BMC Discovery Technology Knowledge Update 2020-Nov-1 is a deliverable for BMC Discovery 11.3, 12.0 and 20.08 series.
Product content updates require appliance restart
Cisco UCS discovery update
CMDB Sync mapping updates
Important Note for Discovery 20.02 (12.0) Customers Only:
Mapping files for synchronization to ServiceNow CMDB
The mapping files for synchronization to ServiceNow CMDB released with the previous version of BMC Discovery no longer work with the updated sync for ServiceNow CMDB. New mapping files are available from EPD. However, to ensure correct operation, you must use the following procedure:
Restart the cmdb_sync_transformer service. As the tideway user, enter:
tw_service_control --restart cmdb_sync_transformer
BMC_Document CIs attributes
In this TKU release, we have introduced a new sync mapping pattern that maps Detail nodes with type "TLS Certificate" to the BMC_Document CIs. This mapping is enabled by default, and could add additional data to the CMDB. For more information, see CDM Mapping for Host.
TKU 2020-Nov-1 is released in the following streams:
