Defects Resolved

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

Case No Defect No Details Product Page
ISS04120473 QM001805277 Problem: Pattern combines multiple instances of TIBCO BusinessWorks Engine (some of which are different version) into one, leading to version attribute of the SI changing from scan to scan Solution: SI key changed to correctly model separate instances of the software

TIBCO BusinessWorks Engine

ISS04201550 QM001805689 Problem: Microsoft Windows HPC Server pattern can in certain cases exit with an ECA error Solution: Code fix.

Microsoft Windows HPC Server

ISS04199922 QM001806454 Problem: cdm_virtual_system_type attribute is not being set on Host nodes which represent AIX LPARs and Solaris LDOMs. The data stored in this attribute is therefore missing after syncing to the Atrium CMDB. Solution: Code fix.

IBM AIX System p Hardware

ISS04181123 QM001806749 Problem: Some HRD nodes holding data about Oracle Solaris systems are no longer linked to their related Host nodes in Atrium Discovery 9.x due to the change of how hardware model information is set on the Host nodes. Solution: Hardware Reference data updated to cater for the differences between Atrium Discovery 8.3.x and 9.x

BMC Atrium Discovery EDP Hardware Reference Data

ISS04205371 QM001807144 Problem: Pattern for extended Apache Tomcat discovery can in certain circumstances exit with an ECA Engine error while parsing time stamps in log files Solution: Code fix.

Apache Tomcat

ISS04209553 QM001807299 Problem: Oracle WebCenter Interaction (BEA AquaLogic User Interaction) pattern incorrectly creates an SI on hosts running Symantec Data Insight due to trigger process cross-match Solution: Code fix. Pattern updated to prevent SI creation unless it has determined that Oracle WebCenter Interaction is installed

Oracle WebCenter Interaction

ISS04193246 QM001807401 Problem: Under certain circumstances, hosts that do not belong to the same Solaris cluster may be consolidated under one Cluster node Solution: Code fix. The key used to determine the uniqueness of the cluster improved.

Oracle Solaris Cluster

ISS04202939 QM001807410 Problem: The current Microsoft BizTalk Server pattern does not create an accurate model of BizTalk Server Solution: Microsoft BizTalk Server pattern significantly rewritten and an additional pattern to model BizTalk Server groups added to the module in order to improve the accuracy of the model created.

Microsoft BizTalk Server

ISS04207042 QM001807560 Problem: Missing product version mapping for Microsoft Lync 2013 Solution: Code fix. Version mapping updated. The module further enhanced through addition of a pattern to identify Microsoft Lync Server Mediation

Microsoft Lync Server

ISS04206817 QM001807910 Problem: Software Support Details not always linking to the related SI nodes even though EOL information for particular versions exists. Solution: Code fix in Software Support Detail and OS Support Detail patterns.

BMC Atrium Discovery EDP Software Product Support Details

ISS04212018 QM001808040 Problem: Oracle Clusterware pattern that creates a Cluster node should not have the word 'Server' in the 'name' and 'type' attributes as it represents the cluster of servers and not a single server Solution: Code fix - 'name' and 'type' attributes updated.

Oracle Clusterware

ISS04207486 QM001809570 Problem: HP Performance Manager pattern can cause performance issues on the Atrium Discovery appliance with very large transaction log files being created if it identifies the HP Performance Manager software configured to communicate with the same software on large number of hosts Solution: Pattern now has a configuration option that controls whether it should attempt to create relationships to other HP Performance Manager SIs (disabled by default). Common library code (used by this and other patterns) also improved to make it more efficient.

HP Performance Manager

- #TKU-2007 Problem: Search query in the pattern that attempts to relate the SI created to TIBCO Runtime Agent SI is incorrect which leads to failure to create the relationship Solution: Code fix

TIBCO BusinessEvents Engine

ISS04116634 QM001808915 Problem: WebLogic Server pattern doesn't make check install_root before returning it in getBeaHomeUnix() Solution: Code fix.
