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.

Dynamically editable min/max fields when LPAR gets shut down

When you are on a partitions memory configuration section and the partition is running you can only change the allocated value and the min/max values are greyed out.

When the partition is then shut down the min/max values should be editable but this is only possible when you reload the page or navigate back and forth.

Please make the HMC GUI dynamically reflect the LPAR state and make the min/max values editable without additional interaction.

Same for CPU settings.

    Hi Karsten,

    We are considering this as an enhancement for long term roadmap.

    Maybe it'd be even more helpful to have some kind of next run configuration.

    IMHO more a bug report than a feature request.
