Re: minimum firmware for aix 6.1 tl7 on 8204-e8a2013-02-16T16:57:48Z in response to SystemAdminCurrent firmware is EL340_039. You do realize this came out in Nov 2008...... and is long out of support.
Here's the FUD you no doubt expected when you first posted your question -> It may very well run AIX 6.1 TL7 ok, but I don't like to rediscover known problems if I can help it. I'd suggest you plan to upgrade to the latest EL350 firmware as soon as practical.
You can read thru the pages of History Changes here -> http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/software/server/firmware/EL-Firmware-Hist.html <- and make your own decsion.
Bottom line.... do whatever works for you.

you can go ahead with aix 6.1 TL7 .. I dont think that IBM include or exclude the support for aix version with firmware release.
Here is the link for your reference.
Firmware upgrade normally fixes are for new hardware support/new features.
Go ahead with your upgrade :)
