Improvement in PowerSC reporting for patch management
We are using PowerSC for AIX patch management. We want to have the following features in the PowerSC GUI to have better reporting:
1. The PowerSC GUI should show in a percentage form - how many patches are currently applied and how many are pending. For example if an LPAR requires 10 patches out of which 5 are applied, the PowerSC GUI should show (5/10) and percentage as 50% patches applied. We need this for compliance and reporting perspective.
2. The PowerSC GUI should show which patch requires a reboot and which one does not. This is critical as it is easier to apply patches which do not require a reboot (without a downtime).
3. The PowerSC GUI should provide an option to export the patch status report as PDF and excel format.
