How to determine your microcode version

To determine the flash microcode level installed on the machine, perform the following steps:
  1) If the SYSTEM is powered ON and AIX is operational, perform
     the following steps:
     a) At the AIX prompt, execute the command:
        lscfg -vl ioplanar0
     b) Refer to the heading "Device Specific (RM)". This field
        contains the flash microcode level. An Example:
        Device Specific.(RM)........3115G4833         05230525
  2) If STANDBY POWER is ON and the Standby Menu is accessible on
     the machine with the key in the service position, check the
     flash level from option "0 Display Configuration".  An
     example screen follows where the flash level is indicated
     after FLASH_FW.  In this example, the flash level is shown
     as "FLASH_FW B950"
