Bugs Fixed

The following bugs have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2011-May-1

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS03735278 QM001697525

Problem: If in a Microsoft Hyper-V environment there are Windows VMs (Virtual Hosts) hosted on different Hyper-V servers but having the same BIOS Serial number as discovered by ADDM, the patterns in the Microsoft Hyper-V pattern module that create relationships between Hyper-V VM SIs and Virtual Hosts will not consistently link the virtual host with related Hyper-V VM SI.

Solution: Hyper-V patterns updated to use not only the VM UUID <-> Virtual host Serial number as the unique key but also VM BIOS GUID <-> Virtual Host Windows UUID as well to ensure correct linking.
NOTE : The pattern update will not resolve the issue of multiple virtual hosts coallescing into one due to sharing the serial number. This will be addressed in the next ADDM release

Microsoft Hyper-V Server

ISS03738697 QM001698375 Problem: Primary versioning method used in BMC Performance Assurance Perceiver pattern can return incorrect product version Solution: Pattern updated to use a different method (file versioning) as the primary method of obtaining the product version

BMC Performance Perceiver

ISS03721947 QM001703297 Support added in WebLogic Application Server pattern for scenarios where there are multiple configuration blocks for WebLogic Application Server in one location (as they apply to different instances). Pattern chooses the most probable entries to use

BEA WebLogic Application Server

ISS03765228 QM001704519 Problem: BMC BladeLogic Server Automation Application Sever pattern can potentially be triggered twice per instance of the software creating 2 separate SIs Solution: Pattern updated with an improved trigger to prevent this occurence

BMC BladeLogic Server Automation Suite

ISS03769553 QM001705185 Problem: Pattern for BMC Corporate Directory Manager Server trigger can cross-match with a component of NimSoft Monitor Solution: Pattern updated to ensure that it will continue only if confirmation that BMC Corporate Directory Manager Server is running

BMC Corporate Directory Manager

ISS03767069 QM001705206 Problem: In some cases the key attribute of the IBM Tivoli Netcool/Impact GUI Server SI and CA Software Change Manager Client SI could have length longer than 255 characters causing issues when exporting SI data to the CMDB or RDBMS Solution: Patterns updated to ensure the longest part of the SI key string combination has an MD5 hash applied to it to shorten it
