    The June 2014 TKU includes changes to the CMDB Sync mapping

    • 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.
    • When you synchronize with the CMDB the first time, the BMC_ComputerSystem CIs mapped from Cisco Nexus NetworkDevice nodes are updated and their PartitionIds are set (data only discovered with ADDM 9.0 SP3).

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

    • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3 series
