Flex Systems Manager: Hardware Map Configuration Patterns

In our second walkthrough of the IBM Flex Systems Manager, IBM Technical Specialist, Jonathan Tyrell, turns to the Hardware Map, which provides a realistic graphical view of the Flex System rack, allowing you to inspect your setup and pinpoint any issues.

You can choose what to be notified of, and overlay a wide range of information on top of the graphical representation.

The Configuration Patterns make setup a breeze, letting you define the hardware resources to be used for each provision, including disk arrays, I/O adapters, even BIOS revisions, and then the software hypervisors to run on the hardware.
