    Please note that starting from version 11.0.x the product BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping changes its name into BMC Discovery.

     

    BMC Atrium Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2016-Feb-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 10.0, 10.110.2 and BMC Discovery 11.0 series.

     

    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.

    Note

    IBM DB2 Extended Discovery pattern update (key change)

    The DatabasesAndTables pattern in the IBM DB2 Extended Discovery pattern module comes with a key change on all DatabaseDetail nodes this pattern creates. This may impact your CMDB data. To avoid this issue (assuming you have not upgraded to TKU Feb yet), please wait until TKU March which is scheduled to be released during the last week of March 2016.

    Enhanced Pattern Modules for Cluster Awareness in BMC Discovery 11.x series

    BMC Discovery 11.0.x  introduces a new extended cluster discovery. 

    Cluster Modeling approaches and Key changes:

    1. Clustering Platform  that generate a Cluster Node. In most cases the Key doesn’t change.
    2. Clustered Software.  In previous releases, the SIs were modeled running on Host nodes.  Now, if they are running on a cluster, they are modeled running on the Cluster node .That means that instances of these products that run on clusters have changed Keys. Instances that do not run on clusters do not have changed Keys.
    3. Software Performing Clustering - products that implement their own Clustering Scheme without using a Clustering Platform. In general, the SoftwareCluster is given the same Key that was previously given to the SoftwareInstance.
