    BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2016-Nov-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 10.0, 10.110.2 and BMC Discovery 11.0, 11.1 series.

    Extended Discovery

    Since October 2016 we have documented the list of "Extended Discovery" patterns here. These patterns are used for in-depth discovery and often have associated configurations which are described in the documentation. Please use the documentation to take full advantage of these Extended Discovery patterns.

    Command/File Matrix

    The Command/File Matrix file (covering ALL commands executed and ALL files retrieved by the patterns) has been enhanced and is now being shipped in the modern Microsoft Excel format of .xlsx rather than the older .xls.
    From TKU August 2016 onwards, it is downloadable from Configipedia only. See below at the bottom.
    The command/file matrix main documentation is accessible from the Got a Problem to Solve? page or directly from here.

    Release Compatibility

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

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


    Customers can access this TKU release from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution Website. If you are a customer or partner and do not already have a login please contact your BMC account manager.

    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.


    Enhanced Pattern Modules

    For details of why the SI Key Change field is important please see this documentation.
