Linux on IBM Power Hardware: Power8 and Power9

Question asked by Sunny.Singh on Feb 14, 2018

We have been advised that the Snow Inventory client version 5.x does not yet support Linux on IBM Power architecture. Does anyone have any recommendations on how we can manage these systems in an automated way through Snow?


The only workaround we have at the moment is to create manual inventory files for these systems for a one time snapshot import into the snow system for reporting purposes. This doesn't allow us to leverage the software recognition capabilities or to manage these systems on an ongoing basis. The accuracy of the data imported is also an issue. 


Thank you in advance.
