Customers running firmware levels 2.2.0 or 2.2.1 or 2.2.2 are advised to plan to upgrade to the latest supported releases of the PureApplication firmware in order to continue receiving technical support, as well as proactively avoiding problems that are already resolved.

IBM recommends that users consider applying the latest fix pack version (2.2.3 or later) of the firmware. Of course, in the case of upgrading firmware for any critical expert systems, IBM recommends that users test their configuration and surrounding applications before moving into production.
