    This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes how to set up RAID1 on your hardware management console (HMC), model 7042-CR6 or 7042-CR7 hardware appliance. During the migration, you perform a standard, from the beginning, HMC installation and restoration of your data.

    The procedures in this paper are supported only on HMC machines, models 7042-CR6 and 7042-CR7. When the procedure differs between models, this paper indicates to which model the instructions apply.
