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.

Start / StopCommand is not issued to the resources with Unknown state, during start / stop of resource group or takeover.
"StartCommand / StopCommand is not issued to the resources with Unknown state, during starting / stopping of resource group or takeover"
This request comes from the PMR - 04264,616,760 The request is for a change to issue StartCommand / StopCommand to Unknown resources during the start / stop of a resource group or takeover.
At high workload on the system, Unknown will likely to occur due to a time-out of the MoniorCommand and also likely to cause a takeover. Especially at the time of takeover, if stop command is not issued to the Unknown resources, the resources will run on both systems, which may cause for example, damage to the file system is mounted. The TSA policy that TSA does not cause any action to the Unknown resources is no problem if system is running normally, care is needed during takeover.
Because there is a risk of damage when critical resource runs at the same time in both systems, we usually include a command to force shutdown of the resource in the StopCommand to avoid the risk. Therefore issuing a StopCommand even for Unknown resources would be able to protect critical resources.
