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-Mar-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

An alternative version of TKU March 2016, incompatible with BMC Discovery version 11.0,  was released with 11.0.0.1 (patch 1). If you are running BMC Discovery version 11.0 you must upgrade to 11.0.0.1 (patch 1) or later to use TKU April 2016 and subsequent releases.

Release Compatibility

TKU 2016-Mar-1 is released in the following streams:

  • Release compatible with BMC Atrium Discovery 10.x series
  • Release compatible with BMC Discovery 11.x series

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.

 More about new clustering technologies and clustering models you may find here.
