Custom PVU Count for DR Purpose

ILMT cannot custom the report based on the software policy for DR. Several software IBM, ie InfoSphere Warehouse Enterprise have the policy for DR is 100 PVU license per server. But the ILMT can only include (the full PVU count for the partition) or exclude the instance (0 PVU). It is not correct if we choose one of that two options. ILMT cannot calculate automatically 100PVU for DR. We are expecting that ILMT could calculate this instance correctly in the audit report and match with the IBM software license policies.
