Bugs Fixed

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

Case No Defect No Details Pattern Module
N/A 12749 Problem: 'revision' attribute in the DB2 Server pattern was being set even if revision of the product was '0'. Solution: 'revision' attribute now set to empty string if revision is '0'.

IBM.DB2.RDBMS

23264 12792 Microsoft SQL Server versions pertaining to 2008 SP1 now have mapping entries from internal product version ('version' attribute) to marketing version ('product_version' attribute)

Microsoft.SQLServer

ISS03547781 12823 Problem: Oracle WorkFlow pattern was exiting with an ECA Engine error due to an erroneous function call argument in discovery.runCommand() call. This had no effect on the scanned hosts but did lead to Oracle Workflow Software Instances not being created. Solution: Code fix - correct arguments passed to the discovery.runCommand() function

Oracle.Workflow

23383 12836 Incorrect mapping between SUPPORTDETAIL pattern for CA AutoSys Workload Automation Server and the actual SI (old SI type used in the mapping) corrected N/A

Extended Data Pack

Product Lifecycle Patterns

You can use Tideway Foundation / BMC Atrium Discovery 8.x and OS / Software product lifecycle data to:

  • Identify operating systems and software that are exposed to security / stability risks as they are no longer supported by patch updates
  • Identify operating systems and software that you may may be paying a premium maintenance subscription for
  • Identify operating systems and software that are no longer shipping so may increase costs and risks associated with variance

Operating System Product Lifecycle Patterns
TKU 2009-Jan-1 includes product life cycle patterns providing End Of Life, End Of Support and End Of Extended Support dates for:

  • 11 publishers
  • 17 operating systems
  • 177 operating system versions

Go to the OS Product Life Cycle Patterns - TKU 2010-Jan-1 page for a full list of products included in this release.

Software Product Lifecycle Patterns
This TKU includes product life cycle patterns providing End Of Life, End Of Support and End Of Extended Support dates for:

  • 33 publishers
  • 246 software products
  • 1,306 software product versions

Go to the Software Product Life Cycle Patterns - TKU 2010-Jan-1 page for a full list of products included in this release.

Hardware Reference Data

You can use Tideway Foundation hardware reference data to:

  • Identify servers that can be expanded in situations where space is a constraining factor in the data center
  • Identify server refresh / rationalization candidates in situations where cooling is a constraining factor in the data center
  • Identify server refresh / rationalization candidates in situations where power is a constraining factor in the data center

This TKU includes hardware reference data providing Rack Size, Power Consumption, Heat Output and Maximum Memory capacity for:

  • 9 manufacturers
  • 408 server models
  • 1,213 server model configurations
