Abstract

Members of the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) Support team shared information on relevance conditions in fixlets in ILMT and IBM BigFix Inventory (BFI). Attendees asked questions of the presenter and panelists.

Content

For this third ILMT-BFI Open Mic session of 2017, Michal Zalas told how to interpret why a particular ILMTor BFI related fixlet is not relevant for actioning in the BigFix console. He also elaborated on the most common fixlets used in ILMT and explained their relevance points. We then opened the call to take questions from the audience. Throughout the event, attendees asked questions in the Q and A panel of the online meeting.
