Support discovery of Linux OS on the ppc64le platform

Idea ID 1650027

Support discovery of Linux OS on the ppc64le platform

Currently Microfocus only supports AIX on the IBM POWER platform, not Linux.  We require support for the discovery of the  ppc64le platform as that is the direction we're moving to for SAP, one of the largest environement$ in our corporation.

ppc64 is an identifier commonly used within the Linux, GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) and LLVM open-source software communities to refer to the target architecture for applications optimized for 64-bit big-endian PowerPC and Power Architecture processors.

ppc64le is a pure little-endian mode that has been introduced with POWER8 as the prime target for technologies provided by the OpenPOWER Foundation, aiming at enabling porting of the x86 Linux-based software with minimal effort.

The business impact for us is that we cannot discover the platform that supports one of the most signifiact business application suites in our company.

We've provided a ppc64le version that can be downloaded from the ITOM Marketplace.  From our perspective, we've completed the testing, but still require real users to validate this works as expected.  It supports discovery of Littel Endiam version of ppc64le.  You can grab it at Community Content section for CMS.  The actual download link is https://marketplace.microfocus.com/api/download/174914?returnUrl=/itom/content/community-content-ud-0
