All of you must be aware of BMC Customer Support's Knowledge Base. If you ever have entered a search on the BMC Support Central's home page, you have used it.


However, when looking for a solution to a product problem, entering an unspecific search term will return a whole lot of results. Most of these results would be referring to products which would not be relevant to you. Unfortunately, it is quite easy to be unspecific which is due to the huge amount of articles we keep in stock for all of the BMC products.


In order to narrow down the search results to the product family you are actually interested in, you would start to selectively add and/or remove Product Name filters until the better part of the search results finally becomes relevant.


In order to avoid this, you can access the BMC Support Search using a special URL that already contains the product filters. For your convenience we have created some pre-filtered URL's for the PATROL-OS Product families.


If you do not find a product in the below list or find very few articles for your product, it would be good to look into the URL for Performance Manager for Servers as quite a few of the old articles have been created with this LP/DR.


The below list consists the URLs followed by the LP/DR covered in each URL.
