HMCs. VioS. HACMP. These are various products that IBM offer on their p-series AIX platform. I think they may be connected with the uncapping of the LPARs but maybe not. HACMP is Aix clustering, VioS is Virtual io Server, and HMC is a management console.
Does anyone know if LPAR probe covers any of these or has anyone else come across this and if so, what they did to answers the capabilty?
As far as I know, an HMC acts much like a VMware VirtualCenter. From our ibmvm probe, you make a connection to the HMC, just like for Vmware to VirtualCenter Server. Ping Brian Scholz from Ft Collins Engineering as he probably has some good info for you.
