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.

PASE - Allow to run while on restricted state

This RFE is connected with #154063

For a better integration with Open Source tools it would be great to allow commands in PASE while system is in restricted stated.
Even without TCP services will be useful.

I can think of two scenarios:
* PASE can run on QCTL
* PASE runs on a exclusive subsystem, and is not taken in account when declaring restricted state

Use Case:

* We could save using PASE tools
* When combined with RFE #154063 we could monitor IBM i during night shift process, like backup or maintenance windows

    Thank you for the request. IBM does not plan to provide a solution for this request in the near future. Due to the constraints of system state, the utility of PASE commands would be significantly reduced.
