Add Kernel Release Version Attribitue For Unix Like Operating system

Hi support,

 

Currently UD does not discover Kernel Release version of Unix Like Operating system.

Can you please add the discovery of this information.

This information is useful to to build different type of report and compatibility matrices.

 

Regards,

 

Apurba

@Bill_Dyck ,

This is another idea pending for long time.

Idea: kernel version for Unix/Linux (RHEL, Solaris and AIX) needs to be populated . 

We've received the hotfix from MF Support team in the past and same was deployed in CP26. 

However, when we applied CP28, hotfix got removed and we could not simply deploy same hotfix again. Discovery scripts (python code) was modified manually to make it work again.  

SD02221939 - Support case raised and hotfix received & applied in CP26

SD02308621 - Support case raised to get hotfix for CP28 but this time Support team didn't share the hotfix. But on the contrary put in the MF community forum. Below is the link for reference.

@Bill_Dyck  & @doron_orbach : I see another similar idea was closed.

Reference link : https://community.microfocus.com/t5/CMS-Idea-Exchange/Kernel-version-is-not-getting-populated/idi-p/1673362

We can not afford to have hotfix for kernel version considering :-

  1. Every CP release would update the discovery script, which removes the code to populate the kernel version
  2. Hotfix is not provided by MF Support team for new CP(Content Pack) release .

When hotfix can be provided for kernel_version population  for older CP release. Why can't it be included as feature in upcoming CP release ?

Thanks & Regards,
