UDA support for Linux on Power platform (ppc64) for uCMDB 10.33

UDA support for Linux on Power platform (ppc64) for uCMDB 10.33

Currently the Universal Discovery Agent only supports AIX on the IBM POWER platform, not Linux.  We require support for the discovery of the  ppc64 platform as that is a very common platform in our customers infrastructure.

ppc64 is an identifier commonly used within the open-source software communities to refer to the target architecture for applications optimized for 64-bit big-endian PowerPC and Power Architecture processors.

The business impact for us is that we cannot discover the platform of a great number of VMs

We have built support for UD agent and scanner for PPC64le 1.0.  It is available now at the UD Community Content section at https://marketplace.microfocus.com/itom/content/community-content-ud-0.  Can you try this and let us know how it works for you?  If you have problems, contact me directly at bill.dyck@microfocus.com

Thanks Bill but unfortunately I'm getting 404 error when trying to open the marketplace link that you provided.

I found that entry in the idea exchange but thought it only applied to the 2018-11 version. I also found the software in the marketplace.

Thank you very much for the assistance.

Well, according to our Linux admins, we can't use this package because it is for Little Endian (ppc64le) Linux Distribution while we are using Big Endian.

Any plan for Big Endian (ppc64) ?

It's not a duplicate, because the other solution is not running on "Big Endian" plattform.

MF promised to change status next week.

Upon further review, this request is NOT a duplicate.  We have provided (in Community Content) the ability to discover little endian (ppc64le).   This request is to discover big endian, which is similiar but definitely NOT the same.
