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.
When performing an automated silent install/upgrade from the Windows command prompt, instead of the command dropping straight back to the command prompt, certain messages would be returned and at the end of the install/upgrade a return code/status would be displayed before the command ends.
This would benefit the administrators who are tasked to install/upgrade CD. Currently they have to wait and check the CD install log, when I tested this install it took approx 5 minutes to install/uninstall. I had to keep on opening the log manually and checking, when messages could be displayed and a return code/status at the end.

How will this idea be used?
We need to upgrade all our Windows estate this year and any of them run CD. We are looking to automate the installation and if the status should be returned to the command prompt it would save time and effort in manually having to the check each CD install log. When you multiple this by 100 odd installs it adds up to a lot of extra time
