    Microsoft SQL Server extended database discovery pattern updated to no longer use file based database discovery as one of the default methods as database file names do not necessarily match the names of the databases. File based discovery is now user configurable option (turned off by default), and if used will no longer create DatabaseDetail nodes but Detail nodes instead (not automatically synced to Atrium CMDB).
    Finally, the pattern code managing the lifecycle of DatabaseDetail (and Detail) nodes created by the pattern has been improved
