Extend WRKJOB (or new SQL service) to show open descriptors of a job
When analyzing issues some times I must also check how many descriptors a job has in use. In case of f_type VNODE I will also check the IFS path. To get these information I must execute the following statement: CALL PGM(QP0FPTOS) PARM('*DUMPLFS' &...
When sending email updates on support cases, can you include the current case status (maybe former too)? I ask because, often I create cases and your team will update it in the portal to say they are researching or something similar. I then get an...
In PowerVC 2.0.3 when you deploy a VM from the UI, when you have more than 500 networks in the list, the page is totally unusable correctly.
Instead of having the list of ALL the networks already populated, it would probably be better to be able ...
Make VM search field search within ALL the VMs and not just the displayed ones (PowerVC 2.0.3)
In PowerVC 1.4.4, when using the search field in the VM List page, the search was done through the list of ALL VMs and not just the ones currently displayed.

Use of a PowerVC reporting would offer a chargeback possibility, combining VM name, core- and memory-minutes (and possibly other parts).
This report would also be good to generate from ansible and use for service follupup.

We often get support calls and HMC events stating PSU / power supply issues has been detected. When the power is back we dont get that event / info which then needs more work for admins to check and close event.
In addition to adopting authority to access data BRMS should swap user profiles too.
IBM i 7.5 killed some BRMS functions we were using by changing the *PUBLIC authority to data from *USE to *EXCLUDE. You may think this is a security enhancement but it isn't. Now instead of users only being able to see data we have to add QBRMS as...
directly enter SQL-Arrays as Input Arguments for Stored Procedures
Our reporting systems calls Stored Procedues on a DB2/400 system via ODBC/JDBC. The SP receives for example one productID and then it collects the desired informations from our DB2400-tables and return it to the reporting system via a result set. ...
