Issue: BMC Remedy ARSystem Close Window actions malfunction when mid tier 7.x is used with IE 8

August 20th, 2010

BMC Software is alerting users to a problem in version 7.x of the BMC Remedy Mid Tier product. This technical bulletin describes a fix to prevent the problem from occurring. If you have questions about the problem, contact BMC Software Customer Support at 800 537 1813 (United States or Canada) or call your local support center.

When BMC Remedy Mid Tier 7.x is used with Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 (IE 8), Close Window actions in active links do not work in the mid tier. This problem is caused by a known IE 8 defect (Microsoft case number 109092371502252). To fix this problem, install the Microsoft cumulative security update for Internet Explorer discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-018 (see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS10-018.mspx).

For information about the history.length property issue that caused the Close Window problem, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979926/. To verify whether the update is already installed on your computer, check the Add or Remove Programs list in your Control Panel. (This update fixes a DLL, so it does not change the version numbers in the Help > About Internet Explorer window.)

To fix the problem without applying the cumulative update. If you do not apply the cumulative update, use the following workaround to avoid
the problem:
1 In Internet Explorer 8, choose Tools > Internet Options.
2 On the Advanced tab, clear the Enable Automatic Crash Recovery check box.
3 Restart Internet Explorer 8.
For information about Automatic Crash Recovery and the effects of disabling it, see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/privacy.aspx#features.

How to debug CMDB 7.5 Change Pending Issues

OVERVIEW:  CLASS Manager Activity. If a particular activity stays in Change Pending state for a long time you can investigate the root cause by following the steps mentioned in the document.

To resolve this problem you need to validate  CMDB metadata problems. We need to check some of the forms which may have pending entries for classes, attributes for which class manager do not show pending entries.

LOGIN with Administrator previlege:

This is a brief descriptions of the points to check:

– WUT: Login as Demo and check the CMDB metadata. Check each record is active, unique and it’s correct.

STEPS:

The forms to check and fix are:

Step1: Class (OBJSTR:Class)  -> Check there is NOT pending entries (No entries where ‘System Status*’ !=  “Active” )

Fix: If there are not active entries, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them.

1.a Check Class (OBJSTR:Class)  again where ‘Pending ID’ != “0” OR ‘OSStatus’ != “Active”

Fix: If there are entries with Pending ID != 0, you have to investigate this problem carefully.

Step 2: Attribute Definitions (OBJSTR:AttributeDefinition) -> Check there is NOT pending entries (No entries where ‘Record Status’ != “Active”)

Fix: If there are not active entries, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them.

**

Step 3: OBJSTR:Index (OBJSTR:Index) -> Check there is NOT pending entries (No entries where ‘Record Status’ != “Active”)

Fix: If there are NOT active entries, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them.

Step 4: OBJSTR:IndexAttrib (OBJSTR:IndexAttrib) -> Check there is NOT pending entries (No entries where ‘Record Status’ != “Active”)

Fix: If there are not active entries, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them.

***

Step 5: OBJSTR:Pending -> Check there are not errors here.

Fix: If there are errors, please read them and fix the problem. Otherwise, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them.

Step 6: Application Pending -> Check there are not entries waiting processing here.

Fix: Wait until all the entries are deleted. If they are not deleted, to fix the problem, you need to backup those entries on arx format and delete them manually.
