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

Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

mvfs startup using systemd instead of /etc/rc.d/init.d

can ClearCase startup will be modified so that it works correctly on newer versions of Red Hat, where they have changed the startup to use systemd instead of /etc/init.d./clearcase
to start up the service at boot time.

With RHEL7, systemd wasintroduced which boots services in a nondeterministic, nonsequential
order. Clearcase sometimes boots faster than NFS, where our vobs are mounted, causing clearcase to start, but no vobs to be mounted.
Please provide SystemD boot file for clearcase that can be more tuned for SystemD wants/requires tunables.

Use Case
need a deterministic way to boot so that MVFS is not started until after the NFS services are available so the mounts will be successful.
