Bi-Monthly Patch(BMP) is a bundle of PTF patches available on top of a
SpectrumBMPs are released in every two months cadence on a regular schedule.
SpectrumBi-Monthly Packs are self-extracting install files for each of the supported operating systems. The BMP must be installed on both the SpectroSERVER and OneClick server. For installation and uninstall instructions, refer to the Release Notes of the BMP.
The BMP is built for the current release of
Spectrumand includes all PTF patches available on top of it. The BMP must be installed on both the SpectroSERVER and OneClick server. For installation and uninstall instructions, refer to the Release Notes of the BMP. The BMP includes the fixes for the following defects:

10.3.2_BMP_10.3.201pack is built for the current release of
Spectrumand includes all PTF patches available on top of
Spectrum10.3.2. The BMP must be installed on both the SpectroSERVER and OneClick server. For installation and uninstall instructions, refer to the Release Notes of the BMP.The
10.3.2_BMP_10.3.201includes the fixes for the following defects:
Symptom:Translated enterprise traps from v2 to v1 and v3 to v1 were processed as unknown traps. Trap port for SpectroSERVER (SS) and Secure Domain Connector (SDC) are on same machine and hence was not supported.
Resolution:Translated enterprise traps from v2 to v1 and v3 to v1 is now identified appropriately. Hosting SS and SDC on same machine is supported now when the Trap port is different for SS and SDC.
Host Finderlocator search is missing under Locator Tab, Devices after upgrading to current version.
Resolution:The new Search Criteria ID in the topo-app-config.xml lets you find the Host Finder. The
Host Finderis displayed under the Locator Tab, Devices
Symptom:I see an error Duplicate column name 'last_updated_time' in schema update after upgrading to current version and SRM does not start.
Spectrumnow checks and avoids duplicate entry in the last_update_time column.
Symptom:Resolved pipes turn black after some time in topology view
Resolution:Resolved pipes no longer turn black.
Symptom:Duplicate PhysicalHOST_NimsoftVmwareRedirector models created during synchronization with can CA UIM.
Resolution:Disable the existing CA UIM integration and re-enable the integration which removes the existing CA UIM models.
Spectrumnow checks for the duplicates before updating the PhysicalHOST_NimsoftVmwareRedirector models.
Symptom:Jasper report "Current Port Summary Group" does not display custom logo image.
Resolution:Post Installation of
SpectrumRe-deploy the <integration>.
Symptom:Availability Group report throws error when the common jar ca_customerMethods.jar and the spectrum_utils.jar are in the Jasper server.
Resolution:Availability Group report works fine even if both the jars are in the Jasper server.
Symptom:The Attribute Value dropdown does not show Secure Domain Manager and trapx values for Attribute Secure Domain (0x12d83) in Locator Search Dialog.
Resolution:The Attribute Value dropdown now shows all Secure Domain Manager and trapx values for Attribute Secure Domain (0x12d83) in Locator Search Dialog.
Symptom:After reconfiguration duplicate stale modules still exist in the Interface Tab even after PortAgeOutTime expires.
Resolution:Duplicate stale modules are removed once the PortAgeOutTime expires.
Symptom:The SNMP v3 Profiles does not retain the authentication password sometimes. The AuthPassword and PrivPassword are separated using the '^' character and it conflicts with the use of '^' in the password.
Spectrumnow identifies the first occurance of the '^' character to identify the AuthPassword and PrivPassword.
Symptom:The XML does not comply to the expected grammar error message in VNM.out while searching for the models with Virtual entity unique ID
Resolution:Handled the error scenarios for XML grimmer in
Spectrum-UIM integration while searching for the models with Virtual entity unique ID
Symptom:Access Points modelled as SNMP shows the default values for SDN_OperationalStatus & SDN_AdminStatus
Resolution:Correct values of SDN_OperationalStatus & SDN_AdminStatus are displayed
Symptom:MPLS Transport Manager does not model Nokia SR-OS devices.
SpectrumMPLS Transport Manager is not enhanced to model Nokia SR-OS devices.
Symptom: Connections are not discovered between when a different version of LLDP like LLDPv1 and LLDPv2 are neighbors.
Spectrumis now enhanced to discover connections between different versions of LLDP neighbors.
Symptom: SpectroSERVER Crashes when huge REST query receives from OneClick server.
Resolution: SpectroSERVER does not Crashes and shows an
Error.SearchQueryCombinationsExceedStackProcessingSizeerror to OneClick server when huge REST query receives.
Symptom:Information Tab does not display any information with
Spectrum10.3.2. The Information Tab stays empty for ever for Cisco ASR routers which are having large IPRouteTable.
Spectrumis now enhanced to read the scalar attribute rather than the list attribute.
Symptom:Incomplete NCM backup for device in Cisco IOS.
Resolution:Open the <$SPECROOT>/SPECTRUM/SS/.vnmrc file. Add set ncm_tftp_wait property and ncm_startup_wait property with values between one second and four second.
For Example:set ncm_tftp_wait=1 and ncm_startup_wait=1
Symptom:SNMP devices modeled using Auto-Discovery method are not discovered. Even if VNA integration is enabled the auto-discovered models do not reconcile with VNA integration data. Entities for virtual interfaces & tunnel, and so on, coming from VNA are not created in the SpectroSERVER.
Spectrumnow supports reconciliation of interfaces to consider models created by Auto-Discovery.
Symptom:NewMM.pl is not converting GnSNMPDev model type to AdvaDev
Resolution:Due to memory access violation when accessing the object, the conversion of the model type from one other failed. An updated script in this patch converts the device model type successfully.
Symptom:When a site model does not exist or cannot be read from MIB,
VpnDiscovery.cc(1947): Interface name Rsp error ignoring 0was printed in VNM.out
Resolution:The logging of the warning message in VNM.OUT is diabled now while creating the site model.
Symptom:Users are able to modify watches using double-click on the watch, even if they do not have privilege.
Resolution:Now, users need appropriate privileges to modify watches.
Symptom:Black connections appear between containers even when there is no connection.
Resolution:Run the action 0x10900 on the VNM landscape handle to remove such black pipes.
Symptom:Model Type BrocadeNos wrongly sets attribute modelclass to SNMP.
Resolution:Devices are now modeled as a switch instead of SNMP.
Symptom:Needed a fix to raise alarm on systemedge itself with the custom format.
Resolution:Now you can raise an alarm on systemEdge itself when you pass domainname followed by date and time.
Symptom:DC Migration list and VCDCDomainList attribute of UIM Manager are empty.
Spectrumre-populate the DC list in next VM sync. Additional checks stop two syncs running at the same time and overiding the dc list.
Symptom:After migration of the data center of a vCenter, the new data center which is received in next sync is modeled under vCenter of migrated landscape.
Spectrumnow models the migrated data center which is received in next sync in its original landscape.
Symptom:Neighbors are not correctly displayed in the neighbors tab for WA_Link models.
Resolution:Neighbor models are now correctly displayed in the neighbors tab for WA_Link models.
Symptom:Error while running Jasper report "Current Ports Detail: All" due to component_OID
Resolution:Jasper report "Current Ports Detail: All" is fixed to treat component_OID as a string instead of float.
Symptom:NCM bucket processing failed with null pointer exception.
Resolution:The NCM buckets gets processed without any exceptions or errors in tomcat log.
Symptom:I can see additional connections created due to LACP.
Resolution:Make LACP connections discovery as configurable. By default the behavior is true that is LACP connections is discovered by default.
Symptom:There is huge thread count increase.
Resolution:Threads are created only when the contact status is not equal to established, and threads wait to receive a message only once.
Symptom:Device discovery using IPv6 address causes SpectroSERVER to crash.
Resolution:The fix avoids access violation while discovering IPv6 address and thereby SpectroSERVER does not crash.
Spectrum-UIM Integration, when UIM models are removed from group, VMware sync delta processing is not detecting the model removed from group and retaining it in inventory.
Resolution:VMware sync delta processing now detects the model removed from group and moves the model to unreported inventory.
