Defects Resolved

The following defects have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2013-Jul-1

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS03991289 QM001771903 Problem: CMDB sync failed to create a relationship between second-order SI and its contained SI. SoftwareInstance maps to BMC_SoftwareServer or BMC_ApplicationSystem, depending upon whether it is first-order or second-order SI. CMDB.SoftwareInstance_Containment CDM mapping currently handles first-order SI only. Solution: CMDB.SoftwareInstance_Containment CDM mapping will handle first-order and second-order SI.

Atrium Discovery System patterns

ISS04096044, ISS04119398 QM001783964 Problem: CMDB sync patterns that map some Atrium Discovery node attributes to Atrium CMDB CI sometimes does not set unique enough values for ADDM RE Identification Rules to identify these. This regularly ends up in Duplicated CIs problems for BMC_Database, BMC_SoftwareServer, BMC_ApplicationSystem and BMC_Cluster CIs. Solution: TokenId is now populated for these CIs with unique enough values.

ISS04151363 QM001794178 Problem: Support Details information for Windows Server 2012 is not being linked to hosts identified as running Windows Server 2012 Solution: An issue in the way Atrium Discovery OS classifier was setting the version of Windows Server 2012 which prevented the Support Detail node to be linked to the Host node has been resolved N/A

- #TKU-1881 Patterns in the HP Data Protector module now normalize the version obtained using active versioning approach to ensure that the version is set uniformly. Mapping to product version has also been standardized to allow for successful linking to Support Detail nodes for the product.

- #TKU-1886 Problem: Oracle Secure Enterprise Search pattern fails to create a communication relationship to a related Oracle Database SI due to an incorrect regular expression used in the datastore search query Solution: Code fix. Regular expression updated

- #TKU-1882 Problem: Parallels Virtuozzo Containers pattern creates a 'vm_ip' attribute containing '--' characters if it cannot obtain the information to populate this attribute. This approach does not follow best practice - setting the attribute to an empty string. Solution: Code fix. The attribute will now be either set to an IP address if the data is obtained, or to an empty string otherwise.
