how to update my hmc

hi

We need to update to the latest fix/service pack our HMC. See the version in the image attached.
I was looking at fix central in the HMC tab  but our machine-model does not appear..

 hmc
Also,  I see HMC is shown in some tabs and I don't know which is the correct. See image

 hmc2
Can you give me a hint?

Thanks.

You need to select "Firmware and HMC" and then select the machine/model of a power4/5/6 server connected to HMC.  In the next screen, select only "HMC Firmware".

Hi,

the newest version is 7.7.3.x

To upgrade you must use the HMC 7.7.3 Recovery Media MH01255, available from Fix Central.

Instructions how to use Recovery Media for upgrading are here:

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/hmcl/power6/install/v7.Rinstall.html

and here:

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/hmcl/power6/install/v7.Recover_Upgradep6.html

Next. upgrade to SP1 using the HMC Service Pack MH01265, also from Fix Central, and the mandatory Efix MH01272.
Install the remaining Efixes if needed. Check the "Descriptions" to decide.

Instructions are here:

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/hmcl/power6/install/v734.Update_CD.html

The Fix Central path to the fixes:

http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/

- Product Group: Power

- Continue

- Continue
- HMC package selection: Leave all boxes checked to download all Media and Fixes (8.395.853.824 bytes!), or get them one by one.

- Continue
- Agree to License Agreement

When done follow the instructions whose links I provided above.
