NetIQ AppManager 7.0.x
NetIQ AppManager for HP System Insight Manager (CIM)
CIM_NICFail and CIM_NICError Knowledge Scripts report errors when run on objects with virtual interfaces .
Cannot report data from some jobs using NetIQ Analysis Center.
Why Install this Release?
This release of AppManager for HP Systems Insight Manager resolves the following issues:
- Discovery fails when RIB battery serial number is invalid. This release addresses an issue where the SNMP query to obtain the serial number of a Routing Information Base (RIB) battery returns an invalid character, which causes the discovery job to fail with the error A string literal was not enclosed. With this release, the discovery handles the invalid character and completes successfully. (ENG304029)
- CIM_NICFail and CIM_NICError Knowledge Scripts report errors when run on objects with virtual interfaces. This release addresses an issue where Discovery_CIM discovered interfaces not associated with NIC cards, called virtual interfaces, which are provided in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. CIM_NICFail and CIM_NICError Knowledge Script jobs that run on these virtual interface objects report errors due to the fact that a NIC card must be present for those Knowledge Scripts to run and report useful information. With this release, discovering the virtual interfaces is optional. The behavior of the module changes with this release by only monitoring physical interfaces by default. If you want to display virtual interfaces in the TreeView, set the Discovery_CIM Discover only physical interfaces? parameter to no. If the parameter is set to yes, extra objects might appear in the console TreeView with null or undefined labels. These extra objects do not interfere with the way the module works. After you install this release, you must recreate any CIM_NICFail and CIM_NICError jobs on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers. (ENG305056)
- Cannot report data from some jobs using NetIQ Analysis Center. This release addresses an issue where Analysis Center did not display data from some Knowledge Scripts. (ENG310753)
