Add the shared processor pool that partitions are in as a column option on the partition list table view. This would make it much easier to manage multiple shared processor pools. The information appears in HMC scanner, but that's a lot of effort ...
Modify USB Media Formatting to allow objects larger than 4GB
Many HMC fixes are now greater than 4GB and so can not be installed on a Physical HMC via USB removal media. This is because the HMC format removal media command uses the FAT32 format which is limited at the 4GB file size.
Please modify the USB M...
I would like a way to use a command line command from the HMC to get into the ASMI and get the last Current Operating State for all managed systems we own. This will be used to know when all of our managed systems have been last rebooted, thus upg...

Add command for displaying the hardware where a defined VM runs.
Ease of management, example when deleting a VM cli-wise it removes several steps (or the need for additional scripting to check all hw and find the lpar).
Here also would be beneficial to present all VMs with the same name, to secure removal but a...
