For guidance on how to correct this, contact HMC support. DEFERRED On model 590 and 595 systems, fixed a problem that was causing DDR II memory cards in slots C10 and C12 to fail the memory test during a slow-mode boot. C1802000
In a system with redundant service processors, a problem was fixed that caused platform dumps to be corrupted. Model 590 and 595 Recommendations 59x Upgrade Path Reference Table 59x Upgrade Path Reference Table From Level To Level Mechanism SF230_xxx SF235_xxx Not supported SF230_xxx SF240_xxx Order ECA815 and an A problem was fixed that caused the "ping" command in the system management services (SMS) to fail during a NIM installation. his comment is here A problem was fixed that might prevent the system from booting to runtime with power SRCs 11008456 and 110015x4, even though the power subsystem was functioning within specifications.
Powering a MCU from a battery without a regulator Who lost to Glass Joe? SF240_284_201 11/30/06 Impact: Availability Severity: Special Attention System firmware changes that affect systems using HSL Opticonnect: A problem was fixed that caused a system in an Opticonnect cluster to crash This applies to model 561 systems with processor features code 7295 or 7781 installed, and model 570 systems with processor feature code 7782 installed.
A problem was fixed that would have caused the memory DIMMs to be replaced prematurely if correctable errors start to occur. A problem was fixed that caused SRC B157F22A to be posted and the IPL to be halted after a platform dump. On systems with a redundant service processor, a problem was fixed that added approximately 10 minutes to the time it took the system to reboot. On model 575, 590, and 595 systems, a problem was fixed that caused the IPL time to possibly be longer than normal.

Adds support for concurrent firmware maintenance on systems managed by an HMC. Instructions for installing firmware updates and upgrades can be found at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/eserver/v1r3s/index.jsp?topic=/ipha5/fix_serv_firm_kick.htm Choose the options that match your server setup, and follow the instructions provided. A problem was fixed that might have caused partitions that were sharing processors to hang. If this error condition is already present on the system, the power supply will have to be reseated to clear the error.

In a large cluster of systems, a problem was fixed that caused the clustered system manager to receive the same IP address for multiple managed systems - causing no connect or A problem was fixed that prevented enhanced error handling (EEH) from working on systems and partitions running Linux.
Installing System Firmware using a CD Note: When attempting to install system firmware from CD media you may receive an HMC error approximately 10 seconds after starting the installation. If the above three conditions do not exist on the server, AIX 5.3 TL05 does not need to be installed prior to upgrading to the SF240 firmware. A problem was fixed that prevented the "identify" LEDs from being toggled correctly on some enclosures. Project Euler Problem 35: counting circular primes below 1 million Wind mills in empty fields.
A problem was fixed that caused the operating system to crash after a processor host bus (PHB) was added by a DLPAR operation, followed by a concurrent firmware update. If the firmware is to be installed on a Power5+ server with one of the Feature Code/CCIN's defined in the table, it is possible that AIX 5.3 TL05 may need to These deferred fixes can be installed concurrently, but will not be activated until the next IPL.
