BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2015-May-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 9.0, 10.0, 10.1, and 10.2 series.


In TKU March 2015, privileged execution configuration using the pattern configuration files is deprecated. It is recommended to use the BMC Atrium Discovery platform configuration instead. Previous TKU releases introduced some important changes to the CMDB Sync mapping and Oracle Database modeling.

Release Compatibility

TKU 2015-May-1 is released in the following streams:

  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 9.x series
  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 10.x series
