CA Technologies, a Broadcom company is pleased to announce General Availability (GA) of the CA Spectrum® Device Certification Packs for the supported base GA releases r10.2.3 and r10.3.0
These new Device Certification Packs are cumulative patches that consist of new and updated simple device certifications based on customer requirements. Previously, device certifications were delivered along with the new releases of CA Spectrum. With our new initiative, our customers can leverage the benefits of newly certified devices on their current install base without upgrading to the latest GA release.
It is strongly recommended that you refer to the Release Notes available with the Device Certification Pack to understand and be aware of any specific requirements that might be applicable to your environment. If you have related questions or need clarifications for specifics called out in the Device Certification Pack document, please contact your local support team. We’ve also created a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document to help proactively answer your questions.
Updates included in CA Spectrum® Device Certification Packs
Each Device Certification Pack has its own Release Note, here you can review a list of the newly certified devices. Each also include these major components:
The xml files which contain Spectrum modelling database changes for the certifications which are imported into the Spectrum modelling database via Model Type Editor.
A NewMM.pl script is included and will need to be run after installing the pack.
New Trap support, AlertMAP, EventDisp, Pcause and EventFormat files.
Event Table files.
