IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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

Post 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 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.

backup resolv.conf prior to upgrade

We have a search path listed in the resolv.conf file. It is helpful to locate any server without using fully qualified domain name. The current upgrade is rewriting the /etc/resolv.conf file and user's home directories every time. Due to which all the saved content is being replaced.

Please create an enhancement to preserve them.

    If we mention blue shield of CA search path in the /etc/resolv.conf then we will be able to reach BSC servers using the short name. But they are being overwritten after every upgrade. If you can't consider this request which benefits client, then please let us know an alternative solution.
