Issue/Introduction

There may be a requirement to install an Automic agent on IBM HMC appliances. 

Automic provides installation setups for AIX servers and Linux servers including installation steps. 

As HMC manages both Linux and AIX servers resources such as CPU, Memory, is there a separate Automic setup for installing Automic on HMC including different installation steps?

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

There is no agent for the actual console for HMC and no special setup. 

An agent would need to be installed as usual on each AIX or Linux system that the HMC manages. 

For reference, please see the installation documentation here: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AA/12.3/DOCU/12.3/Automic%20Automation%20Guides/help.htm#Installation_Manual/InstallAgents/InstallAgentUNIX.htm?TocPath=Installing%257CManual%2520Installation%257CInstalling%2520the%2520Agents%257CInstalling%2520the%2520Agent%2520for%2520UNIX%257C_____0
