Setting up an IBM PowerVM environment
To set up an IBM PowerVM environment, you must perform the following tasks:
- Reviewing minimum requirements for IBM PowerVM environments
- Adding the AIX server and IBM frame object to BMC Server Automation
The proxy server makes an SSH connection to the Hardware Management Console (HMC) and then executes HMC commands to obtain the specified frame and its child assets (LPAR/VIO) configurations.
The SSH connection to the HMC works only with password-based authentication.
