(UCMDB SUPPORT TIP) - dmidecode -t system not running on power linux OS

Through the discovery process realized that the command 'dmidecode -t system' is not able/configured to run on power linux OS, althought in the system requirements provided for the product regarding the Linux OS (in general) this specific command is described as to be able to run and provide the following results :

- Discover Node Model- Discover Host Serial Number - Discover Manufacture info- Discover Node Bios UUID For the moment have successful discovery only for x86 Linux OS. Want to check/analyze whether the above discovery requirements meet one discovery needs and if not how one will be able to retrieve this kind of information from the servers, which have linux OS running on Power Architecture technology.

Currently Microfocus only supports AIX on the IBM POWER platform, not Linux.

There are some ER and QCCR are asking ucmdb to support Linux on IBM POWER platform, please refer to the below links, the feature is deliverred in CMS 2018-11.
