Did you complete 8.8.4 upgrade?
I'm on 8.8.2, would like to get current.
IBM I Recommended Fixes - HMC Code Updates is only showing to 8.8.1
Is there a newer link or was this page simply not updated?

Thinking about not doing it at this time.
Not because of any concerns about either the HMC upgrade, or the firmware upgrade.
More concerned about biting off more than I can chew at this time. What with kicking the vendor software off that doesn't work with 7.2 and upgrading those lpars up from 7.1 to 7.2.

I plan on upgrading both of my HMC's from 8.8.3 to 8.8.4
and upgrade my 8286's both 41A and 42A, from FW830.10 (68) to FW 840_056
I release that 8.8.4 is a minimum requirement to go to FW840.
Not using any RS232 ports on my AIX lpars.
Any issues with that?
