ISS03721444 QM001694412 Problem: Oracle (BEA) WebLogic Application Server pattern failing to obtain version information Solution: Pattern updated with new methods to obtain version information including an improvement in the way version is obtained from the registry.xml file

BEA WebLogic Application Server

ISS03729983 QM001694777 Problem: Microsoft IIS pattern when parsing Metabase.xml file from IIS6 is at times failing to obtain all application names. Furthermore, naming of some applications is incorrect Solution: Pattern updated to consider Virtual Directories present at Root level as applications and model them as such. Applications with name "Default Application" are named as "<Website Name> Application"

Microsoft Internet Information Services

ISS03737498 QM001697239 Problem: Activation of TKU February 2011 can fail on systems which have been upgraded from ADDM 8.1.x if those systems have had TKU December 2010 or later applied. This is due to the pattern version mismatch in the VMwareVM pattern Solution: Version mismatch fixed


N/A N/A VMware ESX server pattern updated to no longer create 'patch' attribute in the VMware ESX Server SI as the attribute contained a list of patches which could, due to the length of the value cause issues with sync to the CMDB. The attribute has now been renamed as 'patches' and is not synced to the CMDB by default


ISS03736241 N/A SAP Suite pattern updated to create a second order SI only if it has triggered off a SAP Application Server of type 'Central Instance'. The pattern then also creates a containment which adds 'Dialog Instance' type of SAP Application Server
