In an MSP environment there are multiple customers on one system with multiple VLANs. The VLANs are all behind a NAT firewall. From a management point of view, an LPAR should talk to the HMC over RMC through that NAT firewall.
The issue in that environment is where the RMC send's back the contact IP to the HMC. It sends the real IP address and not the NAT IP address, the HMC and the network it resides in have no knowledge of how to communicate with this IP address.
The solution would be, that it should be possible for RMC on the LPAR to request for the HMC to establish a new connection by the LPAR hostname (short name not the FQDN).
