Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Strange but True the HMC is an actual real computer and should be treated as one! In this session we'll talk about proper configuration, especially the network and the firewall built into the system. You will learn how to make it report problems to IBM and how IBM contacts the right people when problems exist. We'll discuss user profile and access and proper restrictions that will allow you to let others use the HMC without risk to the servers it manages. We will show you how to apply maintenance and how to upgrade it. We'll explain how to connect to it remotely and how to run commands from it's command line. Of course we'll tour the interface so that you're comfortable with navigation. What we won't do in this session is discuss how to create partitions, this is an HMC session not a virtualization session!

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the components and capabilities of the HMC
2. Configure the HMC and its users and security.
3. Update the HMC software.
4. Connect to the HMC remotely to manage IBM i
