The reason I asked this question is that I'm getting ready to put on C6255530 on my test box that is HMC managed. The only fixes that I can tell hit the server Firmware is MH00626 and it affects Fix Pack 01SF240_219, which is the Level on The HMC we are at. I noticed that SF240_261 is out. I think I'll wait until the next cum level to upgrade. Thanks Joel B.

I also would like to know since we have never done any upgrades on the FSP or HMC since it was installed over a year ago. Once we had a problem connecting the console after replacing the mother board in our i5 520. The processor heat sink came apart. The CE downloaded a fix to the HMC to re-establish the console. Outside of that, no updates.

Do you upgrade as soon as one if available, or do you wait until you need to upgrade the Firmware on the I5? Just wanted to poll every one to see what their HMC upgrade policy is.
