BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2019-Jul-1 is a deliverable for BMC Discovery 11.0, 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3 series.

From this month onward, the TKU and OSU releases will be made available on EPD on the first Wednesday of the month. As a result of this transition there will be no June TKU. All the June TKU release content will instead be called July 2019 TKU release.

Product content updates require appliance restart

This TKU release contains product content additions. When product content is added, the appliance is restarted as part of the update. You are given the opportunity to prevent the restart, though if you do so, none of the knowledge content will be installed.

Please be aware that in TKU 2019-July-1 release the key attribute has been changed for IBM WAS Deployment Manager SI in IBM WebSphere Application Server pattern. (DRDC1-13134)

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 does not 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.
