PowerHA SystemMirror updates now in Fix Central

The PowerHA SystemMirror 6.1 and 7.1 updates have been moved into Fix Central.
Previously, the updates were available for download from the PowerHA 'special awareness site' – http
Fix Central now lists both a 'PowerHA SystemMirror' product and a 'PowerHA V5 legacy releases' product for selection under 'Cluster software'.
At some point in the future, these two 'products' will be placed under PowerHA SystemMirror and the release selection will take you to the appropriate place to find the updates.
PowerHA SystemMirror 6.1 and 7.1 updates now entitled and your IBM Web ID will need to be mapped/registered to the IBM Customer Number (ICN) with the PowerHA entitlement.
One advantage of having the fixes in Fix Central is they are no longer associated with AIX releases. The previous site listed the updates by AIX release rather than by PowerHA release and this caused confusion.
Another advantage is the updates are listed by release and support PowerHA's new service strategy of release updates on multiple levels. The updates are also listed in order by release date.
One problem that currently exists is there is no 'bulk ftp' capability for the 6.1 and 7.1 updates. We apologize for this issue and I hope that it will be fixed very soon.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this move.
