BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2019-May-1 contains the following additional product content for the BMC Discovery 11.3 and 11.2 series:

Product content updates require appliance restart

When product content is added, the appliance is restarted as part of the update. You are given the opportunity to prevent the restart, though if you do so, none of the knowledge content will be installed.

Distributed Storage Model Discovery

In the TKU May release we have introduced a new Distributed Storage Model.

The Distributed Storage Model is a set of multiple physical systems where storage capacity and computing power are grouped together to behave as one single storage system (cluster). 

The following patterns are now based on the Distributed Storage Model:
