Cloud Management and AIOps

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 enhance a 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 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 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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on-premises, containers, cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management

  • Cloud Pak for Network Automation - incl Orchestration and Performance Management

  • Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps - incl Netcool Operations Management portfolio

Qualify TSAMP 4.1.04 on Centos 7.4 and Later

Referencing Salesforce Case - TS001479603

We would like to have TSAMP qualified for Centos 7.4 and later.

Based on DB2 AESE Compatibility Report - https://www.ibm.com/software/reports/compatibility/clarity-reports/report/html/softwareReqsForProduct?deliverableId=3AF321105FF411E6865BC3F213DB63F7&osPlatforms=Linux&duComponentIds=S010|S004|S015|S008|S009|S011|S005|S013|S003|A001|A006|A014|A007|A002|A016|A012&mandatoryCapIds=183|25&optionalCapIds=30|341|47|17|1|131|20|28 - it appears DB2 supports Centos 7.4 however TSAMP does not. This does bring about an interesting point that TSAMP and DB2 support are not in sync, perhaps that's a point for the future as well.

Idea Priority High
Use Case
Our group is standardizing our hosts to all use Centos, however we cannot deploy DB2 without TSAMP. Could you please qualify TSAMP on Centos 7.4 and later so that we can begin this migration to Centos hosts? Moreover, I'd imagine this is an issue for other DB2 customers who use Centos. The base product support DB2 but the add-on product TSAMP does not support.

    Based on the above statement, I am closing this RFE as we will not apply this capability to the 4.1.0.4 fix pack. If CentOS support is delivered it will be for the current CentOS version in a subsequent release and will not be back ported.

    TSA-MP support for CentOS is under consideration; however, this support will not be back ported to 4.1.0.4
