In this IBM® Redpaper™ publication we describe how to migrate from the Systems Director Management Console (SDMC), model 7042-CR6 hardware appliance, to the Hardware Management Console (HMC). During the migration of SDMC to HMC, you will perform a standard, from-scratch HMC installation.

The procedures in this paper are supported only on SDMC machines (model 7042-CR6) that are migrated to HMC or that will be migrated to HMC.

This paper is intended for IT professionals, such as IBM clients, IBM Business Partners, information architects, business intelligence administrators, and database administrators.
