Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS04000165 QM001764121 Problem: Extended database Discovery of Microsoft SQL 2000 Server is not triggering due to the system not detecting the IP address the server is listening on - the server is in a cluster configuration Solution: Pattern update implemented improving discovery of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 in general as well as when in cluster configuration

Microsoft SQL Server

ISS03910905 QM001767427 Problem: Micosoft Lync Front-End Server over-identified when scanning hosts with Microsoft Lync installed Solution: Microsoft Lync Front-End pattern updated with an improved method to identify this component of the product

Microsoft Lync Server

ISS04015174 QM001767429 Problem: Oracle WebLogic Server Extended J2EE discovery pattern can under certain relatively rare circumstances exit with an ECA engine error Solution: Code fix
