Issue/Introduction

There is a difference between the V1 and V2 Topology requests

The HWILIST was never detecting Image Group Records correctly, where V2 HWIREST sees them correctly:

Resolution

IBM's response:

There are differences between BCPII V1 (SNMP) and V2 (Web API).

It depends where the image groups are defined.
Are they in the Support Element (SE) or in the HMC?
BCPII V1 only pulls data from the SE and does not see groups defined in the HMC.
Likewise BCPII V2 is pulling data from the zManager which could be HMC or SE under the covers.

Broadcom info:

As far as above sample, the image groups are only defined on the HMC, not in the SE.
