Defects Resolved

The following defects have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2012-Dec-1

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS04019709 QM001773923 Problem: No version number detected for SAP TREX Solution: Pattern updated with additional regular expressions to parse version command output (as this varies between versions)


ISS04055276 QM001774637

Problem: TIBCO Runtime Agent sets the SI key incorrectly leading to the SI being created being potentially linked to multiple hosts

Solution: Code fix. SI Key has been updated

TIBCO Runtime Agent

ISS04015174 QM001775217 Problem: Following updates in TKU November 2012 to the pattern performing extended J2EE discovery of Oracle WebLogic Server it was found that the pattern can under certain circumstances exit with an ECA Engine error Solution: Code fix.

Oracle WebLogic Server

ISS04056048 QM001775333 Problem: Changes to the CMDB sync pattern (TKU October 2012) that maps some Atrium Discovery Host node attributes to BMC_OperatingSystem CI in Atrium CMDB can lead to sync failures if the OS type is known but version was not discovered (as can occur when a host is discovered by SNMP) Solution: Code fix.

Atrium Discovery System patterns

- #16629 Code in the HP Virtual Machine Management Service pattern that creates a relationship with the database server no longer uses case sensitive search for the database name as the discovered database name of the related database server is not always in the same case

HP Virtual Machine Management Pack

- #16651 Problem: An issue seen occasionally on Solaris platform where result of running a command can return more information than expected causes the Solaris Discovery condition pattern to exit with an ECA engine error Solution: Code fix. Relevant pattern function updated to parse the required information correctly
