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

  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.

TSA MP supported for AWS

The purpose of this RFE is to request support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on AWS.

One of the IBM project teams at large customer needs an official support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on AWS multi AZ environment to implement DB2 high availability with DB2 HADR on RHEL 7 on AWS. Since this customer only allow the platform AWS, and we have no choice but AWS, and the delivery project has already started.

We would like to take one of following 4 options.
Any of the following options are fine, but if at all possible, I would like to know which ones might support on AWS.
1. Cloud tiebreaker (S3)
2. Network tiebreaker
3. SCSIPR tiebreaker
4. No tirbreaker, but three-node cluster

In order to make this project success, we need AWS support by the end of Mar 2020, which is just before system cutover.

    I think TSA support is absolutely necessary to build a db2 HA system on Clund env.
