Power8 and Power9 servers use UAK (Update Access Key) for firmware updates. There is warranty period and maintenance period. There is no possibility to generate UAK in warranty period (in last 30 days of warranty period) that extend expiration date to the date in maintenance period. Customers get warnings about UAK expiration of UAK but he is not able to generate new UAKs with extend expiration date. It is annoying to get warnings and have no chance to correct it.
