IBM Licensing Newsletter June 2022

IBM Licensing Newsletter for June 2022

👨 💻What I’ve been doing

Among the projects this month was a new client establish their IBM license baseline. Although it’s a well defined process there’s frequently something that will make it challenging. In this case the “something” was upgrading ILMT after a troubled initial install.

If you ever have problems with your install or upgrade of BigFix / ILMT be sure to open a PMR with IBM and keep a note of it in your own service desk tool. It may explain a compliance gap in the future but without the PMR it will be more difficult to explain to an auditor

🌐 What I’ve been reading or listening too

📝 Writing

I have been revamping the website and blog. Getting my subscriber list s/w working proved more challenging that expected. The “starter” package turned out to be too limited so I have to upgrade to “professional”, that’s SaaS for you. There may still be some kinks but I’m going live this month no matter what 😨.
