Getting firmware fixes

Learn how to obtain and apply firmware fixes.

Server firmware is the licensed machine code that resides in system flash memory. Server firmware includes a number of subcomponents, including POWER Hypervisor™ power control, service processor, and logical partition firmware that is loaded into either AIX®, IBM® i, or Linux logical partitions. When you install a server firmware fix, it is installed on the temporary side of the service processor.
Note: For information on getting fixes when your system is managed by a management console, see Managed system updates in Updates.
