A software cluster in BMC Discovery represents a "self-clustering" grouping of one or more logical hosts into a logical group. "Self-clustering" software is software that provides its own clustering capability, for example, BMC Discovery clusters. Self-clustering software is modeled using a Software Cluster node, which acts as a logical container for the Software Instances (SIs) representing the software running on individual hosts.
All software cluster objects are set up automatically by the BMC Discovery process.
The following topics are covered in this section:
To view a software cluster

- In the Software & Databases section, click Software Clusters.
- Select a software cluster from the list.
The details of the software cluster that you selected are displayed in a new page, as displayed in the following screenshot.
The information fields for a typical cluster are described in the following table:
Name of this cluster.
Type of cluster, for example, BMC Discovery Cluster.
|Full Version||The full version of the cluster. For example, 10.2.90.4.574861.rhel6.dev.|
|Product Version||The product version of the cluster. For example, 10.2.|
