Before 2015

TKU December 2009

In TKU December 2009 Hyper-V Server pattern now uses WMI Query as the primary approach to obtain details of the running VMs.
Additionally, the original identifier used to populate vm_uuid SI attribute was incorrect, and this has now been corrected - this value is now stored as vm_bios_serial attribute and used (as before) to create relationships between the Hyper-V VM Software Instances and Virtual Host instances.
Furthermore, version mapping enhanced to support 2008 R2 release of Hyper-V.

TKU May 2011

In TKU May 2011 pattern module enhanced to improve the algorithm to uniquely link the Hyper-V VM Software Instance with its corresponding virtual host through addition of another attribute to match between the Hyper-V VM SI and the virtual host

TKU November 2013

In TKU November 2013 a 'vm_class' attribute is added to Host nodes that are running virtualization software discovered by Atrium Discovery to enable easier reporting in a future version of Atrium Discovery

TKU September 2014

From TKU Sep 2014, the pattern includes the following updates:

  • The pattern has been improved to better identify related UNIX virtual machines and the Microsoft Hyper-V server.

TKU October 2014

In TKU October 2014, the Microsoft Hyper-V pattern was updated to support versions 2012 and 2012 R2.

TKU November 2014

In TKU November 2014, the Microsoft Hyper-V in pattern was updated WMI approach for version 2012 (RFE QM001862161)
