BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2014-Apr-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3, 9.0 and 10.0series.

The April 2014 TKU includes changes to the CMDB Sync mapping (introduced between TKU Jan 2014 and TKU Mar 2014)

  • When you synchronize with the CMDB the first time, the BMC_ComputerSystem CIs mapped from partition Host nodes are updated and their PartitionIds are set.
  • During data synchronization to the CMDB, FunctionalComponent nodes representing CAM Functional Components are mapped to BMC_ConcreteCollection CIs.
  • When you synchronize with the CMDB the first time, the BMC_ComputerSystem CIs mapped from HostContainer nodes are updated and their TokenIds are set.
  • When you synchronize with the CMDB the first time, all BMC_ApplicationService CIs are updated and their TokenIds are set.

Release Compatibility

TKU 2014-Apr-1 is released in three streams:

  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3 series
  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 9.0 series
  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 10.0 series

Defects Resolved

The following defects have been fixed in BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2014-Apr-1

 

Defect No Details Product Page
QM001815276 Problem: BMC Atrium Discovery pattern fails to correctly extract information in a scanner / consolidator setup. Solution: Code fix. Certain information will only be available with BMC Atrium Discovery 9.0 SP3

BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping

QM001822694 Problem: Build number may contain end of line characters Solution: Code fix. Improved parsing of version information

Sun Java System Directory Server

QM001822936 Problem: Sybase ASE Database Server pattern can incorrectly extract the install path, preventing extended Sybase ASE discovery pattern from working Solution: Code fix, improved installation path extraction.

Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise

QM001823211 / QM001823273 Problem: Parsing of configuration files by the Apache Web Server extended discovery pattern can fail leading to information about websites not being collected Solution: Code fix - improved parsing of configuration files

Apache HTTPD-based Webservers - Extended Discovery Pattern

QM001823583 Problem: Pattern in the Oracle VM VirtualBox module that creates a relationship from the SI to the virtual host can exit with an ECA engine error. Solution: Code fix.

Oracle VM VirtualBox

QM001823647

Problem: Pattern that creates an Aggregated Software Instance in the BMC TM ART module has an incorrect key leading to it collecting SIs accross hosts

Solution: SI key updated to resolve the issue.

BMC Transaction Management Application Response Time

QM001823880 Problem: BMC_MFSoftwareServer/BMC_SoftwareServer.ManufacturerName is not set in case of Mainframe. ManufacturerName is important for normalization in CMDB. The publisher information seems to be consistently and correctly set in DiscoveredSoftware.vendor and the mainframe pattern sets this value to SoftwareInstance.publisher. The syncmapping pattern should map SoftwareInstance.publisher to BMC_MFSoftwareServer/BMC_SoftwareServer.ManufacturerName. Solution: Sync mapping updated

ADDM - CMDB sync mappings

QM001824101 Problem: IBM WebSphere Process Server can incorrectly identify the product as present on hosts where it is not installed. Solution: Code fix - false positive checking improved.

IBM WebSphere Process Server

QM001824281 Problem: Oracle Clusterware can include end of line character in the cluster ID information due to incorrect parsing of the data Solution: Code fix. Parsing of cluster ID improved.
