Opening a local 5250 console session from an HMC

You can open a 5250 console locally from an active logical partition or while activating an IBM i logical
partition from a Hardware Management Console (HMC).

Opening a session from an active IBM i logical partition

If your IBM i logical partition is active, you can open a 5250 console from it.
To connect to a 5250 console locally from an active logical partition, complete the following steps:
1. In the navigation area, expand Systems Management.
2. Select Servers, and select the server with the IBM i logical partition that you want to work with.
3. In the contents area, right-click on the logical partition and choose from the following options:
v Open dedicated 5250 console: If you select this option, other users are not able to share the session
with you.
v Open shared 5250 console: If you select this option, others can share this session with you. For
example, you could start a backup that might take several hours, and then either you or someone
else can manage it from another workstation in your office or from home.
4. If you selected Open shared 5250 console, you must enter a session key that can be used by another
user with another 5250 emulator. If you are the first user, the session key is entered twice to verify
accuracy. You must include a numeric digit in the key. You might want to describe the task that you
are performing, for example, backup1key. With this option, you can do the following operations:
v Share a console session
v See the same logical partition console windows
v Navigate each of the logical partition console windows

Opening a session while activating an IBM i logical partition

If your IBM i logical partition is not active, you can activate it and open a 5250 console at the same time.
To open a 5250 console, perform the following steps:
1. In the navigation area, expand Systems Management.
2. Select Servers, and select the server with the IBM i logical partition that you want to work with.
3. In the contents area, select the logical partition that you want to activate and for which you want to
open a 5250 console session.
4. Select Operations → tasks → Activate.
5. Select Open a terminal window or console session.
6. Click OK. The logical partition is activated and the 5250 session opens. If requested, enter a session
key.

Opening a remote 5250 console session from an HMC

Learn how to connect to a 5250 console remotely, in addition to configuring remote security and the
Hardware Management Console (HMC) firewall.
The remote support for HMC 5250 uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. With SSL encryption
required for all remote access to the HMC, a certificate is required to provide the keys for this encryption.
The HMC provides a self-signed certificate that allows this encryption to occur.
To connect to a 5250 console remotely, you must use one of the following emulators:
®
v IBM iSeries
Access PC5250 emulator, Version 5, Release 3 with PTF SI13587 or later
Note: To view your service pack level, select Start → Programs → IBM System i
Service → Check Service Level.
v IBM Personal Communications 5250 emulator, Version 5.7 or later
