Oracle RDBMS - Database Detail Pattern

QM001712121 Java Virtual Machine Pattern enhanced to obtain information on whether the installation of Java VM that is running is part of a JDK or JRE. This information is stored as an attribute. Furthermore, path versioning has been enhanced further with additional regular expressions. N

- HP Mercury SiteScope In the HP SiteScope pattern module, the ApplicationServer pattern has been enhanced with addition of file versioning and additional package and registry information to support the other versioning methods. The pattern now also creates Detail nodes to represent the installed monitors. The HP SiteScope Service pattern has been disabled as it doesn't actually create an SI for a major component of the product. Finally, a pattern discovering HP Mercury SiteScope Failover Manager has been added to the pattern module N

Bugs Fixed

The following bugs have been fixed in this release

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS03762429\\ISS03824514 QM001707009 Pattern metadata describing product categories in IBM Cognos PowerPlay, IBM InfoSphere Data Event Publisher and IBM Tivoli Common Reporting pattern modules has been corrected to be consistent with other product patterns for products in the same product category (End User, Query, and Reporting Analysis)

ISS03824521 QM001707009 Problem: (Oracle) BEA WebLogic Application Server pattern incorrectly creates a new SI in cases where an existing application server instance has been re-started with changes in the command-line arguments Solution: Algorithm to set the SI key has been rewritten which should prevent the duplicate SIs being created. This has led to a change of SI key, so initial scans may show duplicate Software Instances of WebLogic application server until the old SIs are aged out by the system

BEA WebLogic Application Server

ISS03810203 QM001713955 Problem: Quest Toad pattern could exit with an ECA Engine error when performing registry versioning Solution: Code fix. Registry versioning made more robust

Quest Toad

ISS03796098 QM001714318 Problem: SAP Suite pattern missing code to manage obsolete second order SIs Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated with code to manage any 2nd order SIs which are no longer being updated

SAP Business Suite

ISS03807228 QM001715157 Problem: End of Support dates for Red Hat ES Linux v4 and 5 are incorrect Solution: Pattern updated with dates obtained from Red Hat product lifecycle website

OS Product Life Cycle Patterns - Extended Data Pack 2011-Aug-1

ISS03813442 #14890 Problem: Current Sybase jConnect and Sybase Java SDK patterns produce a very similar model which leads to duplicate SIs being created Solution: Sybase Java SDK pattern disabled as not required N/A
ISS03814680 QM001717147 Problem: BMC Remedy AR Server pattern parses incorrectly the information about the related Microsoft SQL Server, for discovered Remedy AR system which use Microsoft SQL Server as the database Solution: Pattern updated with a new parsing algorithm to determine the correct database host

BMC Remedy AR System

- #14777 Problem: Code that searches for related software in the Server, ConfigurationAgent and AgentListener patterns of the BMC CONTROL/M pattern module is incorrectly executed even when an instance-based SI is not created Solution: Code fix. Patterns updated to ensure the code is only executed when instance-based SI is created

BMC CONTROL-M

- #14840 Problem: With certain Remedy configurations, the BMC Remedy AR Server pattern parses incorrectly the information about the related Oracle Database Server Solution: Pattern updated with a new parsing algorithm to determine the correct database host

BMC Remedy AR System

- #14843 Problem: In IBM Informix Dynamic Server pattern, the install_root variable is populated (and its value then subsequently used) even if the installation path is not absolute Solution: Pattern updated to ensure that this information is populated (and value used in versioning) only when the installation path obtained is absolute

IBM Informix Dynamic Server

- #14861 Problem: IBM Rational Build Forge Agent pattern, and Symantec VERITAS NetBackup NetBackupClient pattern (if configured by user to try to detect all instances of the NetBackup client) can trigger and create SI nodes on ESXi hosts (Atrium Discovery 8.2 and above). Solution: Code fix. Patterns updated to check the host class Atrium Discovery is in the process of discovering in more detail prior to continuing to execute.

Symantec VERITAS NetBackup

- #14892 Problem: BMC Transaction Management Application Response Time CentralApplicationServer pattern assumes that version obtained will always have at least major and minor components and if it does not, exits with an ECA engine error Solution: Code fix. Pattern made more robust in dealing with variations in the data obtained from scanned hosts

BMC Transaction Management Application Response Time

- #14914\\#14915 Problem: In certain pattern modules, the code in some of their patterns used to create SI keys is incorrectly implemented, which can lead to a lower number of software instances of this product being detected Solution: Code fix. Patterns updated with corrected code. In all cases SI key has changed slightly which will lead to creation of new Software Instances and ageing of old SIs

- 14972 Problem: The current Apache Tomcat pattern matches on the Tomcat component within Sun Java Web Console which is a Sun-specific embedded release uses a different version numbering scheme. Solution: As this embedded version of Apache Tomcat is sufficiently different to standalone Apache Tomcat Server, the Apache Tomcat server has been updated to filter out instances of Sun Java Web Console
