "Name like 'Java%%'" get name,version)
