Agreed- doing a port scan without authorization could lead to some serious repercussions with your management.  

If you are looking to bring somebody in to do this job (say, Licensing Audits) then you can contact Miro Consulting- they do this sort of thing routinely and have scan tools. - Disclaimer- I have no relationship with them at all, but have used them in the past for licensing audit work.

Hi Guys:  

Is there a tool out there that would sniff out my network and find all the oracle installs, versions, hardware info on the servers etc?

You could use nmap (linux) to find ports being used in the range that Oracle uses, typically 1521-1529 would find something if Oracle is being used.

I've used a perl script called pcan to do this.

However you go about it, talk to your security folks before you start a port scan on the network.
