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 offering manager team 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 notifications 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.

TNCM - Autodiscovery with multiple commands for VTMOS on devices that need of more that one command to do it

ITNCM - autodiscovery with multiple commands for VTMOS on devices that need of more that one command to do it

System: Tivoli Netcool Configuration Manager

Actor: Customer/User needing new feature

We have on TNCM the autodiscovery function that extract VTMOS information with one command line for devices that provide all VTMOS data in one command line.

When the device needs more than one command line to extract VTMOS information, the autodiscovery show errors and display VTMOS with status unknow.

Our Customer have many devices that needs multiple commands to extract VTMOS information,

but actually we are limited to only import devices that suport VTMOS information with one command line.

This problem is critical for our customer because they have many devices that need multiple commands to extract VTMOs Information

Idea Priority Urgent
Why is it useful?

We need the possibilitie to input multiple commands for extract VTMOS information on file.

We need that autodiscovery works with multiple commands to extract VTMOS information.

For a example, a device as ciena , that needs multiple commands to extract VTMOS data to be discoved and imported with accessible data on TNCM.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All users that have devices that need multiple commands to extract VTMOS
