Each of the following system-management methods can be performed using the HMC interface or the command line.
  • Use the HMC client to remotely manage any AIX® partition or system. All AIX plug-ins on the AIX system can be managed remotely from the HMC client.
  • Use an HMC client remotely manage another HMC client. All HMC plug-ins on the HMC server may be managed remotely from the HMC client. The only plug-in that is an exception is the Service Agent plug-in.
