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.

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.

Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on VMware ESXi 6.7 support
The purpose of this RFE is to request support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on VMware ESXi 6.7. One of the IBM project teams at large customer needs an official support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on VMware ESXi 6.7 to implement DB2 high availability with DB2 HADR on RHEL 7.6 on ESXi 6.7. According to the Software Product Compatibility Reports, the latest version of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms, 22.214.171.124, only supports VMware ESXi version up to 5.5. Since the software procurement policy of this customer requires to select the latest version, we can not expect that customer adopts ESXi 5.5 released almost 6 years ago. In addition, ESXi servers are managed by customer and built by infrastructure vendor (not IBM), so we can not specify ESXi version. In order to make this project success, we need ESXi 6.7 support by the end of Mar 2020, which is just before we start build phase.
