Working with HP VM

root's picture

Recently I had to connect to some virtual HP and since I did not know nothing about this environment, I had to dig a little in order to get some results. Well, I have learn nothing significant but I am sharing it with you anyway :)

How to list your virtual machines:

gzhvm01:/#hpvmstatus
[Virtual Machines]

==================== ===== ======= ========= ====== ===== ===== ======= ========
gzhpvm1                  1 HPUX    On (OS)        1     2     4    2 GB        -

How to connect to the console of a virtual machine:

suphvm01:/#hpvmconsole -P protoa1


   vMP MAIN MENU

         CO: Console
         CM: Command Menu
         CL: Console Log
         SL: Show Event Logs
         VM: Virtual Machine Menu
         HE: Main Help Menu
          X: Exit Connection

[protoa1] vMP> CO



        (Use Ctrl-B to return to vMP main menu.)
                GZHPVM1 - Test Machine
Console Login:

Note the commands displayed on the Main Menu, they are very useful and pretty understandable.
Enjoy :)

Have at least the decency to create your own text and comments and run the commands on your own servers and provide your output, not what I did!
