Bugs Fixed

The following bugs have been fixed in Tideway Knowledge Update 2009-Apr-1

Case No Defect No Details Pattern Module
18939 11580 Symantec VERITAS NetBackup pattern did not include the latest product package name for versioning purposes and new releases of NetBackup on Solaris platform were not being versioned. New package name 'SYMCnetbp' added to the list of packages to check for.

Symantec.VERITAS.NetBackup

N/A 11614 Oracle RDBMS pattern was failing to identify certain Oracle 11g processes as being associated to the Oracle RDBMS. Simple identifiers have been created for these processes, and the pattern now associates them with appropriate Oracle RDBMS instances.

Oracle.OracleRDBMS

19083 11625 Oracle TimesTen pattern could interpret an error result from active version command as actual version of the product. The versioning regular expression would interpret any number returned as a version. Versioning Regular expression has now been improved.

Oracle.TimesTen

19472 11756 Microsoft Project Server pattern could fail with an ECA Engine Error if it triggers on existence of Microsoft Project Server but fails to locate a package associated with the product. Pattern updated to handle gracefully the above scenario.

Microsoft.ProjectServer
