Issue/Introduction



I am tracking products on an LPAR.
What is the suggested way to track products that are at the LPAR Level? Does the LPAR need to be the Device?

Environment

Release:
Component: CASAM

Resolution

The recommendation regarding LPARs is to make each LPAR its own device. They should have the Fully Qualified Domain Name in most cases. The serial number can be used as an identifier for the physical host.
