My issue is that sure, you can download the commands.. but the date format
is incorrect so you have to change them all.

Subject: Automatically getting new Update Access Keys

There's supposed to be ways of automatically getting new Update Access
Keys for your Power systems in order to be able to apply firmware updates,
etc.
The problem I basically have is, to my belief, you still have to go to the
ESS site, My Entitled Hardware, Update Access Keys, Actions, Generate new
key.
Why in the sacred name of Elvis can't it just generate the new keys
automatically, like 30 days before expiration? What's the point of setting
up automatic updating on the HMC and/or standalone system, if you still
have to manually generate the new keys?

ESS site:
https://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/ess/ProtectedServlet.wss

UAK links:
Management of POWER8 and Later Update Access Keys

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/management-power8-and-later-update-access-keys

Order and Apply new UAK on Stand Alone IBM i or HMC-Managed POWER8 or
POWER9 servers.
