I guess if someone is going to hack into my system they can do just as
much damage getting in 'traditionally'.
I agree, it's nice that the HMC gave you this capability for those shops
that want it. But, hey, if they'd cut $1000 or so off the HMC but had to
sacrifice this capability I wouldn't be shedding any tears.
How do you do redundant HMC's in a shop that uses your connection? When
the second HMC is a primary HMC for a machine in a different city, and
resides in that city?

Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx Rob, There are two ports on the HMC, one can be made private, one can be made public. The only real thing you accomplish by making everything public is putting ASMI and the FSP on the public network, with all the associated security risks of doing that; in exchange for easy access to the ASMI the two times a year you need to get to it. Bad trade in my view.
