Overview

Top rule

The Power Systems HMC delivers an appliance based on POWER8 technology for increased deployment flexibility when managing Power Systems servers.

The HMC connects to one or more managed systems to perform the following primary functions:

  • Provides a console for system administrators and service providers to manage server hardware
  • Creates and maintains a multiple partitioned environment on a managed system
  • Detects, reports, and stores changes in hardware conditions
  • Acts as a service focal point for service providers to determine an appropriate service strategy
  • Displays operating system session terminals for each partition
  • Provides the call home focal point for managed servers
  • Displays ASMI menus for managed servers

The HMC is delivered with its machine code preinstalled on the hard disk drive. After the system is installed and connected to a managed system, you can perform system management tasks.

The HMC machine code does not have provisions for loading or running additional applications that are not related to hardware management or service. All of the tasks needed to maintain the managed system, the underlying operating system, and the HMC machine code are available by using the HMC management interface.

Technical information

Top rule

Specified operating environment

Physical specifications
  • Width: 429 mm (16.9 in.)
  • Depth: 734 mm (28.9 in.)
  • Height: 43 mm (1.7 in.)
  • Weight: 15.9 kg (35 lb)

To assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM industry-standard racks, review the installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment

For some standards and guidelines about the operating environment, see the ASHRAE-A2 website.

Hardware requirements

The IBM Hardware Management Console requires a minimum HMC code level 8.7.0. This code level restricts the CR1 model to management of POWER6, or later, servers. If you need redundant HMC function, the servers can be attached to two separate HMCs to address availability requirements. All HMCs must have the same level of HMC Licensed Machine Code installed.

Management of multiple servers from an HMC might require the use of an Ethernet hub, which provides a physical connection from the HMC to each server rather than a logical Ethernet connection over a LAN.

IBM Knowledge Center provides information about classic and enhanced GUIs for configuring and operating single or multiple managed systems.

Software requirements

The following web browsers are supported for connection with the HMC Licensed Machine Code 8.7.0:

  • Microsoft™ Internet Explorer 11.0.
  • Firefox (versions 45 ESR and 52 ESR are supported).
  • Chrome 57 and Java™ 8 Runtime Environment are supported.

Limitations
  • The HMC is a dedicated-function device used only for the control and service functions of the Power® servers. It is not available for use as a general purpose computing resource.
  • The HMC requires a minimum HMC code level. This code level restricts the HMC to management of POWER6, or later, servers.

Integrated Repair and Verify for CRUs is available at this time in English only. Clients who want access to the translated services guides will be directed to an external website from their HMC.

If additional assistance is required with interpreting English Repair and Verify:

  • Contact the IBM Hardware Support Center (using the method you would normally use to obtain support for your hardware), and ask for Hardware Support. Be sure to have your HMC machine type and serial number available. Indicate that you have problems with translated Repair and Verify.
  • An IBM Service Support Representative (SSR) may be dispatched to your site to assist with your Repair and Verify activity.
  • The HMC and attached servers may not be accessible to you while the SSR is working.

Planning information

Cable orders

Additional Ethernet cables are required to attach the HMC to the system central electronics complex. These cables are customer supplied.

An additional Ethernet cable is required for remote management. The cable connects to the baseboard management controller (BMC).

Security, auditability, and control

This product uses the security and auditability features of the server operating system.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

IBM Electronic Services

Top rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.

To learn how Electronic Services can work for you, go to the IBM Electronic Support website.

Products - terms and conditions

Warranty period

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM.

One year.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Solid-state disk drives, NVMe, and flash adapters have a maximum number of write cycles. Devices that reach this limit may fail to operate according to specifications and must be replaced at the client's expense. Individual service life may vary and can be monitored using an operating system command.

The following have been designated as consumables or supply items and are, therefore, not covered by this warranty:

  • Time and Date Battery
Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 2 (optional) CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. You may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Rack Round EIA Hole Bracket Kit
  • Fan Asm

Warranty services

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

International Warranty Service

International Warranty Service allows you to relocate any machine that is eligible for International Warranty Service and receive continued warranty service in any country where the IBM machine is serviced. If you move your machine to a different country, you are required to report the machine information to your Business Partner or IBM representative.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased. Warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

The following types of information can be found on the International Warranty Service website

  • Machine warranty entitlement and eligibility
  • Directory of contacts by country with technical support contact information
  • Announcement Letters
Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services section for additional details.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM.

Maintenance services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of maintenance service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service levels are:

  • On-Site Repair, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), 8 AM to 5 PM, next business day.
  • On-Site Repair, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), 8 AM to 5 PM, 4-hour response objective. Response times are objectives and are not guaranteed.
  • On-Site Repair, 7 days a week, 24 hrs/day.
  • On-Site Repair, 7 days a week, 24 hrs/day, 4-hour response objective. Response times are objectives and are not guaranteed.

  • IBM On-Site Repair, Next-Business-Day Response Target, Monday-Friday during core business.

  • IBM On-Site Repair, Same Day On-Site Response Target, Monday-Sunday 00:00-24:00, 365 days a year.
Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), and depending upon the maintenance service offerings in your geography, IBM will ship the replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next business day delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, 1) return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and 2) you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

CRUs may be provided as part of the machine's standard maintenance service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under any of the On-site Service levels specified above.

CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRUs: Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

For machines with On-site Same-day Response Service, IBM will replace a Tier 1 CRU part at your request, at no additional charge.

Tier 2 (optional) CRUs: You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

The following parts and features have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Rack Round EIA Hole Bracket Kit
  • Fan Asm
  • PCIe Riser
  • Air Shrouds
  • Internal Cable Asms
  • 1U UIO NIC with 4 PORTS 10G BaseT with INTEL XL710
  • 2 TB HDD (SATA)
  • 8 GB DIMM
  • Front USB Hub Asm
  • Power cords

Model for which there is a maintenance charge:

7063-CR1


Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.
