Description

Motivation

From msuchanek:

You will probably want to install this.The process is somewhat cumbersome - about 4GB of some data needs to be placed on some FTP/NFS/SAMBA server, loaded by the HMC, abd then the HMC rebooted.
Relating to https://suse.slack.com/archives/C04K6388YUX/p1710354746297239 in #discuss-powerpc-architecture "vMF68994 iFix is needed for updating firmware using HMC and IBM web site"

Following https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/power9?topic=code-determining-your-hmc-machine-version-release I went to https://powerhmc1.oqa.prg2.suse.org/dashboard/#hmcManagement/console-management and then "Update the Hardware Management Console", selected FTP, dist.suse.de, my username okurz and password and remote directory /dist/IBM/HMC.vMF68994 and the fancy web page found a service package within "vMF68994_x86.iso". Installed and selected reboot of the HMC.
