RE: From HMC to No-HMC?



fixed

Can it connect to a system from the public port, or is it always from private?

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.

dedicated lan that no one else can get to. Makes remote control a tad bit tricky.
