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? - _Section2

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?
