The z/OS and z/VM Hardware Configuration Manager (HCM) is a PC based client/server interface to HCD that combines the logical and physical aspects of hardware configuration management. In addition to the logical connections, you can also manage the physical aspects of a configuration. For example, you can effectively manage the flexibility offered by the FICON infrastructure (cabinet, cabling).
All updates to your configuration are done via HCM’s intuitive graphical user interface and, most important, due to the client/server relationship with HCD, all changes of the logical I/O configuration are written into the IODF and fully validated and checked for accuracy and completeness by HCD, thus avoiding unplanned system outages due to incorrect definitions.
For z/OS only, HCM also allows you to display operational data such as system status information and operate on the switch via an interface to the I/O Operations function of System Automation on the host.
The HCM software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
