IBM Cloud - Structured 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

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and vote them if they matter to you.

  1. To post a new idea - select "Add a new idea" and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

  2. Vote 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Details behind error condition with LPARs in PowerVS

Example:

Attempted to deploy 2 LPARs in PowerVS, one would consistently fail - going into error state, with no other details. Tried a number of times to redeploy the one LPAR with the same result. Atempted the next day and it worked.

.

I checked with support and was told:

. One frame was reporting NovaLink errors and the build request failed. Rebooting NovaLink resolved the issue

. One instance failed with an error that it was unable to allocate the network.

.

All useful information that should be available to the end user, without having to hassle support.

    Error state indicates an underlying infrastructure issue. As a user there's nothing you can do to resolve it except open a case.
