Re: Configuring Brand New ISeries ASMI / HMC



fixed

Rob, You have and 'E4C'? Are you sure it is not an 'E4B'? The E4Bs have an
HEA. The E4Cs use the FC5767 ( call it a FC9055 ) as the Base Dual Port LAN
Adapter.

I config these on a regular basis and both IBM eConfig and SPT won't do
HEA's in an E4C. I have also talked to IBM support about virtualizing the
9055 and it is not supported.

Kirk,

How do I reconcile what you've said:
No More HEA's on the E4C models.
With what James said:
We have: HMC1, HMC2, S1, S2, T1-T4.
Isn't T1-T4 indicative of HEA? Or is there some sort of other 4 port
ethernet card?

And, as another poster said, I was a little confused also as to whether he
wanted HMC or Lan Console.
- We can access ASMI, but can't seem to run an HMC device.
- ...but still can't seem to get the Operations Console going...
So my first answer leaned towards Lan Console.

But let me duck back to HMC. I wonder what sort of HMC. Our HMC's are
too old for Power 7 equipment.
Let's see, 720

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/download/attachments/53871900/HMC+and+Firmware+AIX+VUG_Feb+2011.pdf?version=1
POWER7 requires HMC firmware level V7.710 or later
and

http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/firmware/readme?fixid=MH01273#enhance7740
If an HMC is used to manage any POWER7 processor based server, the HMC
must be a model CR3 or later model rack-mount HMC or C05 or later deskside
HMC.
We have CR2's.

No More HEA's on the E4C models. They are using a 5767 Dual Port GB NIC
instead. It can NOT be split or Virtualized across partitions. So if you
want real External Ports for each partition, you will need cards for each
partirtionThe Top Port will be where the system looks for the LAN CONSOLE.
The card I believe by default will be in Slot C6.

There are better minds than me on this list when it comes to that. But
I'll give it a shot. HEA is Host Ethernet Adapter. T1-T4 are those.
And
since it's brand new and I suspect cost more than a can of pop out of
the
soda machine I'd call IBM on a whim if you're still stuck. Most
customers
don't belittle you for calling IBM and grabbing that life line. They'd
rather belittle you for taking days to get done the 'simple' stuff.

Hello,

Just got a 720 Power ISeries in yesterday and am having a heck of a time
getting it configured for Operations Console. The box I was using last
couple of weeks is a few years old, so it was a bit different and went
ever
so smoothly.

We can access ASMI, but can't seem to run an HMC device. Have a Neoware
appliance that I've used for my other box, but can seem to get it to see
the new box.
We have the HMC IP's.

I think there is a basic step we are missing. Reading manuals and such,
but
still can't seem to get the Operations Console going.

The manual states to use the 'first port' HEA or C1, but no such label
exists on the box.
We have: HMC1, HMC2, S1, S2, T1-T4.

Not sure I even formulated an intellgent question, but if anyone can
point
me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!!
