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.

Document permissions to update Deployment Manager client install when fixpacks or packages are applied to the C&DS server.

User has a existing installation of Deployment Manager client. Either a new package (ex: Modeler Adapters) or a Fixpack is applied to the Collaboration and Deployment Services Server. When the users deployment manager client first connects to the C&DS server, the client checks to see if there are any updates to apply to the client installation directory. If the user is signed in with an Administrator profile that has access to the deployment manager client installation directory, then the updates are applied and all is well. However if the user is not a member of the Administrators group on that system, the client will then look to the Users directory and update the deployment manager cache directory. That update is only good for that session, once the users signs out and back in, they will then get prompted again that there are updates to apply, this will continue to happen until an Administrator is able to log in with that users client and update the Deployement Manger install directory.

The customer would like something put in the Adapter installation instructions (Modeler/Statistics/ADM) and the C&DS fixpack instructions that after updates are applied to the C&DS server, the clients must sign on to their machine and launch the deployment manager client with a Administrator profile so the client installation directory will get updated.
