I am planning to upgrade system firmware upgrade on one my POWER6 server (9117-MMA)
Current version is EM340_XXX & planning to upgrade to EM350_XXX via HMC (V7)
I understand that this'll be a disruptive task - but not sure whether after upgrade the system will be available
in the HMC as before or will loose it's connection, whether do I need to configure FSP IP again etc..
NOTICE: developerWorks Community will be offline May 29-30, 2015 while we upgrade to the latest version of IBM Connections. For more information, read our upgrade FAQ.

not,only the version of the FSP will updated
HMC is modified in any way
Check only before the update version of the HMC is compatible with the new firmware version installed

Re: 9117-MMA POWER6 System Firmware upgrade query2013-02-18T10:06:50Z in response to PrashannaVenkateshI have performed the firmware upgrade during the last week-end.
Release upgrade EM340_XXX to EM350_XXX was Disruptive and it took approx 20 minutes. However the HMC to system Frame connection (FSP IP connection) remain un-disturbed.
Thanks for those who had responded..
