    Enhanced Software Instance Patterns

    Vendor Product Enhancement SI Key Change Pattern Module
    IBM POWER Hardware The pattern compatible with ADDM 8.2.x has had its trigger updated to improve accuracy of modelling of LPARs. The key for the HostContainer node has changed to reflect changes to the way LPARs are modelled HostContainer key change

    Hardware.IBM.AIXSystem_p

    IBM InfoSphere DataStage The SI type for IBM WebSphere DataStage was changed to IBM InfoSphere DataStage to reflect the name change implemented by IBM Y

    IBM.WebSphere.DataStage

    Microsoft Exchange Server Based on customer feedback, the pattern was enhanced with a method to obtain edition information for Exchange Server 2000 and 2003 N

    Microsoft.Exchange

    Oracle Database Server Oracle Database Server pattern now updated in such a way so that the file containing edition information can be accessed for parsing with elevated privileges (UNIX platform). This is user configurable and controlled by the use of 'priv_execution' flag in the same way as other commands that can be executed with elevated privileges in this pattern. N

    Oracle.OracleRDBMS

    Oracle Real Application Clusters Pattern now updated to execute the 'srvctl' command with elevated privileges if the command fails to execute using default user privileges of the Discovery user. This is user configurable and controlled by the use of 'priv_execution' flag in the same way as other commands that can be executed with elevated privileges in this pattern. N

    Oracle.RealApplicationClusters

    Oracle WebLogic Application Server The patten now provides additional configuration options enabling user to specify possible absolute paths to the WebLogic domain in case the pattern cannot derive it itself. This option is disabled by default as it can have a negative impact on discovery performance. N

    BEA.WebLogicApplicationServer

    Various Patterns that perform database queries now have a user configurable option to disable those queries if required. The database queries are enabled by default in order to enable the pattern to gather as much information as possible. N

    Bugs Fixed

    The following bugs have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2010-Dec-1

    Case No Defect No Details Pattern Module
    ISS03704773 / ISS03671609 QM001682304 Problem: BMC BladeLogic Server Automation RSCD Agent pattern has an incorrect Windows trigger process leading to failure to identify this component of BMC BladeLogic Server Automation suite on Windows platform Solution: Pattern updated with the correct trigger process

    BMC.BladeLogic.ServerAutomationSuite

    ISS03678840 QM001684334 Problem: Certain IBM Power models incorrectly labelled in Hardware Reference Data Solution: HRD updated with corrected hardware model names N/A
    ISS03693053 QM001684746 Problem: WebLogic Application Server pattern can fail to obtain the version information from registry.xml file due to a strict requirement that the installation directory path within registry.xml and that obtained by the pattern completely match. Solution: Parsing of version from registry.xml file has been modified to obtain the version even if the installation directories do not exactly match but there is only one possible candidate WebLogic instance.

    BEA.WebLogicApplicationServer

    ISS03692358 QM001685720 Problem: Oracle (BEA) WebLogic Integration pattern may incorrectly identify the product Solution: Pattern now confirms the existence of the product by parsing a configuration file (registry.xml) and if reference to the product not found, the pattern does not generate a Software Instance

    BEA.WebLogic.Integration

    N/A 14097 Problem: BMC BladeLogic Server Automation Server pattern can in some cases exit with an ECA Engine error due to an incorrect log statement Solution: Pattern code fixed and log statement corrected

    BMC.BladeLogic.ServerAutomationSuite

    N/A 14169 Problem: Symantec VERITAS File System pattern can create License Detail node with a name attribute which contains more than one space between words. Solution: Pattern updated to ensure that only a single space between words is created

    Symantec.VERITAS.Filesystem
