Overview

The new IBM zSeries® Hardware Management Console (HMC) is available as either a dual Ethernet feature or a Token Ring/Ethernet feature. For greater flexibility, you may now order up to 10 HMCs.

Recognizing the potential need for additional Multi-Station Access Units (MAUs) to support additional HMCs, zSeries is also introducing a MAU feature. You may order up to 10 MAUs. MAUs are only needed for Token Ring HMC connections.

And, recognizing the potential need for additional Support Element (SE) Ethernet Switches (former HUB) (#0089) to support additional HMCs, you may now order up to 10 Ethernet Switches (former HUB) (#0089) as needed for Ethernet HMC connections.

The new Trusted Key Entry (TKE) workstation continues to include Ethernet or Token Ring features for those customers requiring higher security for key entry.

The new business black 17-inch flat panel display and 20-inch flat panel display offer the benefits of a flat-panel monitor, such as improved use of space, and can provide reduced energy consumption compared to CRT monitors. For greater flexibility, you may order up to 10 flat panel displays.

Description

New Trusted Key Entry Workstation with Token Ring or Ethernet

With this announcement, IBM introduces two TKE workstations: A TKE workstation with an Ethernet adapter (#0849) and a TKE workstation with a Token Ring adapter (#0846). This workstation provides a basic key management system for working with the Cryptographic Coprocessors on your zSeries and/or 9672 G6 servers. The key management system allows an authorized person a method for key identification, exchange, separation, update, backup, and management. The TKE workstation with the TKE code is a tool for security administrators to use in setting up and establishing the security policy and placing it into production. This workstation is an optionally priced feature.

New Hardware Management Console with dual Ethernet, or Token Ring and Ethernet

The new IBM zSeries HMC contains, a dual Ethernet feature (#0079) in addition to the Token Ring/Ethernet feature (#0080). The HMC is a 4x4 desktop system designed to provide a single point of control and single system image for managing local or remote hardware elements. Required to operate a S/390® or zSeries server, a single HMC may support multiple S/390 and zSeries servers located remotely or locally to the physical server site. You may order up to 10 HMCs as needed.

Multi-Station Access Unit (MAU)

The MAU (#0088) is a Multi-Station Access Unit used for token ring connections. Previously automatically shipped with a Token Ring HMC, it is now an orderable feature. One MAU may support several HMCs; you may order up to 10 MAUs as needed.

SE Ethernet Switch (former HUB)

The SE Ethernet Switch (former HUB) (#0089) is used with Ethernet connections. One SE Ethernet Switch (former HUB) may support several HMCs; you may order up to 10 Ethernet Switches as needed.

Flat panel displays

The new business black 17-inch (#6094) and 20-inch (#6095) flat panel displays offer the benefits of a flat panel monitor such as improved use of space and can provide reduced energy consumption compared to CRT monitors. For greater flexibility, you may order up to 10 flat panel displays.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM zSeries is capable on delivery, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. Section 794d, as implemented by 36 C.F.R. Part 1194, provided that any Assistive Technology used with the Product properly interoperates with it.

Product positioning

The new HMCs (#0079 and #0080) replace the current HMCs (#0077 and #0078). It is not necessary to replace your existing HMC with these new HMCs.

The SE Ethernet Switch (former HUB) (#0089) can now be ordered up to a quantity of 10.

The MAU (#0088) is now orderable with a maximum quantity of 10.

The new TKEs (#0849 and #0846) replace the current TKEs (#0899 and #0896). It is not necessary to replace your existing TKE with this new TKE.

The new flat panel displays (#6094 and #6095) replace the current CRT monitors (#6092 and #6093). It is not necessary to replace your existing monitor with the flat panel displays.

Statement of general direction

Token Ring on HMC, SE, TKE workstation, and the IBM 2074: The z890 and z990 will be the last zSeries servers to offer token ring adapter features on the Hardware Management Consoles, Support Elements, and Trusted Key Entry workstations. The IBM 2074 Model 3 Console Support Controller will be the last controller to offer Token Ring adapter features.

IBM zSeries is making these statements to allow enterprises sufficient opportunity to prepare for a migration to Ethernet environments.

Hardware Management Consoles: Beginning with the next zSeries server, after the zSeries 890 and 990, all new HMCs on all currently marketed zSeries servers are intended to become closed platforms. They will only support the HMC application and not the installation of other applications, such as the IBM ESCON® Director and the IBM Sysplex Timer® console applications.

When available, the next generation HMC is expected to communicate only with G5 Servers and above (Multiprise® 3000, G5/G6, z800, z900, z890, z990).

TCP/IP is intended to be the only communications protocol supported.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system that is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
