What is The Underlying OS of the ISPIM Virtual Appliance?
The ISPIM VA OS uses an IBM propriety version of Linux.
It is hardened for use with Appliances and Virtual Appliances. The OS is not accessible from outside the VA and there are no facilities provided for customer or IBM to access the OS command shell or the underlying file system.
The PIM VA does offer a custom restricted shell, accessible via SSH, which offers facilities related to maintenance of the VA, for example, to restart the VA, to apply a fixpack, to upgrade firmware, to retrieve a troubleshooting logs and to configure debug settings.
There are no means to execute typical OS commands on this shell.
