IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Increase the limit of 32 domains in /etc/resolv.conf for AIX_7 and the resolver nslookup.

Hello, Topic: Increase the limit of 32 domains in /etc/resolv.conf for AIX_7 and the resolver nslookup. Environment: AIX 7200-05-02-2114 I am looking to access all other AIX partitions that are in different network domains. I have therefore placed all the DomainName in the search directive of /etc/resolv.conf file. However, it is limited to 32 domain names. Beyond that the DomainName is not resolved. Example of my /etc/resolv.conf file : nameserver 55.xx.xx.x search yyy.ram xxx.zzz.ram There is four potential groups: <*>.ram <*>.<*>.ram <*> test<*> I wish use a wildcard to create one or several groups? THANKS My cust wants use the resolver nslookup with 40 max domains. I am sharing this information: IZ64342: NSLOOKUP DIG NAMED9 VER 9.4.1 LIMITED TO 8 DOMAIN SEARCH LIST Searching has been extended to support 32 domains. Regards, Benoit

    We want to use the nslookup resolver with a maximum of 40 domains.

    Perhaps a limit of 64 domains would be a good choice.
