Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 product management 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 notification 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.
HAA$UREO - Max Tape Vols/DASD Units should be created on HAA$DSD as separate fields
Seems having Max Tape Vols/DASD Units is dangerous. These should be separated into two different entry fields. VOLCNT is tape volumes, UNCNT is units. Also these should not be on a general panel, HAA$UREO. This should be on HAA$DSD.
The fields really have two distinct meaning and need to be on distinct fields.
Specifies the maximum number of volumes that an output data set might require. The specified value must be between 0 and 255. The default value for tape templates is 95. For disk templates, the utility does not set a default value. Operating system defaults apply.
Specifies the number of devices that are to be allocated. The specified value must in the range 0 - 59.
If UNIT specifies a specific device number, the value of UNCNT must either be 1 or be omitted.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
