Bugs Fixed

The following bugs have been fixed in Tideway Knowledge Update 2008-Sep-1.

Case No Defect No Details Pattern Module
13077 10515

*Problem:*Sybase ASE Database Server pattern in Sybase ASE module may not trigger in situations where '-e' command-line argument is not present and '-s' command-line argument is followed by a space before the server name.

Resolution: Pattern updated in TKU-2008-Sep-1. The pattern trigger regex now handles the situation where there is no whitespace between the '-s' attribute and the server instance name. Apart from the trigger, the Simple Identifier has been updated as well as the regular expression that extracts the Database Server instance name.

Sybase.SybaseASE

13288 10542

*Problem:*Microsoft SQL Server pattern does not have version mapping for certain builds of SQL Server.

Resolution: Pattern updated in TKU-2008-Sep-1. Mapping table for versions updated with additional long version numbers.

Microsoft.SQLServer

N/A 10448

*Problem:*Java VM pattern will sometimes get the version incorrect when the following
occurs:

  • Publisher cannot be determined (but is in fact IBM)
  • '-fullversion' option succeeds

If the publisher is 'IBM' the output needs to be parsed slightly differently, but a generic regular expression match is used which picks up the version incorrectly.

Resolution: Pattern updated in TKU-2008-Sep-1. Parsing of output of 'java -fullversion' expects at least major.minor version to be returned.

JavaVM

New Active Commands

The following active commands are new in this release:
IBM Tivoli Access Manager for eBusiness

      • Active command to obtain the full product version: <abs. path to trigger process>/pdversion

IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Operating Systems

  • Module: IBM.Tivoli.AccessManager.OperatingSystems
    • Pattern: TivoliAccessManagement_OperatingSystems
      • Active command to obtain the full product version: <abs. path to trigger process>/pdosversion

IBM Rational ClearCase

  • Module: IBM.Rational.ClearCase
    • Pattern: LocationBroker
      • Active command to output license information (Atria licensing): <abs. path to trigger process>/clearlicense or <abs. path to trigger process>\clearlicense.exe

Notes

If you have chosen not to delete the Software Instances created using a previous TKU, for any pattern where the SI key has changed, any host where the above software instances were created will have another set of software instances created following installation of a newer TKU and re-scan. The software instances created by the previous TKU patterns will disappear once they have aged out (see Tideway Foundation documentation for description of SI aging).
