    The Microsoft Windows Domain Services 1.7.10.01 patch corrects issues reported in earlier versions of Microsoft Windows Domain Services. For more information about issue corrected in this patch, see Known and corrected issues.

    This topic contains information about fixes and updates in this patch, and provides instructions for downloading and installing the patch.

    Updates in the 1.7.10.01 patch

    The Microsoft Windows Domain Services 1.7.10.01 patch includes the following updates:

    New parameter to address collection errors associated with SNMP for DHCP scope

    The DhCollStatus parameter in the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) application class will report any collection errors related to SNMP for DHCP scope. This parameter will trigger events in case of collection failures.

    The DhCollStatus parameter is not available for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 as Windows Management Infrastructure (MI) is used for DHCP scope collection.

    Community Idea - 10297: New PATROL configuration variable for SNMP Permitted Manager

    A new PATROL configuration variable, /DomainKM/Domain/PermittedManager, has been introduced that provides a way to set the permitted host for SNMP. For more information, see PATROL KM for Microsoft Windows Domain Services configuration variables.

    Deprecated features

    The data collection mechanism of the parameters of DHCP Scope (NT_DHCP_SCOPE) application class has been moved from DhsCollector parameter to DhCollector parameter. The DhsCollector parameter has been deprecated.

    Rules applied on the DhsCollector parameter will fail.

    Downloading the patch and installation utility

    This section provides the information that you need to download and install the patch from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) website. To download the patch and installation utility from the EPD website, perform the following steps:
