Re: HMC 7.7.5 Support

But if you click this, I don't see 7.7.5 here either:

Paul, I tihnk I see what your talking about now, if you click those 3
links where it says power6. I would read that as you can only go to 7.7.4.

But disregard whether or not it's Power 5, 6, or 7, the link below takes
you to a place where there is no indication that 7.7.5 even exists.

Now why would he select POWER if he has a POWER5?? :-) Honestly that
unit is to IBM a 'System i' as that's what it was when manufactured and
for most items you really do want to start down the correct path or it can
be difficult to get the right combination of firmware etc.

I think what Paul's after is that it seems IBM is 'trying' to tell him
not to go to 7.750. However on the supported versions table it IS shown as
legit to connect a 7.750 HMC to a POWER5 with appropriate firmware.

It seems odd to me that I'm able to order HMC 7.7.5 and there's SP1
available but when I go to this URL,
http://www-304.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/power5cm/supportedcode.html,
I can click on supported code combinations under Power 7, Power 6 or
Power 5
then click on High-End, Mid-Range, or Entry-Level systems and they
all show V7R7.4 as the latest level. Am I missing something or did
that last
remaining QA/web site maintenance staff member at IBM finally retire?
I'd
like to feel comfortable putting all my HMC's at 7.7.5 and I think I
do but seeing it on this web site would be good.
