Configuring after upgrade

After you verify the upgrade was successful, consider the following notices for performing any necessary post-upgrade procedures.

Upgrade considerations

Software catalog

The following notices relate to the replacement of ExpressMetrix software catalog with the Flexera software catalog:

  • ExpressMetrix applications cannot be mapped with Flexera applications. After the master server is upgraded the Software Catalog inventory is purged to the BCM database.
  • If you are using the BMC Atrium CMDB integration:
    • During the first import in the CMDB after master server is upgraded, all applications are regarded as new.
    • Customers need to launch the  Delete Software job to delete the old entries, then the Reconciliation & Merge job and finally the Purge job.
  • After an upgrade the existing application lists with Catalog objects are automatically updated with the new Custom Applications. 
    You must manually update the Licensed Software linked to Software Catalog.

  • With the new software catalog, applications lists are now restricted only to Client Management objects. Catalog objects are no longer supported. For more information about application lists, see updates to Managing applications.

  • The suites have been removed from software catalog. It is possible to replace them with another item: application or license via a tool that can be launched from console dashboard or from Software catalog node.

NMAP packages

NMAP packages are updated in the 20.08 version, however, they are not automatically reassigned to the scanners. You have to manually reassign the NMAP packages to the scanners after the upgrade.
