DDMI 7.61 Available Now! - my first post ever!

I was thinking about what my first blog entry should be…I always believe I have much to learn from others, so perhaps this is a good ice breaker for me.


I would like to let you know that HP has recently released Discovery and Dependency Mapping Inventory (DDMI) 7.61.  This is a maintenance release and a follow up to the 7.60 release, meaning it is focused on small changes and product fixes for issues found since the 7.60 release.  If you are a DDMI customer, with a valid support contract, you can download it from our Software Support Portal by choosing Patch Download option.


In this release we have added:


-          Agent and scanner support for Microsoft Windows 7


-          Agent and scanner support for Microsoft Windows 2008 R2


-          Agent and scanner support for MAC OS 10.6


-          Enhancement to the SAI editor which allows you to separately see Package rules and Version Data rules that exist in the SAI.  This makes it easier to work with rule-based SAI entries, available since the 7.60 release.


-          Support for autofs file systems on Linux and UNIX systems.  This allows you to configure scanner to exclude auto-mounted file systems, which will reduce the amount of time to complete a scan, eliminate “looping” (some customers have reported that scan files effectively “hang”, since they can never complete the scan).  This means scans will be smaller and complete faster.


-          Identification of Primary IP address of a device.  This allows DDMI to consistently select the same interface when identifying and communicating with the device.


-          Improves identification of new CPU types.


-          Support for SMBIOS 2.6.1


Since Discovery and Dependence Mapping for Inventory (DDMI) is a product that interacts with target devices, it is important to keep it up to date.  I recommend that customers take advantage of the latest capabilities by upgrading their installations to the current release.  Our product team works to ensure that upgrades are highly automated to minimize possible disruptions in production environments.

We have purchased DDMi, HP Asset Manager and SM7.   We were thinking about installing and implementing DDMi first as the base.  Any suggestions you can offer on implementation?
