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

The May 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.

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

  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 8.3 series
