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.

EGO_MASTER_LIST supports DNS alias

The client would like to be able to specify alias DNS name instead of official hostname for EGO_MASTER_LIST in ego.conf.

For example, there are below master, master candidate, management hosts in the cluster. The left side is their official host name. The right side is their alias name.

dpdevom01 master
idpdevom02 mastercandidate
idptstom01 ssm1
idptstom02 ssm2

The client would like all the cluster hosts (including all compute, client, and management hosts) to use

EGO_MASTER_LIST="master mastercandidate"

in ego.conf.

instead of "dpdevom01 idpdevom02"

For Alias DNS definition please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNAME_record

    Just a quick question
    If IP address changed later, it seems that this configuration host file needs to be modified again to support alias?
