12.4. Using the HMC vterm
The HMC vterm is the console for any partitioned IBM System p or IBM System i system. 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 12.3, “A Note about Linux Virtual Consoles” .
