Pinned topic Automated bundling in 7.2.2

‏2012-11-19T17:29:22Z |
I have another query.
In our environemt, on some of the LPARs,product IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition PVU Option version 9.7 is installed and on some other LPARs only client version of the product is installed.However, during aggregation and inventory building,ILMT doesn't differentiate between the real install and client install and assign the client install to the same product and we have to manually mark the client to be a client install.Is their a way by which ILMT automatically differentiate between the client and real install?
We are working on ILMT 7.2.2.2

To mention,the component ILMT discovered is IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition - CPU Option,9.7

Regards,
Harish.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately there is no way for 7.2.2 ILMT to automatically differentiate between the client and real install if the detected component is in fact the same component. Simply ILMT calculated that the best potential product matching for such component is 'IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition PVU Option server' product and always when 'IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition - CPU Option,9.7' component will be discovered by any of the agents it will be by default bundle to this server product.
    The automated bundling algorithms were significantly improved in 7.5 tool version, so it is possible that upgrade to ILMT 7.5 version will help you with that, but I can not guarantee that.
    You can learn more about new automated bundling in ILMT 7.5 on the following page:

    Thanks a lot, that was helpful.I will prepare a transition plan to move to ILMT 7.5
    I have another query:
    If on a agent I run a software scan on Nov5,2012 and then after few days later I generate an audit report covering time period Nov6-Nov7,2012.Will this report have the newly discovered products for the agent on which I ran scan on Nov5,2012?

    I am new to ILMT and am trying to clear many of my confusions.

    Hello Harish,

    Aren't you interested in taking complementary free on-line training regarding ILMT functionality? These are self-paced classes so you can take any module you want at a given time. If yes, just follow the instruction related to SPVC paragraph from here:
    https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/wikis/home?lang=en#/wiki/IBM%20License%20Metric%20Tool/page/ILMT%20End-to-End%20Education

    Additionally I strongly recommend you to watch a Startup Kit presentation that can be downloaded from here:
    https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/wikis/home?lang=en#/wiki/IBM%20License%20Metric%20Tool/page/ILMT%20Deep%20Dive

    PS. Please always try to open a new thread for every new question. By doing this we make our lives easier as it's much better to have question-answer thread with adequate title than a thread that looks like questionA-answerA-questionB-answerB-... where starting from questionB the title is not related to the content anymore.
