BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2009-Dec-1 and Extended Data Pack 2009-Dec-1 are deliverables for the Tideway Foundation platform version 7.2 and later as well as BMC Atrium Discovery version 8.0 and 8.1.
TKU 2009-Dec-1 is released in three streams:
TKU December (TKU 2009-Dec-1) is not compatible with nor supported on versions of Tideway Foundation before v7.2
Customers can access this TKU release from either the BMC Electronic Product Distribution Website or the Tideway Downloads site (Download Area->latesttku). If you're a customer or partner and do not already have a login please contact your BMC account manager.
The release comprises of four components packaged as two licensable entities:

|BMC||CONTROL-M||BMC CONTROL-M/Agent pattern can optionally attempt to obtain the trigger process absolute path (if not obtained from the process listing) on Solaris and Linux platforms by running 'pmap' utility via privilege escalation. This functionality is disabled by default.||N|
|Microsoft||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.||Y|
The following bugs have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2009-Dec-1
|Case No||Defect No||Details||Pattern Module|
|23139||12242||Problem: Depending on version Microsoft SQL Server being discovered, the Extended SQL Server pattern could fail to obtain the list of databases even with correct credentials as it relies on executing a stored procedure that may not be there or requiring more elevated credentials. Solution: Added another SQL query that obtains the list from sys.databases|
|22086||12505||See Microsoft Hyper-V Server entry in 'Enhanced software Instance Patterns' section|
|N/A||12668||SI type for IBM FileNet Mid Range Image Import (part of IBM FileNet Image Import module) was missing the publisher name. Pattern updated with a fix.|
|N/A||12718||BMC Control-M Configuration Agent and Agent Listener patterns have a key_group that has type/host.key added to it which is not required since this is always implicitly added to the SI key that the system generates. Pattern updated so that grouping is based on version obtained.|
|N/A||12719||IBM Tivoli Netcool/Reporter pattern can create an SI where a key_group has type/host.key added to it which is not required since this is always implicitly added to the SI key that the system generates. Pattern updated so that if this kind of SI is being generated, the system will just create an implicit grouped key|
|23122||12730||Problem: The SI key created by Sybase Open Server pattern is not unique which leads to the SI being linked to multiple host (in essence multiple instances on various hosts merging into one). Solution: Pattern re-written to ensure that the SI key is unique. The SI key being created now is therefore different to the SI key that was created before. Pattern version has been incremented by a major version number.|
|23156||12741||HP Application Security Center WebInspect pattern was missing the publishers information in its metadata - this interferes with reports requiring this information. Pattern metadata updated with publisher information.|
|N/A||12751||Symantec VERITAS Storage Foundation pattern will have versions set to 'None' if license information not obtained following the fix to issue #12550 (TKU Nov 2009). Pattern code now fixed.|
|N/A||12767||BMC Control-M Agent Tracker pattern havs a key_group that has type/host.key added to it which is not required since this is always implicitly added to the SI key that the system generates. Pattern updated so that grouping is based on either path and version obtained or version obtained.|
|N/A||12768||Problem: In the BMC CONTROL-M Agent Listener pattern, the retrieval of values from the Windows Registry are not correctly linked to instance as any instance name given in the trigger process path is completely ignored. Solution: Instance name extracted from trigger process path and used to seed the retrieval of values from the Windows Registry.|
