Overview
Bottom rule

The Hardware Management Console (HMC) is updating its underlying appliance hardware to stay current with updates in hardware technology. The 7042-CR6 system is being replaced with the 7042-CR7.

RAID 1:

HMCs now offer a high-availability feature. The new 7042-CR7, by default, includes two hard drives with RAID 1 configured. If you prefer not to have RAID 1 enabled on the HMC, you can override it in the ordering system and remove the additional HDD from the order.

RAID 1 is also offered on both the 7042-CR6 and the 7042-CR7 as an MES upgrade option.

RAID 1 uses data mirroring. Two physical drives are combined into an array, and data is striped across the array. The first half of a stripe is the original data; the second half is a mirror (that is, a copy) of the data, but it is written to the other drive in the RAID 1 array.

RAID 1, which requires two physical drives, enables data redundancy.

Blade management:

The HMC gives systems administrators a tool for planning, virtualizing, deploying, and managing IBM Power System servers.

With the introduction of HMC V7R760, the HMC can now manage IBM BladeCenter Power Blade servers. This includes support for dual VIOS, live partition mobility between blades and rack servers, and management of both blades and rack servers from a single management console.

Removal of internal modem:

Future releases of the HMC hardware will not offer an internal modem option.

New features:

PowerVM management enhancements:

Supported models:

HMC V7R760 is the last release to be supported on models 7310-C04, 7315-CR2, and 7310-CR2. Future HMC releases will not be supported on C04 or CR2.

Description
Bottom rule

Transitioning from SDMC/IVM Management to HMC Management: Transitioning from SDMC management of blades to HMC management of blades simply requires the user to add the blades to the management domain of the new console (HMC). This can be performed without a blade server outage.

The process for converting IVM managed blades to be HMC managed is the same as the process for converting IVM managed rack servers to HMC managed rack servers. When converting from IVM to HMC managed blades, all partitions must be manually reconfigured and a blade server outage is required.

Refer to the Power Systems™ HW Information Center for more information.

Planning information

Cable orders

One Ethernet cable is required to attach the HMC to the system CPC. This cable can be customer-supplied or purchased from IBM .

Security, auditability, and control

This product uses the security and auditability features of the server operating system. Use of these facilities is optional. For servers with the IBM i operating system, the security measures supplied by IBM i are designed to reduce the risk of users changing or destroying data resources, but do not prevent it. The IBM i security features include the use of passwords, a security option to limit a user to only the functions provided by customer-designed menus, and a security option to limit read/write access for files, libraries, and folders during normal operations. To achieve increased security, the IBM i controls should be combined with physical security, division of duties, and other appropriate measures.

This product uses the security and auditability features of the AIX® 5.2, 5.3, or 6.1 operating system on an AIX partition that the HMC controls.

The HMC network connection to the partitions is based on a component of IBM's Reliable, Scalable Cluster Technology (RSCT) called Resource Monitoring and Control (RMC). The only operations permitted through this connection are hardware error event collection and hardware inventory data collection, dynamic LPAR resource movement coordination for AIX and Linux partitions, and partition shutdown and reboot for AIX and Linux partitions.

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
Bottom 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.

Warranty period

One year

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. 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 effective on its date of installation. 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.

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 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:

CRU and on-site service

At IBM's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation.
