Pinned topic Multiple AppMan connecting to the same zHMC

‏2012-06-20T13:44:55Z |
Hi,
I have a question regarding the new zBx Virtual Server Support Feature in 3.2.2. We have 2 separate AppMan installations which both should control (different) zBx Virtual Servers. All these zBx Servers are running in the same Ensemble, so the zHMC connection is the same for both AppMan.

Is it possible to connect 2 AppMan to the same zHMC?

Can I use the same HMC-user for this connection?

Thanks,
Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    two SA AppMan installations accessing the same HMC would not be supported.
    I will drive an internal discussion what the implications are - but my godfather feeling is that this is not something that can be supported "easily".

    Thanks
    Thomas

      Hi Thomas,

      thanks. That limits our possibilities. We have 2 separate AppMan installations for production and test/development/pre-production, but there is only 1 Ensemble which hosts all environments (production, test, ...).

      Cheers,
      Thomas

        Hi,

        today, I connected 2 different AppMans to 1 zHMC. I could not see any problems. Where is the limitation?

        Thanks,
        Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    we had an internal discussion and we agreed that we support your requirement. Important is that the different SA AppMan installations do not operate on the same virtual servers. We will also provide an update in our docs.
