Thanks for the response!
I think my biggest concern is, when they separate, what’s going to happen?
We will continue to have a requirement for ILMT and that won’t go away unfortunately.
But, when HCL separates BigFix from ILMT, technically how is that going to work with the agent?
Right now it points to the BigFix server, where both of these currently run… but with the need to keep both up and running for virtually all the same clients that I currently manage, how will that work? Right now it uses the ActionSite file to point to BigFix. But when they separate, what happens?
Will HCL release a new version with its own client agent that can co-exist with IBM’s client agent that we are all currently using?
Will I need to set up a new HCL BigFix environment and leave the current IBM BigFix environment in place to manage the ILMT tool? Or maybe IBM releases a new version and new environment for their ILMT tool?
Did that make sense? Basically, I need both tools up and running for the same clients.
I don’t believe BigFix Inventory will satisfy the needs of IBM when it comes to reporting all licenses that we currently have here for everything we use. But I could be wrong.
We currently use BigFix for just “BigFix Patch” and the ILMT. So, Inventory may not be available to me.
