Some Software Forums and Categories will be merging together

Hi all,

Since the migration of the ITRC forums into the community, you should have noticed that in some product areas that are multiple forums for one product. We did this after the migration to make sure that the ITRC members could find their specific forum. 

Now after 7 months, we will be combining a number of forums together so that you only have one forum where you can submit your questions or search for specific information. All bookmarked posts will still work after we merge the forums together.

The following forums will be merged:

  • The Business Availability Support Forum and the Business Availability Information and News will be merging with ITRC Business Availability Support Forum. The forum will be renamed Business Availability Center Support and News Forum.

  • The Network Management Support Forum and the Network Information and News Forum will be merging with the ITRC Network Node Manager Forum. The forum will be renamed to Network Management Support and News Forum.

  • The Operations Management Product Information and Operations Management Support Forum will be merging with the ITRC OV Operations (ITO) Forum. The forum will be renamed Operations Management Support and News forum.

  •  The Data Protector Support Forum and the General Discussion, Information & News will be merging with the ITRC Data Protector Forum. The forum will be renamed to Data Protector Support and News Forum.

  • ·The Project/Portfolio Management Support Forum and the Project and Portfolio Management Information and News forum will be merging  with  the ITRC  Project and Portfolio Management Forum. The forum will be renamed to Project and Portfolio Management Support and News Forum.

  • The IT Asset Manager Information and News and IT Asset Manager Support Forum will be merging with the ITRC OV asset mgmt Connect -IT, Asset Mgmt Forum. The forum will be renamed to IT Asset Manager/ Connect-IT Support  and News Forum.

  • The Service Management Discussion, Information & News and Service Manager Support Forum will be merging with ITRC OV ServiceCenter/Service Manager Forum. The forum will be renamed to HP Service Manager / Service Center Support Forum.

  •  The ITRC OV IT Service Mgmt and Service Desk Forum will be renamed to Service Desk Support and News forum.

  •   The Quality Center Information and News and the Quality Center Support Forum will be merging with the ITRC Quality Center Support forum. The forum will be renamed to Quality Center Support and News Forum.


All your posts bookmarks will still work after the merging of the forums. Each URL (post), if moved will still point to the same place.

 

The merging will start today (February 6th) at 4 pm (PST). As we are merging many forums it can take up to two days before this is finished. Thanks for your patience.

 

If you have any questions please reply to this message.

 

Greetings,

Bill

Could you please add a "Data Protector Express" Part - it's a complete different product and due to the naming several people asking for Data Protector help even if they own Data Protector Express.

 

Thanks,

Re: A number of Software Forums will be merging together

Please read: Changes to our Software Categories!


Similar to what was recently completed for our Printing and Digital Imaging categories, and in an effort to make navigation more streamlined,  we will be making the following changes to the "Software”  categories and forums in the coming weeks:

1) First, we will rename the “Product Families Community” to “Products” and remove the product families sub-categories. All product sub-categories will be directly under the “Products” category.

 

2) We will merge the “IT Trends” and “Solutions” categories into a new sub-category named “IT Trends / Solutions, with all of their forums together.

 

3) We will also merge the “Fun Zone,” “News,” and “Events.” The new category will be called “News, Events and Fun Zone.” All related forums will reside under this category.

 

4) We will rename “Software Services” to “Software Services and HP Education.”

 

We will have further details and information soon.

Thanks,

>Could you please add a "Data Protector Express"

 

But should this be part of the existing Storage > tape or > Archival Products?

 

It would help if the existing board said that "Data Protector Express" goes here.  Or include that name.

And float a topic in Data Protector to say that Data Protector Express is elsewhere.

Re: A number of Software Forums will be merging together

It depends on how you see Data Protector Express. Since it is shipped with standalone tape drives, more related to the tape storage products than HP software this seems to be correct.

I fully agree, that this product deserve a different forum since it has nothing in common with Data Protector. Floating posts could help, but I guess a moderator must have an eye on this separation in any case.

Sebastian

Any reason you don't merge LoadRunner into Performance Center?

And possibly Functional Testing/QTP into Quality Center / ALM?

 

And you can mention the old names under the new boards.

Re: A number of Software Forums will be merging together

We are not planning on doing that. We might consider moving the Performance Center Support and News forum into the LoadRunner category and then calling the category LoadRunner / Performance Center. In this category you will find all information on LoadRunner and Performance Center.

 

What's your opinion? Or should we leave it as it is?

Re: A number of Software Forums will be merging together

Hi Members,

We have completed the consolidation of the categories and forums in the Software portion of the community. As mentioned previously we believe this will help members find forums quicker, with fewer “clicks”.

 

Consolidation summary:

- Combined IT Trends and Solutions Community category into one category called IT Trends and Solutions. All relevant forums/ blogs were copied into this category.

- Combined the Fun Zone, Software News and Events into one category called News, Events & Fun Zone. All relevant forums/ blogs were copied into this category.

- The Products category now contains all product related sub-categories, forums and blogs. We merged a number of forums together. In some cases we merged specific product Information & News forums into the support forums, which we now call the Support and News forums. In some cases there were several support forums for one product, so we merged these in order to minimize any confusion and provide you with just one forum to post questions and comments.

- “ITRC” was removed from the titles of a number of forums.

- The forum ITRC OV Performance Management Forum was moved from the  Performance Center category  to Systems Management (OpenView-OP Mgmt) -> OV Performance Management Forum

-  We modified the name of some product forums, and here is a summary of the changes  made:

Old category / forum name

New name

SOA Center

 HP Systinet ( SOA Governance)

SOA Center Support forum

HP Systinet ( SOA Governance) Support and News Forum

Business Availability 

Application Performance Mgmt ( BAC / BSM)

Business Availability Center Support and News Forum

Application Performance Mgmt (BAC / BSM) Support and News Forum

Network Management

Network  Management (Openview - NNM)

Network Management Support and News Forum

Network Mgmt /  ( OpenView-NNM) Support and News Forum

Operations Management

Systems Management (OpenView-OP Mgmt)

Operations Management Support and News Forum

Systems Management (OpenView-OP Mgmt) Support and News Forum

Quality Center Community

Quality Center / ALM
