    I am new to doing STIGS for vHMC and I need assistance. 
    I am currently doing the Version 1 Release 2 STIG.
    I don't know what I'm doing and what I'm looking at. I really just need help.

    I have been using the Power Systems HMC for decades but have not heard of STIGS.

    Can you elaborate on the virtual HMC you are using, or what you hope to control or let us know where the code came from?
    Cheers, Nigel

    It appears from the text in this STIG that this is HMC for the Z platform (mainframe). Sections like "ESCON Director Application", "Distributed Console Access Facility (DCAF)". Despite the same functionality, I believe there are some differences, but, I also believe that with this vision, it can be implemented the STIG for the HMC's of the Power platform.
