|9A77028||New firmware release||New functions added||N/A|
|MB00573||Hmc may not connect to system.||Licensed Internal Code Changed||None.|
|MB00576||System terminating with a A700xxxx error code after a reset/reload of the service processor.||Removed erroneous reject of host intiated reset/reload.||None.|
|MB00575||Increase resources in order to allow the use of more I/O adapters in a large configuration.||Increase partiton resources.||None.|
|MB00579||Dynamic memory remove from a partition fails.||The code was incorrectly
indicating that memory was unavailable for dynamic removal. The code has
been changed to correctly
indicate when memory is available for dynamic removal.
|MB00580||Concurrent replace of an IOP fails.||The code was not properly
deallocating hypervisor resources belonging to the I/O resource being removed
from the system.
The code has been corrected.
|MB00581||A logical partition exhibits time-of-day drift across a system IPL.||Problem fixed in hypervisor code.||None.|
|MB00582||Reserve Processors for Capacity On Demand are supposed to be idle until called upon for partition workloads. In some cases, all the reserved processors were put into use right away when they were not needed.||The algorithm for deciding when the line of usage got far enough into the Reserve Processor capabilities was not accurate enough.||None.|
|MB00583||A Trial CoD activation may
be accepted while there are
unreturned Trial resources.
|Trial activation will not be allowed while there are unreturned Trial resources of the same resource type.||None.|
|MB00584||CoD history log entries
are not being produced when Trial CoD expiration results in unreturned
resources or when unreturned
Trial or On/Off resources have all been reclaimed.
|CoD history log entries
will be produced when Trial CoD
expiration results in unreturned resources or when unreturned
Trial or On/Off resources have all been reclaimed.
|MB00585||Confirmation of a Capacity
on Demand code for Trial
resources may not work correctly depending on the number of available resources for conversion to Trial resources.
|The system hypervisor will
be fixed to correctly
handle CoD Trial resource confirmation requests.
|MB00586||After replacement of card, unreturned CoD resources were reported as unreturned Trial instead of unreturned On/Off.||When CoD resources become
unreturned for reasons other than Trial CoD expiration, they will be treated
as unreturned On/Off
|MB00587||HMC displayed fields for Capacity on Demand memory amounts total to more memory than is installed in the server.||Firmware is updated to correctly pass to the HMC for display the Capacity on Demand memory amounts.||None.|
|MB00588||Entering an On/Off CoD termination code while there were unreturned On/Off CoD resources resulted in an extended error code of 0x'200A', which means that an On/Off request is active, rather than an error code of 0x'2018', which means the key failed because of unreturned resources.||The failure code will be changed to indicate when a code is rejected due to unreturned resources.||None.|
|MB00589||After activation and expiration of On/Off Processor resources, the entitled number of resources that LPAR should allow is not correct.||The calcluations done after expiration of the On/Off Processor requests, as this testcase represented, were inaccurate. This inaccuracy was corrected and now the reported useable resource numbers are correctly being sent to the LPAR componentry.||None.|
|MB00593||After a PCI bus error occurs that would require the PCI bus to be reset and recovered, about 2 seconds after the error occur, other IO error events may be received by the partition.||Code has been fixed to remove the erroneous IO error events while the PCI bus is being recovered.||None.|
|MB00594||Error log ID not the same for error entries fromt he same I/O error.||Problem has been fixed so error entries due to the same error will get the same error log ID.||None.|
|MB00595||Hardware recovery on an AIX or LINUX system does not always re-enable interrups. Leaving the devices in a non-functional state.||Device recovery now restores devices to full function.||None.|
|MB00596||Tower concurrent maintenence and DLPAR of slot holding an IOP is failing.||The DLPAR and Tower concurrent
succeed with this fix.
|MB00597||The system may become unresponsive.||The Licensed Internal Code
will be changed so that the
system will not become unresponsive.
|MB00590||Error adding a cpu.||Need to change the cache building scheme in firmware.||None.|
|MB00591||VSCSIDisk not showing up.||Changed calculation and the drives now appear.||None.|
|MB00592||DIAG CD not IPLing in Slave CD/DVD Slot.||Fixed.||None.|
|01SF220_045_045 Impact: Function Severity: Hiper|
|MB00620||Error logs are being incorrectly created during firmware downloads to I/O towers.||Changed the error logs to informational logs only.||N/A|
|01SF220_046_046 Impact: Usability Severity: Hiper|
|MB00624||If an ethernet cable is not plugged into the service processor port, the service processor may not reach standby because the webserver dies causing the service processor to reboot and then hang.||The service processor will configure the adapter even if the network ethernet cable is not plugged in for any port.||Take a regular ethernet cable and connect it in a loop from HMC1 port to HMC2 port of the service processor.|
