16.4. Using the HMC vterm

The HMC vterm is the console for any partitioned IBM System p. This is opened by right clicking on the partition on the HMC, and then selecting Open Terminal Window. Only a single vterm can be connected to the console at one time and there is no console access for partitioned system besides the vterm. This often is referred to as a 'virtual console', but is different from the virtual consoles in Section 16.3, “A Note About Linux Virtual Consoles” .
