Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Better troubleshooting when HMC doesn't display devices like disks when it should.
When the CMDB on the VIOS server is wrong, then the HMC simply does not display what you should see, and you have zero insight into why. We had issues with disks, missing UUIDs, or other errors. There should be a command, maybe a little more refin...
Currently, firmware updates rely on an RMC connection between the HMC and the individual AIX/Linux partitions. Also, Cloud Management Console relies on an RMC connection to the individual partitions to obtain some of its data. We would like Novali...
Security enhancement: log the source IP for success and failed login
We are sending hmc syslog to our log management server, and here is what we noticed:
