BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2013-Apr-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3 and 9.0 series.

  • BMC are advising customers who have more than a trivial number of Microsoft IIS installations in the environments they scan with Atrium discovery NOT to install TKU April 2013.
  • A change to the Microsoft IIS pattern module introduced in TKU April 2013 can significantly impact the performance of Atrium Discovery (ISS04134972)
  • The customers should instead install Technology Knowledge Update 2013-May-1 (TKU May 2013)
  • If you have already installed the Technology Knowledge Update April 2013, it is strongly recommended that you deactivate the Microsoft IIS pattern and plan to install Technology Knowledge Update 2013-May-1

TKU 2013-Apr-1 is released in two streams:

  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3 series
