This documentation refers to a previously released version of BMC Discovery.
See the information on this topic for the latest version (11.3) or version 11.2.

The tw_check_reports_model utility enables you to check custom reports for the following:

  • Attributes marked as deprecated in the taxonomy
  • Key expressions and traversals between Subnet nodes and Network Interface nodes. Subnet nodes are now related to IP Address nodes so these key expressions and traversals no longer exist.
  • Usage of ip_addr, netmask, and broadcast attributes on Network Interface nodes. These attributes have been moved to IP Address nodes.

The utility is primarily intended for the upgrade to BMC Discovery 9.0, but it can also be used outside the upgrade. The username and password to supply for this utility are those of a UI user, such as the system user.

To use the utility, type the following command:

tw_check_reports_model [options] 

where options are any of the common arguments described in Using command line utilities.

User example

The following example checks custom reports as the system user. No password is entered so the utility prompts for a password which is not echoed when entered.
