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

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS03889725 QM001747231 Problem: Sybase ASE patterns can fail to parse port information from configuration files due to variations in how this information is entered. This can prevent extended database discovery of Sybase ASE Solution: Patterns updated to improve parsing of configuration information in order to extract port information

Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise

ISS03948109 QM001752901 Problem: On hosts where both Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 and Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 agent are installed, the current pattern will assign the same version (greater of the versions found) Solution: Original pattern module split into two to mirror the evolution of the product and resolve versioning issue

Apache HTTPD-based Webservers

ISS03970368 QM001757223 Problem: Changes to the Oracle Database Server pattern made for TKU May 2012 introduced an error in the sequence the pattern uses to obtain the location of ORACLE_HOME which can lead to incorrect version of the product being set on the resulting SI Solution: Code fix.

Oracle Database

- #14948, #16197 Common code used by extended J2EE discovery patterns (WebLogic Application Server, WebSphere Application Server, Apache Tomcat) and responsible for searching related Database SIs was refactored and will make use of default port numbers if core patterns could not obtain listening port information N/A
- #15908 Problem: IBM Lotus Connections pattern lacking code to manage removal of the SoftwareInstance in case the product is no longer detected on the scanned host Solution: Pattern updated with code to manage SI removal correctly

IBM Lotus Connections

ISS03916697 #16160

Problem: Host node 'os_class' attribute for VMware ESX/ESXi was changed in Atrium Discovery 8.3 from 'UNIX' to 'Other' as it is a Hypervisor. This can impact patterns that trigger on instances of ESX Server (when discovered via ssh) and use the 'os_class' attribute to run specific parts of the code (typically related to versioning)

Solution: Continuing on from TKU April and May, an additional set of patterns was reviewed and updated if required. Products for which patterns were updated are listed

Flexera FLEXnet Publisher
Adobe ColdFusion
Adobe Macromedia JRun
Attachmate Reflection for Secure IT
Autonomy Interwoven OpenDeploy
BEA Tuxedo
Borland StarTeam
Borland VisiBroker
CA AutoSys Workload Automation
CA Clarity
CA Unicenter DSM
CA NSM
CA XCOM Data Transport

- #16161 Oracle (BEA) WebLogic Application Server pattern improved to allow extended discovery to occur on the first scan of the host if the pattern has obtained all the relevant data, rather than often taking 2 scans before the model could be completed
