Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Systems Director Management Console (SDMC) V6.7.3 is the next-generation Hardware Management Console (HMC). The SDMC incorporates the IBM Systems Director software to provide consistency with IBM Systems Director on other platforms.

The SDMC is available on physical hardware that is identical to that of the current HMC with additional memory and disk resources. SDMC is also available in a virtual appliance format for managing small-tier servers. The SDMC offers several advantages over the HMC, including the ability to manage both Power Systems servers and Power Systems blades based on Power Architecture®.

Description
Bottom rule

The SDMC is intended to be used in the same manner as the HMC. It provides the same functionality, including hardware, service, and virtualization management, for your Power Systems server and Power Systems blades. Because SDMC uses IBM Systems Director Express® Edition, it also provides all Systems Director Express capabilities, such as monitoring of operating systems and creating event action plans.

The SDMC can be obtained as a hardware appliance -- in the same manner as an HMC. Hardware appliances support managing Power Systems servers. The SDMC can optionally be obtained in a virtual appliance format, capable of running on VMware (ESX/i 4, or later), and KVM (Red Hat Enterprise Linux® (RHEL) 5.5). The virtual appliance is only supported for managing small-tier Power® servers and Power Systems blades. For the software appliance, you are responsible for providing the hardware (IBM System x® system only) and virtualization environment.

In most cases, the scalability and performance of SDMC matches that of a current HMC. This includes both the number of systems (hosts) and the number of partitions (virtual servers) that can be managed. Currently, 48 small-tier entry servers or 32 large-tier servers can be managed by the SDMC with up to 1,024 partitions (virtual servers) configured across those managed systems (hosts).

Much of the SDMC function is equivalent to the HMC. This includes:

  • Server (host) management: Like HMC, the SDMC server (host) management functions include power control, inventory collection, firmware management including concurrent updates, error reporting, dump retrieval and transmission, error reporting via Call Home, and component repair and verify.
  • Virtualization management: Like HMC, the SDMC virtualization management function includes management of logical partitions (virtual servers) and virtual I/O, Micro-Partitioning™, Partition (Virtual Server) Mobility, Partition (virtual server) Suspend and Resume, Active Memory™ Sharing, N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), HCA (IB) configuration, and other PowerVM™ capabilities.
  • Transition of configuration data: All partition (virtual server) related information is stored on the managed system itself and will be maintained as is. No configuration changes are required when a client moves from HMC management to SDMC management.
  • Redundancy and high availability: The SDMC offers console redundancy similar to the HMC. The SDMC may be used in either an SDMC-SDMC pair or an SDMC-HMC pair. Alternatively, the SDMC may be configured as an Active-Passive High Availability pair. The Active-Passive HA function provides high availability for Systems Director operating system management functions.

While most functions that SDMC provides are very similar to that of the HMC, the SDMC has made significant strides in simplifying virtualization management. Specifically, managing virtual I/O has become much simpler as SDMC can automatically create virtual I/O adapters, and allow the user to assign virtual storage directly to partitions (virtual servers). SDMC provides a more intuitive interface for dynamically managing the resources currently assigned to a partition (virtual server), by combining the HMC DLPAR functions with partition (virtual server) properties. SDMC also allows partition (virtual server) modifications independent of the partition (virtual server) state.

Another significant enhancement is the ability of the SDMC to manage Power Systems blades. While IVM is still a choice for Power Systems blade management, clients choosing SDMC management of blades can take advantage of multiple Virtual I/O Servers, multiple shared processor pools, Active Memory Expansion, Partition (virtual server) Suspend and Resume, and many other PowerVM capabilities.

Because SDMC uses Systems Director, you can take advantage of all that Systems Director Express Edition has to offer with respect to managing Power Systems servers and blades. Highlights include:

  • Operating system management: Use SDMC to discover and directly manage your operating systems.
  • Event automation plans: Create automation plans that perform specific functions on a given event. For example, when the CPU utilization exceeds a given threshold, an email notification can be sent to an administrator.
  • Dashboard: The SDMC provides a dashboard with health and status.
  • Monitoring: Systems Director brings a richer set of monitoring functions to the management console.
  • Common look and feel of the IBM Systems Director portfolio family.

The Systems Director Management Console Virtual Appliance (5765-MCV) does not include support for the customer-installed hypervisor. If you use the SDMC Virtual Appliance, you will need to purchase KVM or VMware support separately if you want to have support for your hypervisor.

  • Migration, updates, and compatibility: IBM does not support upgrades or conversions from existing CR5/CR6 hardware-based Hardware Management Consoles to the Systems Director Management Console.

Differences from HMC: The following functions provided by the HMC are not provided by the SDMC: modem support and VPN call home. Also, POWER5™ technology-based servers are not supported by the SDMC.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

The SDMC:

  • Requires an IBM 7042 Rack-mounted Hardware Management Console and IBM SDMC indicator (#0963).
  • Supports all POWER6™ and POWER7™ processor-based systems (including Power Systems blades) with the exception of the 575. Note that POWER5 systems are not supported. This includes POWER5 I/O towers connected to a POWER6 server.

Configuration, service, and management capabilities provided by the HMC today will be supported natively in SDMC (with some minor exceptions). The SDMC is part of the Systems Director product family with a focus on managing Power Systems hardware. SDMC will support POWER6 and POWER7 processor-based hardware families. Also, a new capability for support of the Power Systems blades is now available.

The software appliance must run on virtualized System x hardware with sufficient available resources. The available resources required for the virtual machine are: 4 VCPUs (Nahelem class or better), 6 GB RAM, 500 GB disk drives, and one to four separate networks.

Software requirements
  • SDMC requires the IBM Systems Director Management Console Hardware Appliance (5765-MCH).
  • The hypervisors supported are:
    • VMware (ESX/i 4.0, or later)
    • KVM (RHEL 5.5)
  • SDMC on Power Systems POWER6 processor-based servers and blades requires eFirmware level 3.5.7.
  • SDMC on Power Systems POWER7 processor-based servers and blades requires eFirmware level 7.3.0.

Only the following SDMC virtual appliances are prerequisites and supported:

  • VMware VSphere V4
  • VMware ESX/i V4
  • RHEL 5.5 with KVM
  • IBM System x x86-based server

At a minimum, the following resources should be available to the virtual machine:

  • 2.53 GHz Intel® Xeon® E5630, Quad Core processor
  • 500 MB storage
  • 6 GB memory

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a readme file, or other information published by IBM, such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language.

Limitations

The SDMC physical appliance is limited to IBM 7042-CR6 Rack-mounted Hardware Management Console and the IBM SDMC indicator (#0963).

The SDMC virtual appliance is supported on IBM System x servers. The SDMC virtual appliance may only manage the entry small-tier Power Systems servers and blades. SDMC is currently available only in the English language.

The first release of SDMC does not include support for Systems Director Advanced Managers, such as VMControl and Active Energy Manager.

SDMC is only intended to manage Power Systems servers and blades with POWER6 processors or newer. Using it to manage non Power Systems environments is not supported.

POWER6 Enterprise (mid and high-end) servers require an HMC for CEC Concurrent Maintenance (CCM). There is no such restriction for POWER7 systems - both HMC and SDMC can perform CEC Hot Add and Repair Maintenance (CHARM) procedures on POWER7 systems.

Planning information

Packaging

The IBM Systems Director Management Console Hardware Appliance package contains three DVDs that include product installation documentation and files.

Your Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for this program is a copy of a paid sales receipt, purchase order, invoice, or other sales record from IBM or its authorized reseller from whom you acquired the program, provided that it states the license charge unit (the characteristics of intended use of the program, number of processors, number of users) and quantity acquired.

Information about how you may obtain program services will be provided by the party (either IBM or its authorized reseller) from whom you acquired the program.

Security, auditability, and control

Security and auditability features of the SDMC are like the HMC. SDMC relies on the security of the Linux-based appliance, including ssh and a restricted shell. The Systems Director application audits users and tasks, and provides an SSL-based user interface that allows for customer-supplied certificates.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Server

Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. For the purpose of server-based licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements for each server that is made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server or the number of copies of the program on the server.

In addition to the entitlements required for the program, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover the servers managed by the program, as follows: IBM AIX® Enterprise Edition entitlements or IBM Systems Director Editions entitlements are required for the total number of activated processors (including any temporary processors) on each server being managed by the program. IBM Systems Director Editions include IBM Systems Director Express Edition for Power, IBM Systems Director Standard Edition for Power, or IBM Systems Director Enterprise Edition for Power.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
