I wouldn't be surprised. The RDA gathers feature usage information and I think it will be just a matter of time until the issue of license compliance begins to exist when submitting SRs.

The question really is - will Oracle would use the information gathered as part of license compliance and enforcement.

This config manager also comes part of the GC agent in, so when you install or upgrade the agent, it install itself (but you can choose to configure it or not)

We had the similar kind of experience and the worst part is that whenever the request handler Engr. changes, he request for whole information instead of reading the thread from the beginning.

We are also planning to have a test on the dev. servers.

Unfortunately, an experience I've had more than once is that even if you provide RDA output, they still ask you for information that they already have in the RDA because they don't take the time to look it up in the RDA, so it doesn't seem to eliminate that back and forth period for me. Even worse, they often ask me for information that I already provided in the SR itself, so sometimes it seems that they only read the subject of an SR before quickly responding - probably in order to meet some type of internal response time metric. Based on those experiences, I'm skeptical about this OCM utility, but maybe they are better about actually using the information it provides? I'm curious to hear other's experiences with it.  

To be fair, I have had many good Oracle support experiences too - and I always try to submit the feedback surveys accordingly - but it is really hit or miss.

We've set it up on a couple of environments to test it out and it seems to speed up the process. I've always found that the first time you open a tar there is a period of back and forth with Oracle requesting information.
