Preparing the IBM i logical partition to connect to a 5250 console
session
Learn how to set up your IBM i logical partition so that it can communicate with the 5250 console on a
Hardware Management Console (HMC).
To connect to a 5250 console using the HMC, you must ensure that the IBM i logical partition profile
properties are set up properly. To set up the properties on an IBM i logical partition so that you can
connect to a 5250 console, do the following:
1. In the navigation area, expand Systems Management.
2. Expand Servers and select the server that contains the IBM i logical partition that you want to work
with.
3. In the contents pane, select the logical partition you want to work with.
4. Select Tasks → Configuration → Manage Profiles.
5. Select the profile you want to work with, and select Actions → Edit.
6. Click Tagged I/O.
7. Verify that Hardware Management Console appears under the Console menu, and click OK.
8. Click Close.
The logical partition is now ready for a 5250 console session through the HMC. Tagging the I/O adapter
(IOA) in the partition profile automatically sets the console type during the next activation after the
partition profile is updated. An initial program load (IPL) does not recognize the changed partition
profile.
