In Advanced Technology Support (ATS), we like to think we know what we are doing. Then something catches us out and we think that we had better let every other Power Systems administrators know about this or there are going to be many horrified users out there and many complaints. Note this problem hit our combination of HMC, VIOS and machines - you might get lucky but don't risk it!
Gareth Coates (my ATS partner) volunteered to perform the regular 6 month update of our systems but hit a BIG problem. He writes:
This caught me (Gareth) out and could easily upset a lot of users:
The answer is PTF MH01354 HMC V7 R7.7.0 Service Pack 2
The HMC Service Pack is downloadable from the IBM Supports website FixCentral
Thanks Gareth for the "heads up" - hopefully we can save some others from this "bear trap".
