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.

Enable fc_mappings feature support in VMRM to be able to manage Migration between physical servers in Hostgroup which have multiple paths to disk

Everybody deploying VMRM can benefit from it. In fact this is a product limitation for VMRM as the LPM SRR feature directly launched from HMC works properly while VMRM fails to manage this case. This prevents VMRM form managing properly the automation of LPAR SRR on secondary server in case of primary server failure, which is the main capability for VMRM. If this automation does not work the product fails to fulfill the functionality for which it was developed.

    In fact, this comes from a support case where the answer was:

    "In LPM, there is an option available with the HMC's migrlpar command to specify vfc mappings. The option is virtual_fc_mappings. Please check the migrlpar command at per VMR development, this option is not yet supported by VMR/KSYS, please ask the customer to open an enhancement request."
