The IBM Z® HMC collection, also represented as ibm_zhmc in this document, is part of the broader initiative to bring Ansible® Automation to IBM Z through the offering Red Hat® Ansible Certified Content for IBM Z.

The IBM Z HMC collection provides Ansible modules that can manage platform resources on IBM Z and LinuxONE machines. The IBM Z platform resources that can be managed include Partitions, CPU, memory, virtual switches, I/O adapters and various platform resources, and covers lifecycle and configuration operations.

The Ansible modules in this collection are written in Python and interact with the Web Services API of the Hardware Management Console (HMC) of the Z machines to be managed.
