Better protect your critical business applications from failures with the world-spanning capabilities of IBM High Availability Cluster Multi-Processing for AIX® 5L, V5.1.0 (HACMP V5.1).
For over 10 years, IBM HACMP has provided reliable high availability services, monitoring customers' IBM pSeries servers and dependably performing application fallover to backup servers. When used with IBM Enterprise Storage Subsystem (ESS) Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy (PPRC) hardware, HACMP has recently provided new real-time data mirroring for critical business needs. Additionally, IBM HAGEO software has provided unlimited distance IP-based data mirroring that offers both automatic fallover and resynchronization of valuable data to and from a distant backup site. IBM HAGEO has been the D.H. Brown "Number One Rated" Disaster Recovery Solution for UNIX®-based Mission-Critical Applications.
Now HACMP 5.1.0 offers not only improved usability, functionality, and performance, but also a new optional package, HACMP/XD (Extended Distance), that will offer multiple data backup and disaster recovery technologies. HACMP/XD will provide extended distance for ESS/PPRC peers and unlimited distance for IP-connected peers using proven IBM HAGEO technology.
Now you have a single, world-class source of protection for your mission-critical applications.
New V5 features include:
Planned Availability Dates
HACMP V5 is IBM's industry-leading high availability cluster technology offering for customers in the business-on-demand world, providing significant improvement in usability, faster performance, and new data backup and disaster recovery capabilities. HACMP 5.1.0 supports clusters of up to 32 servers with extensive capabilities: cluster management, status monitoring, concurrent shared-access management, and automated data backup and disaster recovery.
HACMP V5 includes all of the functions previously included in HACMP V4: HAS, ES, CRM, and ESCRM. This simplification enables you to easily take advantage of, and achieve all of the benefits of, all of the traditional functions and powers of HACMP.
HACMP V5 provides base services for cluster membership, system management, configuration integrity and control, fallover, and recovery for up to 32 servers or nodes. Easy-to-use status and monitoring facilities are included. Scalability functionality provides these capabilities across entire clusters and allows customers to define their own HACMP events and monitor their applications. HACMP V5 fully supports administration of AIX 5L Enhanced Concurrent Mode, thus providing concurrent shared-access management for all supported disk subsystems.
HACMP V5's new XD option provides automated data backup and disaster recovery across geographically dispersed geographies, enabling you to protect business-critical applications and provide 24 x 7 service to your customers and staff.
HACMP V5 takes advantage of Reliable Scalable Cluster Technology (RSCT) features of AIX 5L to bring
greater scalability. HACMP clusters with both nonconcurrent and concurrent access can have up to 32
nodes. A node is an AIX 5L operating system image, and it may be a pSeries or RS/6000® server, an
RS/6000 SP node, or an LPAR of an applicable pSeries system.
Highlights of Release 5.1
HACMP V5.1 includes the following new or enhanced features:

Description and Key Features
Accessibility by People with Disabilities
The following features support use by people with disabilities:
Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation ActHACMP V5.1, is capable as of July 11, 2003, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.
The prospective customer for HACMP solutions is any enterprise with requirements to keep business-critical applications and systems operational 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. An HACMP solution provides the means to recover from any unplanned server hardware and application failures , and also gives you the means to take down an individual server (node) for planned maintenance and upgrades without having to take down the entire cluster.
High availability is a growing business need across all industries. The following industries are prime opportunities for HACMP solutions:
HACMP opportunities exist in these industries for the following applications:
The HACMP/XD (Extended Distance) feature is a must for customers with business-critical data who want to mirror data between separate sites to aid in disaster recovery. This applies to businesses of any size, with multiple sites or regional operations, or wherever decentralization of data is desired.
HACMP is an attractive and affordable high availability solution for small- and medium-sized enterprises, and for small- and medium-sized business units of large enterprises. "High availability" should be a fundamental buying criterion for business-critical and e-business applications.
In addition to providing high availability, HACMP 5.1 can also be configured to provide loosely coupled multiprocessing services. These configurations allow workload to be spread across multiple pSeries systems, sharing the disk and processor resources of the clustered nodes. This clustered approach, along with the capability of application fallover and recovery/restart of the HACMP 5.1 configured machine, offers additional levels of high availability processing for customer-critical environments. The concurrent resource manager function of HACMP 5.1.0 provides an open API that applications can utilize to get concurrent access to a shared disk.
Customers who want to use HACMP 4.5 with ESS PPRC hardware may want to purchase PRPQ 5799-GQB for that purpose.
Position of HACMP Relative to Other Cluster Servers: HACMP is a robust offering for mission-critical availability for up to 32 nodes. It is IBM's strategic high availability offering designed and tuned for pSeries servers running AIX 5L.

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) are implemented on all enterprise-class pSeries, Cluster 1600, and RS/6000 servers:
High Availability Control Workstation (HACWS)
For cluster customers using PSSP, there is an existing feature called HACWS. HACWS is a two-node
HACMP application. This application improves the reliability, availability, and serviceability of
an SP system by providing for a backup control workstation. Automatic fallover and reintegration to
the backup control workstation are provided should the primary control workstation fail or if there
is a need to take the primary control workstation down to perform hardware and software maintenance.
HACWS fully supports pSeries servers that are HMC-controlled in a PSSP-managed cluster.
Existing customers of HACMP V4.4 or V4.5 (5765-E54) can obtain HACMP V5 via the 5771-HMP or 5773-HMP Software Maintenance product offerings.
Existing customers of HACMP V4.4 or V4.5 (5765-E54) can obtain additional copies of HACMP V4.5.0 via the AIX SPO 5692-A5L feature numbers 0953 through 0956 until withdrawn.

HACMP V5.1.0 works with pSeries servers in a "no-single-point-of-failure" server configuration.
HACMP V5.1.0 supports the pSeries, Cluster 1600, and RS/6000 models designed for server applications and that meet the minimum requirements for internal memory, internal disk, and I/O slots. The following pSeries and RS/6000 models and their corresponding upgrades are or will be supported in HACMP V5.1.0:
Any supported pSeries or RS/6000 server can be joined with any other supported pSeries or RS/6000 server in an HACMP V5.1 configuration. Models with less than three slots can be used in the HACMP V5.1 server configuration, but due to slot limitations, a single-point-of-failure is unavoidable in shared-disk or shared-network resources.
HACMP 5.1.0 supports concurrent access configuration with all supported external storage systems.
Certain non-IBM RAID systems can operate in concurrent I/O access environments. IBM will not accept Authorized Program Analysis Reports (APARs) if the non-IBM RAID offerings do not work properly with HACMP 5.1.0.
The minimum configuration of each machine is highly dependent on the user's database package and other applications.
Actual configuration requirements are highly localized according to the required function and performance needs of individual sites. In configuring a cluster, particular attention must be paid to:
Whenever a process takes over resources after a failure, consideration must be given to work partitioning. For example, if node A is expected to take over for failed node B and continue to perform its original duties, A must be configured with enough resources to perform the work of both.
HACMP 5.1.0 Device Support
HACMP supports client users on a LAN using TCP/IP. HACMP monitors and performs IP address switching for the following TCP/IP-based communications adapters on cluster nodes:
At this time, the following adapters are supported in the HACMP 5.1.0 environment. Refer to individual hardware announcements for the levels of AIX supported.

SSA Disk Cabling for HACMP 5.1.0:
HACMP 5.1.0 requires AIX 5L on pSeries, Cluster 1600, or RS/6000 servers with at least four slots.
The specific requirements for AIX 5.1 or AIX 5.2 are:
The RSCT file sets delivered with AIX 5L must be installed. They are:
PSSP V3.5 is also required on RS/6000 SP (9076) systems.
In order to use disk heartbeating for HACMP 5.1, customers will need these RSCT APARs:
Each node within a high availability server complex requires the licensed program HACMP 5.1.0 to be installed. Except during the upgrade process from earlier releases of HACMP V4, it is recommended that all nodes in the HACMP server complex be at the same AIX 5L operating system level, including PTFs and maintenance upgrades.
Some of the devices supported in HACMP 5.1.0 may require a later release level of the AIX 5L operating system; refer to the specific hardware announcement for the AIX 5L release levels required by the hardware.
The HAView facility requires the installation of Tivoli NetView for AIX (5697-NVW).
To use C-SPOC with VPATH disks, SDD 126.96.36.199, or later, is required.
To use HACMP Online Planning Worksheets, AIX 5L Java Runtime Environment is required.
HACMP/XD requires HACMP V5.1.0 (cluster.es.server.rte 188.8.131.52).
For ESS/PPRC mirroring:
Note: Although HACMP V4 and V5 can coexist in a cluster temporarily, the Version Compatibility function is intended to ease migration from prior releases of HACMP V4 and is not intended to provide long-term compatibility between versions of the product in a cluster.
HACMP clusters containing multiple LPAR partitions within a single pSeries server frame may contain only a single power frame, which would represent a potential single-point-of-failure.
For additional information regarding IP-based mirroring, refer to Software Announcement 202-266 , dated October 8, 2002.
Performance Considerations: HACMP 5.1.0 cluster performance can be measured and reported in many ways. In a mutual takeover/partitioned workload cluster environment, the user's applications and data are spread across 2 to 32 machines in a cluster. Data management and application management can be placed under the control of a single node for efficiency or on each node for performance. In this partitioned environment, minimal interaction between nodes in a cluster derives high efficiency in each node. When a fallover occurs and the backup machine takes over for a failed node, performance is degraded for that period of time when the node is down.
In data sharing, LAN and file system overhead and data contention can reduce processor efficiency.
Where data must be shared, the concurrent access configuration can be utilized, but less efficiently
than a single system because distributed locks must be maintained between cluster nodes and
All of these conversions can be done while your cluster is not operational; for information regarding node conversion while maintaining cluster operation, refer to the Compatibility section.
The following conversions are provided for converting existing configurations of HACMP V4 (HAS, ES, CRM, or ESCRM) to HACMP V5.1:
HACMP 5.1.0 includes conversion utilities to help you migrate your configuration between products in the HACMP family.
You can convert from the High Availability Network File System (HANFS) feature of older versions of HACMP to HACMP V5.1; however, this conversion requires an intermediate step up converting to HAS V4.5, then converting to HACMP V5.1: HACMP for NFS (HANFS), V4.3.1.
Security, Auditability, and Control
The announced program uses the security and auditability features of AIX 5L V5.1 and V5.2 for servers.
The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
