TKU August 2009

In TKU August we extended our support for the Network Deployment Edition, and are now able to map interdependencies among Cells, Nodes and Servers. These 3 elements are mapped via Client/Server relationships. See the relevant Section for more details.

We also added a Regular Expression method to extract Edition and Versioning.

Finally, we enabled support for the Node Agent's and Deployment Manager's running on Windows platforms.


TKU March 2010

In TKU March 2010 we extended our patterns with populating JMX port information attributes which then can be used for deep discovery of WebSphere instances.

TKU July 2010

From TKU July 2010 we check an extra file during active versioning

TKU October 2010

In TKU October 2010 the profile_dir attribute was added to the Software Instance


TKU September 2011

In TKU September 2011 the method for finding the versioning file was improved. The pattern now runs a command to find the file and only in case the command does not work it uses the previous method of iterating through the list of known editions in order to retrieve the correct file.

TKU October 2011

In TKU October 2011 extra known versions were added and another versioning method was added which uses the versionInfo script on Windows and UNIX for extracting version and edition.


TKU January 2012

In TKU January 2012 the grep expression for listing .product file was strengthened to avoid bogus entries. (QM001731481)
A new entry was added to the list of package expressions to obtain version correctly. (QM001733251)
A minor correction was made to the regular expression obtaining the installation root. (#15290)

TKU December 2012

In TKU December 2012 the pattern has had a minor update to ensure mapping of certain attributes to Atrium CMDB BMC_Product CI matches Atrium Product Catalog Data (as published by BMC)


TKU March 2013

In TKU March 2013 the path to the product file on Windows platform was fixed.

TKU August 2013

In TKU August 2013 the Extended discovery source_name regex was updated to prevent ECA error

TKU September 2013

In TKU September 2013 the WebSphere Application Server pattern was enhanced with an alternative approach to obtaining server name, Cell name and Node name to cater for situations where trigger process arguments are truncated (QM001800837). This approach relies on the customer having set the custom property "" at the Cell scope.

TKU December 2013

In TKU December 2013 there was a small bug fix to ensure all additional attributes were displayed on the software instance. Furthermore,
the WebSphere Application Server pattern was updated to allow running of 'ls' command as privileged user (if configured in UNIX/Linux platform scripts via PRIV_LS) when determining edition


TKU February 2014

In TKU February 2014 we updated the trigger block with extra arguments to support the case when the Application Server is started with server, cell and node names in front of all arguments.

TKU April 2014

In TKU April 2014 server, node and cell names extraction was updated.

TKU May 2014

In TKU May 2014 Fixed a way of obtaining version information from triggering process(TKU-2204).

TKU June 2014

In TKU Jun 2014 profile_dir attribute had been added to Deployment Manager SI.

TKU December 2014

In TKU Dec 2014 the pattern was update to correctly handle the situation when a resources candidate path begin with "." symbol.(QM001864923). 


TKU April 2015

In TKU April 2015 the pattern was updated with the following changes:

  • The pattern now discovers JMS and JCA resources. (QM001877252 )
  • Minor improvements. (QM001875177 )
  • The following problem was resolved: The pattern might not discover the server_name, cell_name, and node_name for WebSphere Application Server SI.(TKU-3463, Esc 070157)

TKU November 2015

In TKU November 2015 the pattern was updated with the following changes:

  • An alternative server name extraction method added. (DRDC1-5007 )


TKU February 2016

In TKU February 2016 added active and file versioning for Network Deployment edition. Added "cluster_name" and "cluster_node_id" attributes for WAS cluster modeling purposes(DRDC1-5504).

TKU April 2016

In TKU April 2016 added alternative method of search for the related Node Agent hosts using nslookup command.(DRDC1-6011).

TKU June 2016

In TKU June 2016 added "heap_min_size", "heap_max_size", "fix_pack" attributes to the SI(DRDC1-5942).

TKU December 2016

In TKU December 2016 'listen_tcp_sockets', 'listen_ssl_tcp_sockets' attributes were added(DRDC1-7528).


TKU January 2017

In TKU January 2017 added filter to avoid setting environment variables into "listen_tcp_sockets", "listen_ssl_tcp_sockets" and "listening_ports" additional attributes.

TKU March 2017

In TKU march 2017  support for installation on IBM PowerHA Cluster  was added for WAS Deployment Manager (DRDC1-7514)

TKU April 2019

In TKU April 2019 the following changes were made:

  • Pattern runCommands updated.

TKU July 2019

In TKU July 2019 the following changes were made:

  • Key is updated to include profile information, if there are several servers with the same cell:name combination running on the same host from different profiles.

TKU October 2019

In TKU October 2019 the following changes were made:

  • Updated versioning and trigger for IBM WebSphere Application Server Node agent and Deployment Manager.

TKU March 2020

In TKU March 2020  updated regex to extract cell, node and server name (DRDC1-14462)

TKU June 2020

In TKU June 2020   

  • Added false-positive check (DRDC1-15045)
  • Updated linkage between WebSphere App server and WebSphere MQ queue manager (DRDC1-15002)
