FSM 1.3.4 and p260 firmware - VIO version
« on: October 25, 2015, 08:20:37 PM »
hi guys

I have an FSM version 1.3.1 and preparing to update to 1.3.4.... 1.3.1, 1.3.2, 1.3.3 and last 1.3.4....long way to go by the way.....

I have a doubt if my FSM will be still recognizing my p260 server and its VIO version.... I've heard a coworker from another country who told me that he had to update p260 firmware version since HMC did not recognized it.....

so I am afraid after updating my FSM to 1.3.4 it won't longer see this p260 server or the VIO

thansk a lot

Karlochacon,

Good morning. In order to make sure your p260 has the correct firmware you must consult the Flex Upgrade guide for FSM 1.3.4. This document will show you how to upgrade to make sure all components within the Flex chassis are interoperable.

Thanks!

Thanks, Karlochacon.

For everyones reference, here is a link to the various FSM upgrade guides.

I will be attempting this upgrade to 1.3.4 as well from FSM version 1.3.2 this week. I will start a new thread if any issues are encountered.

My update from 1.3.2 to 1.3.3 failed on compliance check. I had to open a ticket with IBM to get my root/PESH password and then used the following article to resolve.

Take note of the last post and steps to resolve issues with compliance check during upgrade procedure...

karlochacon,

happy to help. Update to 1.3.3 was successful! I'm going to use the same method to go to 1.3.4 as I do not feel like playing games with the FSM today  :P

We have our p460 at FW783.00 (021)

Also FYI, update to 1.3.4 was successful using the same method as I needed for 1.3.3.
