IBM Sterling Ideas

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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

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 add another tool/command to UNIX Connect:Direct : NDMPING which exists on TANDEM Connect:Direct, however not on UNIX Connect:Direct

Please add another tool/command to UNIX Connect:Direct : NDMPING which exists on TANDEM Connect:Direct, however not on UNIX Connect:Direct. It is useful to have NDMPING on UNIX Connect:Direct to help CD Administrators to complete a validation test to remote nodes

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team, but unfortunately we will not be able to accept this. We've determined that we don't have an NDMPING command that ships with C:D for HP NonStop. We suspect that someone within your organization likely created that previously using a null process. Since this isn't something that ships on other platforms we would suggest taking similar actions with a null or blank process to perform the validation tests on your remote nodes for your UNIX systems. Assuming no copy steps or other actions are coded in the process it should simply establish a connection and then disconnect providing the information that you're looking for. Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us and please don't hesitate to use the tool in the future if you have other ideas we should consider.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
