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.

[Security and Access Control] Security - Kerberos - Support Kerberos Library outside of default install location

Kerberos libraries are installed in a non starndard location (outside of /lib and /lib64). Setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH helps except with VEMKD and PEM, which fail to start.

    This RFE's Headline was changed after submission to reflect the headline of an internal request we were already considering, but will now track here.

    Here is a workaround (when Kerberos is installed outside the default installation location. The workaround is only needed if Symphony daemons fail to start up when Kerberos is enabled because the Kerberos libraries were not found):

    Apply the steps below to sec_ego_gsskrb.so file and any subsequent patches to sec_ego_gsskrb.so file :

    1. Run patchelf untilty for RHEL to set RPATH

    % patchelf --set-rpath sec_ego_gsskrb.so

    2. Run the ldd command to locate/verify the correct dependency

    ldd -r sec_ego_gsskrb.so
