System Management on z/VM with HCM and HCD

z/VM HCM and HCD Product Updates

The HCM and HCD components, introduced with z/VM V4.4, are designed to reduce the amount of system administration input required to complete a z/VM installation and provide a comprehensive, easy-to-use I/O-configuration-management environment similar to that available with the z/OS operating system. The HCM and HCD programs work together to help you easily create and manage the hardware and software aspects of your z/VM system I/O configuration.
