WebSphere Application Server Liberty has been updated to version 20.0.0.9

Apache Ant(TM) version 1.9.15
IBM Installation Manager 1.9.1.3 (packaged in the Refresh Full installers)
See below list of deprecated or disabled components in FP20.
Deprecated support:
1. IBM Connections integration support
2. Jabber support for 3rd party extensions
Refer to this published document:

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6347586
Disabled components:
- Starting in FP20, the "Event Isolation and Correlation" is disabled
by default. Refer to this page for more information:
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6357077

2.3 Enhancements in Fix Pack 20
Fix Pack 20 includes the following enhancements:

- IJ24681: BYPASSING SSL CERTIFICATE FOR GETHTTP AND RESTFULAPIXXX FUNCTIONS
A new property for the GetHTTP and RESTful API function, TrustCertificate was added. If set to true, it will automatically trust the SSL connection without the need to import the certificate chain into the truststore.
-  IJ24953: SEASONALITY RULES SHOULD NOT USE HISTORY ANALYSIS COLUMN
Starting with FP20, the Seasonality rule is fired when incoming events match rules based on the Event Identity fields. Previously the field set in the configuration property, history_column_names_analysis, was used for matching events. By default, this column was set to Summary.The use of Summary no longer applies as the Event Identity is used by the configuration run to determine Seasonal events. By default, Event Identity
is set to Identifier.
- IJ25710: SHOW THE LAST UPDATE/RUN TIME FOR CONFIGURATIONS ON THE CONFIGURE ANALYTICS SCREEN
Knowing when a Related Event or Seasonality configuration was last run is useful information for an Event Analytics operator. It was not possible to see when a configuration was last run from the Configure Analytics screen.
Development APAR IJ25710 adds four new fields to Configuration Analytics results,
- IJ26286: DON'T CREATE GROUP EVENTS WHEN EVENTS HAVE MULTIPLE EVENT TYPES
Starting with FP20, a Related Events Configuration run will no longer be created Related Events with multiple Event Types.
It has always been expected
that the Event Type field was set as such so as to be unique per Event
Identity. In the past, the system warned if this was not the case, but did not prevent the Related Events from being created.
To check old runs for
existing group events and patterns which, multiple event types per event, run the following steps:
1. Use the SQL in the file : add-ons/NOI/db/noi_derby_find_events_with_multiple_event_types.sql to search for existing Groups/Patterns
with Events with multiple
Identifiers.

2. Before running, adjust the connect string in the sql file, as appropriate.
3. The file can be run using the command line: $IMPACT_HOME/bin/nci_db connect.
4. If the above returns any rows, then move the affected Patterns to the New state. If there are any affected Groups not allocated to a
Pattern these
should also be moved.
5. Then re-run the configuration.

3.0 Troubleshooting Netcool Impact 7.1 > General issues
- You now can (if needed) reset the Derby DB to a default state (in a NOI installation); by using the following steps:
1.Find appropriately named ImpactDB_NOI_FP20.zip file located in $IMPACT_HOME/install/dbcore.
2.Stop all ImpactServers in the cluster (primary and secondary that run Derby DB).
3.Backup/Remove the existing ImpactDB directory structure in $IMPACT_HOME/db/<ServerName>/derby.
4.Copy the .zip file found in step 1 to $IMPACT_HOME/db/<ServerName>/derby and extract it.
5.Start Impact Server primary, let it fully initialize and start, and now start secondary server and let it re-sync from the primary.
- Enabling LDAP Authentication

When editing the $IMPACT_HOME/install/security/impactdap.properties before enabling LDAP Authentication, ensure the version of the impactdap.properties
is from the latest install!
* Do not copy a props file from a different/older Fix Pack.
* Ensure to only edit the properties, do not delete/remove any of the properties before running the
$IMPACT_HOME/install/security/confAuth4LDAP.sh script
 

4.0 Known Issues in Fix Pack 20
- The following applies only to Netcool/Impact Clients with Netcool Operations Insight (NOI) - and only for those with Existing configurations:
After upgrading to Netcool/Impact 7.1.0 FP13 (and above), run through the Wizard; confirm, verify & save the configuration. Refer to: Event Analytics Configuration
1. It is a known issue that custom roll-up changes to properties and params files are overwritten. Running through the wizard will repair these.
2. Also for seasonality View, it is advisable to run through the Wizard to make sure the right columns are displayed. 
Refer to the following to the link, for appropriate actions related to "Migration of rollups in Netcool/Impact":
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSTPTP_1.4.1/com.ibm.netcool_ops.doc/soc/event_analytics/concept/soc_ea_rollup_migrate.html

- The EventReader service for Seasonality Events is called "ProcessSeasonalityEvents" and it does not (by default) read updated or
de-duplicated events. "Get updated events" is not selected (by default) in the UI for the "ProcessSeasonalityEvents" Service, on the Event Mapping tab.
The reason for this is due to the wide Filter for the "ProcessSeasonityEvents" Event Reader service. By default, the filter is set to "1=1".
With this wide filter, if "Get updated events" was enabled,
and Seasonality rules fired, this could lead to an infinite loop. i.e.
Seasonality Rules updating events which in turn get read by the reader and fire the Seasonality Rules again.
The solution is for the Event Mapping Filter to be set, in such a way, as to avoid already processed events. i.e. if the Seasonality rules are setting the
Service field to "something" then the Event Mapping Filter could be set to restrict these.

- NOI: Impact Event Isolation and Correlation page do not load if non-default cluster name is used (such as NCICLUSTER_Z)
To resolve this issue, perform the following actions:
- stop the Impact GUI server $IMPACT_HOME/bin/stopGUIServer.sh
- copy or rename the file with the correct cluster name. For example:
cp $IMPACT_HOME/opview/displays/NCICLUSTER-EIC_configure.html
$IMPACT_HOME/opview/displays/NCICLUSTER_Z-EIC_configure.html
-restart the Impact GUI server $IMPACT_HOME/bin/startGUIServer.sh
-go to the Event Isolation and Correlation page and confirm the page is displayed without the errors.


- NOI 1.5: The Event Analytics Configuration wizard reports an Unexpected Token error when the Impact GUI server under the Turkish locale
Symptom: When loading the Event Analytics configuration page, an "Unexpected token: E" error is reported. Configuration cannot continue.
Root Cause: When the Impact GUI server is running under the Turkish locale, the GUI server is unable to find the contents of the uiproviderconfig directory.
Resolution: Switch to a different locale and restart the Impact GUI server
- Customization made to web.xml is overwritten
Symptom: Any customization made to the web.xml file of a .war file (such as opview.war and netcool.war) may be overwritten during the upgrade process.
Resolution: Please check the web.xml file after completing the upgrade and reapply the customization. You can find the old customization in the following directory.
Merge the customization, as
appropriate:
<backup>/install/gui_backup/<prior-fp name>/wlp/usr/servers/ImpactUI/apps/ImpactUI.ear

- On Test environments, where more than on instance of Impact is installed (under the same user ID), Installation Manager may suppress the pop-up
message "insufficient space for back up directory" when performing the preliminary system checks (at Fix Pack update).
Resolution: A minimum of 900MB of space is required for updates. If it is really to have more than one instance of Impact on the
environment, each instance should be installed under different user IDs and under under different directories.

- The Prerequisite Scanner will report a failure when it checks the OS Version for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 or later. This failure can be ignored as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 is supported by Netcool/Impact.

Prerequisites

This fix pack includes all maintenance since GA of Impact V7.1.0. This fix pack can be applied directly to the base V7.1.0 product release or any previous
fix pack or interim fix level.
NOTE:
For new Impact 7.1.0 installations, it is recommended that the Impact 7.1.0.20 "Full Install" refresh package be used, instead of the maintenance
update packages. The IBM Tivoli Netcool/Impact 7.1.0.20 "Full Install" packages can be obtained by ordering through Passport Advantage.
