Integrate Configuration Health Check with Firmware and HMC Code Update Process
This marketing field requirement requests a fundamental change to the way IBM delivers firmware and HMC code updates to customers. Currently warnings and specific details about the installation of a newly released firmware and HMC code are provided through a README file. It is not an integrated part of the installation procedure to do pre- and post-installation health checks to ensure that none of the new features and functions of the release are in conflict with the existing configuration settings and system parameters. Customer Finanz Informatik (FI) request to change the firmware and HMC code delivery to include health check procedures and related warning messages which get displayed during software installation with every new release.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
