BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2015-Nov-2 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 9.0, 10.010.1, and 10.2 series.

TKU 2015-Nov-2 is a re-release of Technology Knowledge Update November 2015 which fixes two major TKU for Storage issues: "ECA Error" in the Windows_Storage and Linux_Storage patterns (QM001889855 and QM001888582 respectively). Those issues were identified in the original TKU for Storage October and November 2015 releases.

If you have already installed the original version of the Technology Knowledge Update for November 2015, it is strongly recommended that you install and activate this re-release and then remove the previous version from the appliance

Note

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.
