PTF MH01616 HMC V8 R8.5.0 Recovery Media and Mandatory PTF
This package represents the
Recovery image that can be used to upgrade your HMC from HMC V8
R8.3.0 or higher to HMC V8 R8.5.0. This package can also be used
to install a clean version of HMC V8 R8.5.0. You can also
reference this package by APAR MB04002 and PTF MH01616. The
mandatory PTF is APAR MB04003 and PTF MH01617.
Note 1: During the upgrade to V8 R8.5.0, the
local session will display a list of environment variables for
hmcmanager (last line is "END ENV") for as long as 20 to 40
minutes without a screen change. Do not reboot HMC or
power off; wait for the upgrade to complete.
Note 2: Mandatory fix MH01617 must be installed
using the classic GUI or the CLI updhmc command.
Note 3: The recovery images have been refreshed to avoid
a potential install issue on CR9 systems returning "the current
system does not have a valid machine type/model". It is
recommended customers obtain the new image to perform upgrades
or installs. See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1021409
for more info.
Package information (recovery media size and
checksum updated 6/20/16)
The following Power8 systems are supported by this level
of HMC V8 R8.5.0:
IBM Power System S812L (8247-21L)
IBM Power System S822L (8247-22L)
IBM Power System S822 (8284-22A)
IBM Power System S814 (8286-41A)
IBM Power System S824 (8286-42A)

IBM Power System E870 Server (9119-MME)
IBM Power System E850, (8408-E8E)
IBM Power System E880 Server (9119-MHE)
HMC V8 R8.5.0 continues to provide support for Power6 and
Power7 based systems.
POWER5 servers are not supported from HMC V8. Attempts to
manage POWER5 servers will result in a connection state of
Version Mismatch and connection_error_code "Connection not
HMC V8 R8.5.0 supports the following HMC models:
Rack Mount: CR5, CR6, CR7, CR8, CR9, and OE1
HMC V8 does not support models CR2, CR3, CR4 and
C03, C04, C05, C06, C07.
In HMC V8, Classic GUI requires 2GB memory and Enhanced
GUI requires 4GB memory. If you run over 300 partitions,
it is recommended to have 8GB memory.
The HMC must be version V8 R8.3.0 or later to be upgraded
to HMC V8 R8.5.0. This requirement is enforced during
When two HMCs manage the same server, both HMCs must be at
the same version.
If a server is connected to two different versions (i.e.,
Version 7 and Version 8) of the HMC, the higher version HMC
will upgrade the partition configuration (profile data of
the system) to the latest version. After the partition
configuration upgrade, lower levels of the HMC will not be
able to interpret the data correctly. After the server is
managed by the higher version of the HMC, you must first
initialize the server before you use the lower version of
the HMC. Also, initialize the CEC using lower version of HMC
again. You can restore a backup that is taken at the older
level or re-create the partitions. If the server is not
initialized with lower version of HMC, one of the following
outcomes can occur depending on the version of the
HMC Version 8 Release 8.1.0, 8.2.0, 8.3.0 and 8.4.0
report a connection error of Version mismatch with
reference code Save Area Version Mismatch if the server
has been managed by Version 8.5.0.
HMC Version 7 Release 7.8.0 and 7.9.0 report a
connection error of Version mismatch with reference code
Save Area Version Mismatch if the server has been
managed by Version 8.
HMC Version 7 Release 7.8.0 reports a connection error
of Version mismatch with reference code Save Area
Version Mismatch if the server has been managed by
Release 7.9.0 or Version 8.
HMC Version 7 Release 7.7.0 and earlier might report a
server state of Incomplete or Recovery if the server has
been managed by a later version and / or release. In
addition, partition configuration corruption may occur.
It is recommended to have all connected VIOS servers on
the latest level i.e. VIOS level 220.127.116.11. To have optimal
performance from the Enhanced+ UI, make sure all VIOS are at
2.2.3.X level or above.
All running partitions (AIX Linux and VIOS) running RSCT
3.2 should be at RSCT 18.104.22.168 or higher. It is recommended
to have AIX 6.1 TL9 with SP5 or higher, and AIX 7.1 TL3 with
SP5 or higher; these SP levels contain RSCT 22.214.171.124.
Compatibility for DLPAR/RSCT on the LPARs with the HMC
requires that the csm.client fileset on AIX be updated to
126.96.36.199 or higher where the IBM.MCP communication path was
implemented to properly communicate with the HMC. Otherwise
DLPAR communication may fail to establish communication
After upgrading to HMC V8 R8.5.0, the local HMC display
may show a blank screen or "out of range" message when using
non-IBM displays or KVMs.
To resolve the issue:
- Use a remote ssh session to enable the new display
chhmc -c dispcfg -s enable
- Reboot the HMC
- During boot up, use the display configuration utility to
select the correct resolution for the display.
If remote ssh is not available or a reboot does not display
the configuration utility perform a soft reset at
Soft reset: will set display configuration to default HMC
Reboot the HMC and when the grub menu is displayed hit ‘e’
to enter edit mode. Edit and add "dispcfg-reset=soft" before
"insmodpost=sub_storage". Once the line is edited, hit
enter to commit the change. Then type 'b' to continue boot.
For partitions enabled with Remote Restart or Simplified
Remote Restart, if storage/network changes are made using
VIOS CLI, without going through the HMC, the user
should run the HMC refdev command to refresh the partition
configuration data stored for remote restart. For more
information on Simplified Restart go to DeveloperWorks.

enterprise pool, and all servers in the pool no longer
have to be connected to all of the HMCs or to the master
HMC for the pool.
General performance improvements across Enhanced+ UI
Display Configuration Utility enhancement
A new display configuration menu will be displayed
during the HMC startup process. User will be able to
configure the display device type and resolution modes.
The new menu will be shown prior to the two existing
configuration menus used for configuring the locale and
keyboard settings. The menu can be enabled/disabled using
the CLI command chhmc.
Per-migration based profile override for inactive
In addition to the existing sever-wide profile override,
HMC also allows you to specify a per-migration based
profile override for migrating an inactive partition. This
override allows you to specify the current partition
configuration or the last activated profile to be used to
create the migrating partition on the target managed
system. If you do not specify this override, the existing
server-wide override value will be used. If you do not
specify the server-wide override, the current partition
configuration will be used.
Enhanced pedbg command to include additional files
such as sftp.log.
Fixed an issue where the Console Window > Open Terminal
Window task fails to open a vterm window when launched from
the local HMC and the HMC does not have internet access.
Fixed a problem where Wake On Lan (WOL) failed on model
7042-CR9 even though it showed as enabled.
Fixed a problem where chhwres -r virtualio command
incorrectly fail with error HSCL350B when run by a user with
a customized task role that was authorized to the command.
Fixed a problem where Transmit Service Data task for a
specific PMH will fail unless the target PMH was entitled
for the HMC sending the data.
Fixed a rare problem that can result in the server having
a persistent incomplete state due to damage in the server's
hardware discovery cache.
Fixed an issue where a USB flash device may not be
properly detected when added/removed during HMC reboots or
Fixed an issue where users with a custom resource role may
take over a minute longer to log in and render GUI.
Fixed an error message to correctly display accurate
information when a VIOS returns VRM_DATA_BASE_FAIL to
contact software support. New messages text "HSCLA49C The
Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) partition returned error
VRM_DATA_BASE_FAIL. Contact your service representative."
Fixed an issue when exporting a SVG diagram (network,
storage, vNIC, etc.) as a PDF file the complete
configuration was not captured. New options are provided to
select portrait/landscape or Image scaled: Horizontal or
Fixed an issue where a managed system may go into an
Incomplete state after removing I/O hardware due to stale
data in the hardware discovery cache causing an unhandled
Remote Restart Auto Clean up functionality is disabled if
PowerVC is Orchestator.
Fixed a report of serviceable event E3551081 for a
temporary error accessing the Remote HMC menu locally on the
HMC to be an informational SRC and not call home.
Fixed a problem that may result in serviceable events
E3690102, E3550996, E3550103, and E3550101 being generated
during PTF installation.
Fixed an issue where diag service events reporting SRNs
such as 26D3-129 were delayed in reporting to the HMC until
a reboot either of the lpar or HMC triggered the old event
to show up on the HMC.
Command line changes
The following commands have been enhanced to support
multiple HMCs for Power enterprise pools: chcodpool,
lscodpool, and mkcodpool.
The diagrmc command has been enhanced to check
for RMC connection issues between HMCs managing a Power
The migrlpar command has been enhanced to provide
a profile policy override for inactive partition migration
operations. The profile policy specifies whether the last
activated profile for the partition or the current
configuration of the partition is to be used for the
The --requirerr option has been added to the migrlpar
command to specify how the simplified remote restart
capability for migrating partitions is to be handled.
New options have been added to the rrstartlpar command to
simplified partition remote restart operations when
the source managed system is in No Connection state
simplified partition remote restart operations when
the destination managed system is managed by a different
HMC than the source managed system
specification of virtual fibre channel adapter
mappings and the destination shared processor pool for
simplified partition remote restart operations
configuration of automatic clean up on source managed
systems after successful remote restart operations
A new command, lsrrstartlpar, has been added to
display partition remote restart information.
The --nodetails option has been added to the chlparstate
and rrstartlpar commands to suppress the
display of detail messages.
The --admin option has been added to the viosvrcmd
command to allow the specified command to run as root on
the Virtual I/O Server.
The --nopreaccept option has been added to the updlic
command to prevent the previously activated LIC updates
from automatically being accepted prior to starting the
The chhmc and lshmc commands have been
enhanced to configure and display network static routing
information for the HMC.
The lshmc command has been enhanced to display
the firewall settings for the HMC.
The chhmc command has been enhanced to
enable/disable the new display configuration menu getting
shown during the HMC startup process.
RMC code on partition does not support two HMC
connections with mixed configuration i.e. one HMC
running in NIST mode and other one in non-NIST mode.
Both the HMCs must be in the same mode.
HMC uses RSA 2048 type keys to communicate with LPARs.
When user removes HMC V8 R8.5.0 and connects an older
level HMC (i.e HMC V8 R8.2.0 or before), it will drive
NIST mode on the LPARs to be disabled. However the LPARs
would continue to use RSA 2048 type keys so there would
be connection establishment issue. To resolve this
problem, the LPAR admin should run '/usr/sbin/rsct/bin/chsecmode
-c none -m rsa512' command on all the
corresponding LPARs (This command can't be run if LPAR
is running any HA software like TSA, PowerHA).
In non-NIST mode:
Following ciphers are not supported although the
available cipher list shows them.
this function is fully supported for all other Power systems
assuming that the appropriate HMC, firmware and PowerVM
To ensure that the keyboard mapping is working properly
for non-English keyboards, the codeset for the locale must
be set to UTF-8. You can change the codeset by using the
chhmc command. Example:
Set the locale to French with UTF-8 codeset for use with
French keyboard. chhmc -c locale -s modify -l fr_FR.UTF-8
Set the locale to English with UTF-8 codeset for use with
French keyboard. chhmc -c locale -s modify -l en_US.UTF-8
HMC V8 R8.3.0 to V8 R8.5.0 upgrade script replaces the
default templates during the upgrade process. Any changes
performed on the V8 R8.3.0 default template will be
overwritten. HMC V8 R8.3.0 to V8 R8.5.0 upgrade script will
add the Quick Start Templates to the existing Template
Library and the user can delete the older Starter Templates
VIOS installation is supported only through Add VIOS
In Enhanced+ UI, Manage VIOS -> Add Logical Host
Ethernet Adapter page once user has performed add and remove
of same HEA port, the HMC does not display the port again
for addition. As a workaround launch the Add Logical Host
Ethernet Adapter page again.
When a Virtual Ethernet Adapter is created using Enhanced
GUI and the next adapter is created using Classic GUI, the
Slot that is used in Enhanced GUI will be shown as Available
and set as the default in Classic GUI. If the user
tries to create on that slot an error is thrown to the user
stating the slot is not available. Circumvention is for the
user to modify the slot to the next available slot.
The Enhanced+ UI login mode does not support disconnected
sessions like the Classic UI mode. In the Enhanced+ UI mode
a session logoff is a logoff and a session disconnect is
also a logoff. This means that the user cannot reconnect to
the Enhanced+ UI session to resume the task(s) from where it
had left off. Every login via the Enhanced+ mode creates a
new session. For more details on long running tasks, please
refer to the link below : https://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/POWER8/p8eh6/p8eh6_loginmode.htm
With Power Enterprise Pools, configuration changes made
via CLI while the GUI is already opened may not be correctly
reflected in the GUI even if the refresh button is
used. Circumvention is to use the browser'age refresh
(F5) to get the latest value.
When creating a system plan for a 8282_22A server, the
image shown for the 8284_22A system incorrectly shows the
Expanded View. The issue has no functional impact.
When selecting a different Shared Processor Pool on the
Shared Processor Pool panel using the enhanced login, the
GUI is not refreshing the current values to reflect the
newly selected pool. The cirucmvention is to
click "Save" after changing the Shared Processor Pool then
close and re-launch the enhanced UI.
When there is a communication error between the browser
and HMC, the user will see a default message that states
"Click Here" to reload" however the "Click Here" option will
cause the UI to hang. The circumvention is to
take note of any unsaved data and reload the panel by using
the F5 button (refresh the browser) or by logging off and
If you perform a Power enterprise pool change operation on
a server that is also the destination of a running partition
migration operation, that Power enterprise pool operation
will not complete until the partition migration operation
completes. In addition, other Power enterprise pool
operations, including loading the Power enterprise pool GUI,
on any of the managing HMCs for the pool may also hang until
the partition migration completes. The circumvention
is to wait until any active migrations complete before
making changes to an enterprise pool.
The "All Shared Storage Pool Clusters" will not launch
successfully if any of the Virtual I/O Server managed by the
HMC is not configured properly. This includes the Virtual
I/O Servers that are not Nodes in the Shared Storage Pool
Clusters in the HMC. Use ALL Systems relational view from
which you can view all the partition grouped by System. In
this view we can easily see the partition been migrated from
one system to the other. In some rare situations, especially
with a Firefox browser, the user may be redirected to a
second login page after having provided and validated
Then, providing the credentials again will fail. If this
issue occurs the user should close and re-launch the browser
to make it work.
When concurrently managing the Power enterprise pool, a
Power enterprise pool administrator may encounter unexpected
pool resource assignment data changes due to the other
concurrent operations done by a Power enterprise pool
administrator using the GUI. This is due to the Power
enterprise pool GUI caching pool resource assignment data
that may get stale after other pool operations are done thus
overwriting the newer pool data with stale data. Note that
if pool resource changes are done via the GUI all of the
resource data will be submitted as the change.
So for example, a GUI user in the concurrent management
scenario who only changes the memory resource assignment
could overwrite a new processor resource assignment with the
stale cached processor resource assignment. And this
could happen in the reverse case where the user updates only
the processor assignment and the stale cached memory
assignment overwrites the newer memory assignment.
From the Enhanced+ HMC, click on HMC management icon in
the toolbar, then open the Console Management page. Click
the Schedule Operation link. The panel which is launched is
not correct. In order to schedule an operation against the
HMC, please use the Classic GUI.
Enabling or disabling service processor redundancy is only
permitted when both Primary and Secondary Service Processors
are at standby with Service Processor in Position A as
Primary. The workaround is to set up FSP failover with the
following command: chsyscfg -m <server
name> -r sys -i "sp_failover_enabled=1"
When customers upgrade from V8 R8.1.0 to V8 R8.5.0 (V8
R8.1.0 to V8 R8.3.0 and then subsequent updgrade to V8
R8.5.0 without login to UI), any users which existed in V8
R8.1.0 will remain but with default user settings.
Opening multiple PCM Dashboard windows for the same
managed server on the same browser or different browser may
lead to a communication error on the window that was opened
first. This is a known issue and the support for multiple
PCM Dashboard windows is planned for future
After Templates copy to Templates Library/OS image page,
the dashboard navigation is disabled. This is a known issue
and work around is to open another window from the context
menu and click on cancel will clear the navigation issue.
If the System Templates deploy fails due to the installed
VIOS going to Open Firmware state, then user can open
Virtual Terminal for the VIOS and execute "boot" on the Open
Firmware prompt to boot the VIOS.
If after install no GUI launches, and you only see the CLI
localhost login under the heading "Base release 7.4. Dev
(hmc7_4p) on an x86_64", it's an indication that the HMC
code is not installed, and only the Operating System has
been put on disk. Causes could be that the date in UEFI is
not the current date/year or DVD media issues. Set the
date using the UEFI Setup Utility to be the current date and
year, then attempt reinstall. Try different media if
the date/year is correct.
Virtual terminal (vterm) applet will not launch in the
supported version of chrome (42 or higher).
When installing VIOS using Enhanced+UI mode, the profile
name should be the default profile.
For the Virtual HMC offering, call home for serviceable
events with a failing MTMS of the HMC itself is
disabled. Those serviceable events should be manually
reported to IBM software support.
Before restoring critical console data, after the 850
Recovery DVD install mandatory PTF must be installed, prior
to attempting a restore operation.
Serviceable event E2FF4304 may be reported during PTF
installation and can be ignored.
Serviceable event E35F0010 may still be reported on an
upgrade from certain levels if the fixes at the prior
version were not installed before upgrade. This event
indicates that an error occurred migrating the HMC user
profile properties. Customized user profile settings
will be lost and reset to their default. To
recover, edit the user profiles and reset the settings.
Serviceable Event E2FF1801 may be generated during
transmissions for Scheduled Software Information tasks and
can be ignored.

The vHMC provides images in 3 additional formats to allow for
quick deployment of the vHMC on either ESXi, KVM or Xen
hypervisors. These images are snapshots of the virtual machine
and allow for quick deployment of the HMC.
Support for the Xen hypervisor is new for the V8R850 HMC.
A feature of the vHMC is the activation engine which allows
you to preconfigure the HMC Console by passing configuration
information to the HMC at the first boot of the HMC, when
using these images.
Please look at the on-line Knowledge Center documentation on
using the Activation
To see if you are running on a virtual HMC use the lshmc
-v command. If it displays a UVMID field, then you are
running in a virtual machine.
When deploying a virtual HMC, if the mac address is not
specified, it will be generated by the hypervisor.
Network configuration on the HMC relies on the value of
MAC addresses. If you re-deploy a new virtual HMC and want
to restore critical console data previously taken on a
virtual HMC, ensure sure you are using the same MAC
When using Activation Engine to setup NTP configuration,
you must specify the NTP version value.
The Activation Engine currently does not provide
configuration of DHCP Server on virtual HMC.

common to the Power Hardware management console (HMC) and are
available at IBM Fix
The splash panel information (lshmc -V output) for the vHMC
will be the same as
for the HMC recovery DVD that is documented in the above
Installation guidance for installing the vHMC into your
hypervisor are found in the online Knowlege
Center. Installation procedures may vary depending on
the operating system you use and the hypervisor you use.
The mandatory PTF must be installed immediately after
installing the virtual machine image. The Mandatory PTF
is available on Fix Central.
