Virtual Machines (Integrity VM)
Integrity VM is a soft partitioning
and virtualization technology that provides operating system isolation,
with sub-CPU allocation granularity and shared I/O. Integrity VM can
be installed on an Integrity server or a hardware partition (nPartition)
running HP-UX. OpenVMS can be one of the guest operating systems supported.
A self-contained, intelligent, mass storage subsystem that
lets computers in an OpenVMS Cluster system environment share disks. The disk on which you install or upgrade
the operating system can be connected to one of these systems (for
example, an HSV or HSG).
disk storage server. For OpenVMS Alpha systems, the InfoServer may
be an independent hardware device or, beginning with OpenVMS Version
8.3, it may be a utility (software application) on an OpenVMS system.
On OpenVMS Integrity server systems, the InfoServer is only available
as a software application on an OpenVMS system.
hardware can serve CDs only (it does not support DVDs); thus, this
hardware device cannot serve the OpenVMS Integrity servers operating
environment (OE) DVD. The InfoServer utility
can serve both DVDs and CDs (for OpenVMS Integrity servers and OpenVMS
Alpha systems, respectively). The systems connected to the same LAN
can use the InfoServer utility to boot the
OpenVMS operating system from a virtual drive (instead of the local
drive). For more information about the InfoServer utility, see the HP OpenVMS Version 8.4 New Features and Documentation Overview.
on your computer system, such as a CD, DVD, or disk drive (hard drive),
that is connected directly to the computer. If you have a standalone
computer, it is likely that all drives connected to the computer system
are local drives.
operating system media
OpenVMS Alpha operating system CD or the OpenVMS
for Integrity servers Operating Environment DVD (OE DVD) included with an OpenVMS distribution kit, which contains the
OpenVMS operating system and the installation and other procedures
described in this manual.|
HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM), the process
of installing or upgrading OpenVMS on one or more Integrity servers
automatically. HP SIM initiates the process and the installation or
upgrade automatically continues in the background.
The drive that
holds the operating system media during an upgrade or installation.
This can be a local drive or an InfoServer virtual drive. The drive
contains the OpenVMS Alpha operating system CD or the OpenVMS for
Integrity servers Operating Environment DVD, or a copy of it.
The disk from
which OpenVMS is typically booted. During an installation or upgrade,
this is the target disk because it receives files from the source
drive. After installation or upgrade, the target drive is booted
and becomes the system disk.
drive that holds the target system disk during the upgrade or installation.
Note: the target drive must be a hard drive, not a CD or DVD.
Virtual KVM (vKVM)
Virtual keyboard, video, and mouse feature included with Integrated Lights Out (iLO) 2 Management Processor (MP) on Integrity servers (rx2660, rx3600, and rx6600
Integrity servers and the BL860c and BL870c Server Blade products).
The feature allows you to connect a virtual serial line from your
PC to Integrity servers, enabling your PC, keyboard, and mouse to
function as if directly connected to the server. Your window displays
the contents of the Integrity server's VGA.
virtual media (vMedia)
capability included with Integrated Lights Out (iLO) 2 Management
Processor (MP) on Integrity servers. vMedia provides virtual devices
that mimic physical hardware devices. For example, it can provide
a virtual CD/DVD drive that emulates the DVD drive on a PC and connects
over the network to your Integrity servers as if it were physically
connected. You can use vMedia to install OpenVMS on Integrity servers
that do not include a built-in DVD drive or that are physically located
elsewhere. vMedia can provide the network service for HP SIM provisioning,
or it can be used independently of HP SIM.
