Obtaining a specific firmware update with an HMC

Find out how to download and install a specific level of server firmware or power subsystem firmware rather than the highest level of firmware.

You can download and install a specific level of firmware rather than the highest (most recent) level.

To get a specific firmware update, follow these steps:

  1. Expand the Licensed Internal Code Maintenance folder.
  2. Click the Licensed Internal Code Updates icon.
  3. In the Contents area, click Change Internal Code.
  4. In the Target Object Selection window, click the target system, and click OK.
  5. In the Change Internal Code window, select Select advanced features, and click OK.
  6. In the Advanced features window, select Install and activate (implied retrieve), and click OK.
  7. In the Specify LIC Repository window, select the repository location from which you want to download and install the specific firmware update, and click OK. For more information about each of the repositories, click Help.
  8. In the Install and Activate (Implied Retrieve) window, choose from the following options:
    • If you want to get the highest level, click OK. Then continue with step 12.
    • If you want a specific level, select Specific levels for LIC level type, and click OK. Then continue with the next step.
  9. In the Specify LIC Levels window, select the LIC type for which you want to choose a specific level, and click Change Level. For example, you might select Managed system.
  10. In the Select LIC Level window, select the LIC level you want to install, and click OK. Select None if you do not want to update the selected LIC type. The Specify LIC Levels window is displayed again, showing the LIC type and LIC level that you selected.
  11. Verify that the LIC type and LIC level displayed are correct, and click OK.
  12. This step applies only if the process is disruptive. In the Select Installation Type window, select Concurrent install only, with deferred disruptive activate if you want to install the firmware update now and activate the firmware update later, or select Disruptive install and activate if you want to install and activate the firmware level immediately, and click OK.
  13. In the Hardware Management Console License Agreement window, read the agreement and click Accept.
  14. In the Confirm the Action window, perform the required actions, and click Finish.

    If the following message is displayed on the HMC interface, you will need to manually shut down all of the applications and logical partitions to prevent the system from shutting them down abnormally during the process. Quiesce any applications currently running on your operating systems for the systems listed below.

    Perform the following steps:
    1. Use the usual procedures to shut down the logical partitions:
      • To shut down AIX? logical partitions, see Shutting down AIX logical partitions.
      • To shut down i5/OS? logical partitions, use the Power Down System (PWRDWNSYS RESTART *NO) command from an i5/OS command line (either in a 5250 emulator session on your HMC, or on the Operations Console). For further details, see Shutting down i5/OS logical partitions.
      • To shut down Linux? logical partitions, see Shutting down Linux logical partitions.
    2. Power off the managed system.
    3. Restart the HMC after the server is off.
    4. Use the Change Licensed Internal Code Wizard to apply the firmware. Do not interrupt this process.
    5. Restart the managed system.
    6. Activate the Logical Partitions.

    At the end of a disruptive process, the managed system automatically returns to its original state.
