Systems management for the IBM Flex System is built on several components. IBM X-Architecture compute nodes come with an Integrated Management Module (IMM). IBM Power Systems architecture compute nodes come with a Flexible Service Processor (FSP). Both architectures are connected to the Chassis Management Module (CMM) to provide the integrated systems management functions for the node. IBM Flex System Manager (FSM) management node provides the key focal point for systems management in the IBM Flex System chassis environment.
IBM Flex System Manager management software is the software stack for managing multiple chassis that comes preinstalled on the IBM Flex System Manager management node. It provides a consistent interface that can be used to efficiently manage more than one chassis. The IBM Flex System Manager management node is supported in the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis only and is required for Power Systems compute nodes installed in a IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis.
This course offers a full day on lab exercises to explore basic tasks of IBM Flex System Manager in the Flex System environment. Labs included offer exercises related to navigation, chassis management domain, compute node management, firmware update, and status management.
Enrollment in this course is not restricted. However, typical students taking this course include technical IBM personnel from the FTSS, ATS, and Techline organizations as well as IBM Business Partner technical personnel involved with planning, installation, configuration, and upgrading of IBM PureFlex systems and use of IBM Flex System Manager management software.
