    Bugs Fixed

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

    Case NoDefect NoDetailsPattern Module
    ISS03606834QM001659228 / 13112 / 13214Problem: Microsoft IIS pattern creates an incorrect model of discovered Web Applications and Virtual Directories particularly in cases where more complex web applications are installed Solution: Code fix. Following extensive research an improved algorithm was introduced to model Web Applications and Virtual directories as well as their relationships

    Microsoft.IIS

    n/a13238Code blocks which involve searches within the datastore to create relationships between SIs improved to take into account more variation in data the patterns have available to them. Overall result is an improvement in the number of relationships created between SIs.

    ISS03612612QM001663151 / 13337Problem: Oracle E-Business patterns do not handle removal of E-Business SIs if the software is no longer detected on the host. Solution: Code fix. Patterns significantly redesigned and re-written.

    Oracle.eBusiness.SoftwareInstances

    n/a13406Problem: Microsoft SQL Server pattern attempts to retrieve certain registry key values even if the complete registry key path is not determined Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated to only attempt to retrieve registry key values if the complete path to the registry key has been determined

    Microsoft.SQLServer

    ISS03626498QM001666411 / 13431Problem: Java VM pattern can fail to obtain publisher information as it isn't available in the output of 'java -version' even though it is available in the output of 'java -fullversion' command Solution: Pattern updated to parse output of both commands if in order to obtain publisher information if this information is not present in the output of 'java -version'

    JavaVM

    ISS03655947QM001673662 / 13471Problem: Oracle TNS Listener pattern can exit with an ECA Engine error when parsing tnsnames.ora files with service names which contain characters like '+' Solution: TNS Listener pattern parsing code updated to correctly interpret these characters.

    Oracle.OracleRDBMS

    ISS03639395QM001669181 / 13572Problem: The SI key used in the WebLogic Application Server pattern can at times be not unique enough as it does not contain the 'domain' attribute. Multiple servers of the same name can run on the host as long as they belong to a different domain. Solution: WebLogic Application Server patterns updated - the SI key now also includes domain information

    BEA.WebLogicApplicationServer

    ISS03643093QM001670711 / 13574Problem: Oracle Workflow SI currently stores the Oracle DB SID as 'instance' attribute on the SI which is incorrect as Oracle Workflow is identified per installation and each installation (ora_home) can have multiple DB servers (instances) running What then happens is that the instance attribute is populated with the name of the last DB Server instance the pattern triggered on. Solution: Oracle Workflow pattern updated to no longer obtain or store the 'instance' attribute on the SI

    Oracle.Workflow

    ISS03642627QM001670743 / 13575Problem: File versioning approach in BMC CONTROL-M patterns does not work with CONTROL-M 6.x. The filename where the version information is stored has changed. Solution: Patterns updated to also try the new filename if the initial file versioning approach fails

    BMC.CONTROLM

    ISS03646877QM001670853 / 13577Problem: The BMC Remedy ARS Server pattern doesn't seem to always create a communication link to the DB server (in this case SQLServer) even if all the information is available Solution: Pattern updated to better handle information obtained about databases.

    BMC.RemedyARSystem

    n/a13618Problem: Version information in the VMware Virtual Center Agent pattern could be incorrectly stored Solution: Code fix. Pattern logic updated to resolve this issue.

    VMware.VirtualCenter

    ISS03650072QM001673923 / 13656Problem: HP OpenView Operations Manager and Agent patterns fail to obtain correct versions for patched products Solution: Patterns updated with additional methods to more accurately obtain product information

    HP.OpenViewOperations

    ISS03657677QM001674548Problem: BMC Patrol Agent pattern fails to obtain the list of installed Knowledge Modules (KMs) on UNIX platforms Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated to correctly obtain the list of installed KMs

    BMC.PatrolAgent
