BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2017-Jun-1 is a deliverable for BMC Atrium Discovery 10.1, 10.2 and BMC Discovery 11.0, 11.1 series.
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.
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.
CMDB Sync mapping update
From TKU June 2017 and onward LoadBalancerInstance can be related to SoftwareInstance in addition to NetworkDevice. That will be used in conjunction with the TKU pattern for HA Proxy(software load balancer), which is expected to be released soon(TKU August or TKU September). For more information about the CDM mapping please visit the product documentation: Default CDM Mapping.
TKU 2017-Jun-1 is released in the following streams:
