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

The January 2014 TKU includes changes to the CMDB Sync mapping

  • 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-Jan-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 (ships with this release)

Contents

The release comprises components packaged as two entities:

  • BMC Atrium Discovery Extended Data Pack, which is a separately licensable product.
    • Product Lifecycle - Patterns that populate Atrium Discovery with information about End-of-Life, End-of-Support, and End-of-Extended-Support for versions of certain host Operating Systems as well as versions of certain software products
    • Hardware Reference Data - Patterns and data import CSV file that populate Atrium Discovery with power and heat consumption figures for various hosts.

Installation and Upgrade

  • Atrium Discovery 8.3.00 - Installation and upgrade instructions are provided here
  • Atrium Discovery 9.0.00 - Installation and upgrade instructions are provided here

A matrix covering ALL commands executed and ALL files retrieved by the patterns is available to our customers from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution Website. The filename is TKU_Command_File_Matrix-2014-01-1.xls

Defects Resolved

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

Defect No Details Product Page
QM001808424 Problem: Not able to discover Microsoft Exchange Server Cluster. Exchange 2013 pattern does not identify all servers. Specifically, it does not identify the "client access" server (CAS role). Solution: Code update. Pattern has been split into two to obtain Database Availability Groups variant on installation.

Microsoft Exchange Server

#TKU-1507 Problem: BMC ProactiveNet Analytics Server pattern code to create Detail nodes for each installed monitor merges information from multiple monitors with similar name into a single Detail node due to the way it parses output of the command that provides listing of installed monitors. Solution: Code fix. Parsing of the output improved. Furthermore, Detail nodes are no longer created by default as this could lead to performance degradation due to potentially a very high number of nodes being created. List of installed monitors is stored as an attribute on the SI instead.

BMC ProactiveNet Analytics

#TKU-1558 Problem: IBM Rational Software Analyzer Server pattern has a weak trigger condition. Solution: Code fix. Trigger condition improved.

IBM Rational Software Analyzer

#TKU-2025 Problem: IBM Domino Server pattern for Windows platform should set 'install_dir' attribute on the created SI to support discovery of IBM Lotus Quickr. Solution: Code fix.

IBM Notes and Domino

#TKU-2034 Problem: Microsoft Lync Server Application Components are currently modelled as software instances but should be modelled as software components. Solution: Pattern updated.

Microsoft Office Communications Server
Microsoft Lync Server

#TKU-2045 An issue with the code to create a relationship between Oracle Business Process Management SI and related software instances was resolved.

Oracle Business Process Management

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_ComputerSystem CIs mapped from HostContainer nodes. Solution: TokenId is now populated for these CIs with unique enough values.
