What are the docs needed to troubleshoot the TLCM issues


Collecting troubleshooting data early, even before opening the PMR, helps IBM® Support quickly determine if:

Symptoms match known problems (rediscovery).
There is a non-defect problem that can be identified and resolved.
There is a defect that identifies a workaround to reduce severity.
Locating root cause can speed development of a code fix.

For IBM Tivoli License Compliance Manager v2.2/v2.3 or earlier, you can not use IBM Support Assistant (ISA) to capture general information. Alternatively, you must manually collect the general information.

Entering general information into an electronically-opened PMR (ESR) eliminates waiting on the phone to provide general information to Level 1 support.
