    Enhanced Pattern Modules

    RFE ref. Product Enhancement SI Key Change Product Page
    QM001689548 BMC Remedy Action Request System Server pattern enhanced to take into account more than the default configuration file when creating a relationship with the database server SI. Package and file versioning optimized. Mid-Tier pattern has had a minor improvement made to the method used to parse the related server names. Y

    BMC Remedy AR System

    N/A IBM Tivoli Data Warehouse Proxy Agent pattern enhanced to add relationship link to the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server. New pattern (Summarization and Pruning Agent) added to the module. A pattern that creates an IBM Tivoli Data Warehouse 2nd order SI, grouping the components of the product has been added to the module. Y

    IBM Tivoli Data Warehouse

    N/A IBM Tivoli Directory Server The pattern enhanced to obtain and store the directory server name within the Software Instance N

    IBM Tivoli Directory Server

    N/A IBM Tivoli Monitoring IBM Tivoli Monitoring Enterprise Monitoring Server pattern enhanced to obtain the server name and port and store these as attributes to the SI. The key for the SI model changed based on new research. IBM Tivoli Monitoring Enterprise Portal Server pattern enhanced to obtain the port and store it as attribute of the SI. Furthermore, pattern now creates a relationship with the related Tivoli Monitoring Server SIs. New pattern (IBM Tivoli Monitoring Enterprise Portal Client) added to the module. New pattern (IBM Tivoli CAM for Internet Service Monitoring Agent) added to the module. Y

    IBM Tivoli Monitoring

    N/A IBM Lotus Forms Server - Webform Server Webform Server Translator pattern enhanced by adding the 'install_root' attribute to the SI so it can be leveraged by other patterns of the same suite. N

    IBM Forms Server - Webform Server

    N/A Oracle Database Installed Options Pattern configuration updated to add an additional Oracle option to the default list that is searched through as a result of an SQL query. Furthermore, pattern code enhanced to ensure that the list of Oracle options is up to date on every scan, i.e. the Detail nodes holding this information are managed on every scan. Y

    Oracle Database Installed Options

    N/A Oracle RAC A new pattern (Oracle RAC Global Enqueue Manager) has been added to the module N

    Oracle Real Application Clusters

    N/A Sterling Commerce Control Center A new pattern (Sterling Commerce Control Center Agent) has been added to the module N
