HAFM 8.x is supported only on the 1unit-high (1 U-high) rack-mount HAFM appliance. Due to
memory and other limitations of previous notebook server platforms, you cannot install HAFM 8.x
on a notebook sever. The HAFM appliance is required for release 8.x and all future HAFM releases.
The HAFM appliance and related applications provide a GUI to monitor and manage HP products.
The HAFM appliance is a dedicated hardware and software solution that should not be used for
other tasks. HP tests the HAFM application installed on the HAFM appliance, but HP does not test
for compatibility with third-party software.
Modifications to the HAFM appliance hardware or installation of additional software
(including patches or service packs) may interfere with normal operation.
