  • 1.  New Navigator - when are the BRMS and AJS plugins arriving?

    Posted Tue May 10, 2022 10:58 AM
    New Navigator is great; we finally are back to being able to administer more than one LPAR again!
    I understand that the Heritage Navigator will be out of support at the end of 2022.
    If this is the case, there are still several plugins/tasks that don't exist on the new Navigator; BRMS and AJS for example.
    Is there a timetable for their inclusion throughout 2022 as we're having to start up Admin2 to get additional tasks completed.
    If there are still outstanding elements at the end of 2022, with the heritage Navigator support be extended?

    Dear Mark

    You can find the answer in this URL :  IBM Navigator for i - Roadmap   No specific time table though.

    Visit the following 2 URLs on whether a PTF is available for the new Navigator's functional area of your interest :

    I was told yesterday by IBM support there is no timetable for when those plug-ins will be delivered.  I was told to use the Command Line or Activate the Heritage version as needed.  They did point me to the other sites just suggested, but there is no useful information on timetable for either of those links.  They also provided me the link below for an idea to add BRMS and AJS to the new Navigator for i.  A new "Idea"?  I have to wonder who is managing the direction for this team.  You get to vote on the new idea at the link below but nothing says it will be delivered.  
    https://ibm-power-systems-cc.ideas.ibm.com/ideas/IBMI-I-2609

    While I always support the directions and technologies delivered for this platform, I can't believe after years of IBM shepherding us to graphical management adoption, shutting down the Windows version and only supporting Java, then release a  gutted version and cut the head off of Graphical Management.  Command line access for those products is very cumbersome and this new interface is a disappointment.  

    I hope they get on the ball and deliver a full product soon, especially since they have a hard cut off of support for the Heritage version at the end of 2022.

    I agree Michael, we need a solution.  I've hit the same problem with replacing a failed disk.  Not in the new Nav & dont see it on the roadmap ...
