Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes:

After upgrading existing OME 1.1.x or OME 1.0.x to OME 1.2 version, users may see an issue with compliant systems report, some of the components may show up as non-compliant. Installing 1.2.1 will clean up the catalog data tables safely.

NOTE: After installing the 1.2.1 patch users have to import a new catalog.

- If customer has a ESXi 5.x cluster setup where the ESXi host keeps sending multiple CIMOM heartbeat SNMP alert, sometimes it may result in OME stopping the alerts reception after few hours or days. In this scenario, the discovery and status poll may works fine. If the alerts continue for a long time, it may result in Network monitoring service stop functioning completely.

- OME users are not able to update a non-PCI components firmware on iDRAC 12G with version 1.40.40 and above using OME 1.2 console.

- OME users in rare conditions end up running update tasks without any target systems associated. This will result in a task failure with details as below.

- The task has failed because the device selected as a target does not support this type of task. For a detailed reference of what tasks can be run against specific devices and discovery methods, Refer to the Managing Remote Tasks section in the user guide. Also check if Dell OpenManage BMC Utilities are installed.

After applying the OME 1.2.1 patch the update tasks can be created and executed successfully without this error.
