Open Source Packeges - installed packages alignment between cluster partitions

Hello all,

we'd like to have a procedure or a product (including it in PowerHA should be perfect) to have the installed open source packages aligned between two or more partitions.

In our case we have a powerHA cluster of 3 nodes, and other 3 satellite partitions, every time we install a new package (or update existing one) we've to remember to do the same action on all partitions, and this is so frustrating and error-addicted.

It'd be great to have a system, a procedure or a product program that can manage this alignment automatically.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    IBM agrees on the value of this and plan to look at potential approaches, while no commitment can be made at this time.
