The new version of the operating system for the IBM v7000 no longer supports SSH for connectivity. As a result we have lost the ability to monitor these devices with ibm_svc version 1.4 This idea is to include TLS as an authentication protocol. This would seem to be a critical issue for us and probably other customers using the ibm_svc probe.
The second request is to add the ability for the ibm_svc probe to notify, via an alarm, if a bad drive has been taken off line. This would enable us to request a change window so we can swap out the failed drive. The current version of the probe does not have this functionality.
