How to create Explorer report with Oracle Explominer Tools

What is Oracle Explorer?

The Oracle Explorer Data Collector is a collection of shell scripts and a few binary executable that gathers information and creates a detailed snapshot of a system’s configuration and state. Explorer output enables Oracle’s engineers to perform assessments of the system by applying the output against knowledge-based rules engine.

Oracle Explorer Data Collector is part of Oracle Services Tools Bundle (STB). As Explorer uses the Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) tool to collect part of its information and because RDA is part of the STB, it is highly advised to install the entire STB bundle.

For more information about Explorer and STB, go to > Oracle Explorer Data Collector Installation and Services Tools Bundle (STB) User’s Guide page.

– search sun – tools – explominer
– copy explominer.tar.gz to destination server
– after that please extract with “gzcat explominer.tar.gz|tar xvf –
– then go to directory ExploMiner
– then run explominer

There is difference script/package based on processor type:  i386, Sparc and x86 machine.

bash-3.00# pwd
/opt/explominer
bash-3.00# ls
explominer explominer.i386 explominer.sparc explominer.tar.gz explominer.x86
bash-3.00#

Create Explorer report:

Copy and extract the explorer output file and run explominer, below are the example:

/tmp/output/explorer.853c62da.server-2016.04.15.09.15 >>my explorer extract folder location

ExploMiner v2.11.6 EIS-CD 07/2013

usage: explominer.pl [-h]
explominer.pl [-f expdir] [-o outdir] [-e eisdir] [-c] [-m] [-r] [-i] [-a]

In the first form explominer.pl prints this help message.
In the second form explominer.pl performs the checks and writes the
results to output files.

arguments: none

options: -h print this help message
-f expdir
find explorer output in directory expdir
default: .
-o outdir
write output files to directory outdir
default: .
-e eisdir
compare the results of the patch analysis with the patchdiag.xref and patch.list files from the
EIS-CD found at eisdir and generate the file ExploMiner_EIS_Patchlist_user
-c generate the customer report file ExploMiner_CustomerReport.txt
-m analyze message files even if > 4MByte
-r calculate eOri
-i mention internal, proprietary information as well
-a show all FMA Cases

bash-3.00#

bash-3.00# ./explominer.x86 -f /tmp/output/explorer.853c62da.server-2016.04.15.09.15 -o /export/home/explominer_report -e /cdrom/eis-dvd/sun/patch/etc/ -c -m -r -i -a

NOTICE: ExploMiner does now also include the revision of patches included in the Solaris Recommended Patch Set (see “rps:”) in addition to the latest revision (see “current:”), and – if this revision is lower than the latest patch revision – the respective release date.

IMPORTANT: ExploMiner is primarily intended for reactive, break-fix support. It shows the latest revision (see “current”) or when it’s not installed (see “missing”) of any patch that is found to be relevant,
eventually preceded by the revision of that patch that is included in the Solaris Recommended Patch Set (see “rps”) from the day when ExploMiner was run.

Patches listed in its output might be relevant to any known issues, but their presence herein does not necessarily manifest a general patch recommendation.

ExploMiner is not primarily intended for proactive patch management!

IMPORTANT: Please note: Despite the instructions on MOS, some customers may have improperly loaded attachments into this system that contain electronic protected health information (ePHI). Should you encounter any ePHI, immediately delete all copies from this system and purge any local copies.
