We are looking for an opportunity to use FNMS for IBM as well, however we are lacking support from Flexera for 

  1. IBMi
  2. DataPower appliences

Is this something other companies in this forum is also looking for? If so, please respond to this message and let's see how many of us are looking for this. The more we are...

Re: Flexera to support more platforms

Hi @KMaria 

1.  Do you mean IBM iSeries?

2. Appliances are typically black boxes.  Be it Oracle PCA hosts, IBM, Avaya telephony devices - those devices do not allow 3rd party software installation, and hence by there nature do not require software inventory.

Regards,

there is no IBMi agent.  

ILMT v9 does have a way to integrate with FNMS which would allow for the inventory to arrive in FNMS.

 

The appliance question is one that is hard to solve.  Appliances often will not allow for agents to be installed, but the IBM appliances (especially when virtual) will consume PVU and therefore need to be inventoried.

Yes, I mean IBM ISeries, and this is what I am looking for. Are we several customers that are looking for Flexera to support this platform or not

Yes as you say, they consume PVU and therefore need to be inventoried. Is this something that Flexera is looking into? and is there a need from other customers?
