It would be really nice if IBM could somehow deposit (like in a data area)
a list of HMC serial numbers for the HMC's that support that serial number.
The physical serial number on the HMC is too small for anyone over 40 to
read.

This would require a refresh procedure of some sort.

I called them on Friday and she asked for the serial number of the HMC and
whether it's a CR2 of CR3. I told her I didn't know the SN and have no
idea what a CCR is. She said it's okay and asked for the SN of the 9406-520
and it got handled the usual way - PMR number and live transfer - even
though I was connected to the HMC group.
Thank for all the replies.

It the "correct" answer according to IBM.

Guess it's not the *correct* answer, but when I call Support
with an HMC problem, I give them the serial number of the
HMC and the release of HMC code. It works for me.

The "correct" answer it to get *ANOTHER support line
contract on the HMC, which you *ALREADY pain too much for.
Otherwise lie your way into the system, and then get
transferred.

If I call the support line for help with the HMC and the
operator asks whether the problem is with the base
operating system as they always do, I should say no;
correct?
