    Bugs Fixed

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

    Case No Defect No Details Product Page
    ISS03837257 QM001723934 Problem: SQL Query used by the extended Microsoft SQL Server DB pattern to obtain list of managed databases does not function correctly on SQL Server 2000 Solution: Pattern extended with an additional SQL query which is used when the version of Microsoft SQL Server is 2000

    Microsoft SQL Server

    ISS03851856 QM001724771 Problem: Active version method used for obtaining the version of Oracle Database Server obtains an incorrect version for v7 of Oracle RDBMS Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated with code to determine if the version obtained using active approach is likely to be correct and also to map the version obtained on Oracle 7 installations to that version of the product.

    Oracle RDBMS

    ISS03855556 QM001725255 Problem: Microsoft SQL Server pattern can terminate with an ECA Engine error when identifying SQL Server installations configured to listen on multiple ports Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated with more robust code to parse port information. If a list of ports is obtained, the first port number is stored in the Microsoft SQL Server SI 'port' attribute, and all port numbers are stored as a list in 'port_list' SI attribute

    Microsoft SQL Server

    ISS03859018 QM001725487 Problem: The length of the Software Instance key created by the EventQueueMonitor, Automation and MonitoringDaemons patterns in the HP OpenView ServiceCenter pattern module can exceed 256 characters leading to failure to sync these SIs to the Atrium CMDB Solution: Patterns updated with code to apply the MD5 hash to the longest component of the SI key in order to shorten the overall length to below 256 characters

    HP OpenView ServiceCenter

    ISS03862326 QM001726286 Problem: One of the Software Instance attributes in the BackupExecServer pattern in the Symantec Backup Exec pattern module is not displayed in the Atrium Discovery UI even if the data was obtained Solution: Code fix. Pattern will now display the data in this attribute when the user drills down to the Software Instance details in the Atrium Discovery UI

    Symantec Backup Exec

    BMC ProactiveNet Analytics

    ISS03858960 QM001726981 Problem: The package versioning method used to obtain the version of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services can incorrectly use the version obtained from SharePoint Administration Toolkit as the version of the SharePoint Services product Solution: Code fix. Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit package is filtered out for product versioning purposes by the pattern

    Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services

    ISS03861006 QM001725910 Problem: Symantec Deployment Solution PXE Server pattern can incorrectly identify an instance of HP Device Manager Solution: Pattern updated with code to positively confirm that Symantec Altiris Deployment Solution is running

    Symantec Deployment Solution

    ISS03865148 QM001727628 Problem: Quest Toad pattern can terminate with an ECA Engine error in cases where installation directory was not obtained due to logging messages attempting to output this data Solution: Code fix. Logging messages reorganized.

    HP Performance Manager

    - #15389 Problem: BlackBerry Enterprise Server pattern sets the 'product_version' SI attribute to the x.y format whereas the format should be x.y.z in order to allow the version to be mapped to end of support information Solution: Pattern updated to set the 'product_version' attribute in x.y.z format

    RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server

    - #113750 Problem: IBM DB2 Server pattern can over report the number of features installed Solution: Pattern code logic fixed to report only on features that the pattern could positively identify licenses for
