BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2020-Jul-1 is a deliverable for BMC Discovery 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3, and 12.0 series.

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.

Cisco UCS discovery update

Cisco UCS are modeled as HostContainer in Discovery and exported as BMC_ComputerSystem in CMDB. Their names were not unique, which was causing some trouble in the CMDB. Now to prevent the issue, Serial Number value is used in the name attribute.

Release Compatibility

TKU 2020-Jul-1 is released in the following streams:

  • Release compatible with BMC Discovery 11.x series.
  • Release compatible with BMC Discovery 12.0 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.

Check out this guideline if you are unsure how to download from BMC EPD site.
