      PTF MF99004 доступен.

      В ОС введена возможность настройки всех SMT режимов для Power7.
      Изменения задаются в pending режиме и вступают в силу при следущей перезагрузке системы, но все равно это шаг вперед.

      Special Instructions

      Please ensure that you have a SAVSYS before applying this PTF.

      Permanently apply any temporarily applied LIC PTFs on your partition
      before applying this PTF.

      This PTF must be permanently applied.

      Application of this PTF will cause processor multi-tasking mode and
      maximum SMT mode to revert to default values. The default processor
      multi-tasking mode is system controlled, or “2”. The default maximum
      SMT mode is none, or “0”. If mode settings are to be retained across
      application of this PTF, the values must be saved prior to PTF
      application and restored subsequently.

      The following may be issued at Command Entry to retrieve the mode
      settings. The values should be recorded for restoration after PTF
      application.

      For processor multi-tasking mode: DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QPRCMLTTSK)
      For maximum SMT mode: CALL QWCCTLSW PARM(‘1050’ ‘1’)

      The following may be issued at Command Entry to restore the
      previously recorded values, where n is the processor multi-tasking
      mode (i.e., 0,1,2)and m is the maximum SMT mode (i.e. 0,1,2,…).
      Note that these commands change the pending mode. An IPL is
      required for changes in pending mode to affect current mode.

      For processor multi-tasking mode:
      CHGSYSVAL SYSVAL(QPRCMLTTSK) VALUE(‘n’)
      For maximum SMT mode:
      CALL QWCCTLSW PARM(‘1050’ ‘2’ m)

      More information about processor multi-tasking mode and maximum
      SMT mode can be found in the IBM i MI Architecture 7.1,
      instructions MATRMD/MODRMC options hex 18 and hex 36.

      Главный по тарелочкам по IBM I в ответ на автотвитт от aixportal заявил, что IBM не делал такого анонса
      Дык мы не маркетологи…. Для нас важен сам факт выхода mf99004, который замещает все ранее выпущенное для LIC и уже является пререквитом для всех новых фиксов.

      Мы опередили события на пару месяцев
      IBM делает анонс сегодня
      http://ibmsystemsmag.blogs.com/you_and_i/2012/04/live-partition-mobility-tr4-and-more.html
      А у нас tr4 на 90%% систем уже загружен.

      Statement of direction
      IBM intends to enhance its systems management capabilities for Power Systems
      hardware as follows:
      • Continued integration between the base platform management capabilities in
      HMC and advanced capabilities in IBM Systems Director
      • Enhancement of the HMC to add support for Power Systems blades and mixed
      rack and blade server environments
      • New HMC virtual appliance offering
      • New process for transitioning from SDMC to HMC
      • Improved usability
      • Enhancement of HMC to provide RAID 1 support

      IBM intends to provide PowerVM Live Partition Mobility support for IBM i partitions
      on IBM PureFlex Systems.

      IBM plans that POWER6® servers running the IBM i release following 7.1 will not
      support the older, slower HSL/RIO-attached I/O drawers. This planning statement
      does not impact POWER7 clients or IBM i 7.1 clients. POWER7 servers do not
      support HSL/RIO I/O drawers and there is no change to IBM i 7.1 HSL/RIO support.
      IBM i clients who have an HSL/RIO-attached I/O drawer or tower such as the
      features 5094/5294, 0595/5095, 0588/5088, 5790, or 5791/5794 should plan on
      moving to newer 12X-attached I/O drawers on their POWER6 server before moving
      to the release following IBM i 7.1. Note that HSL/RIO I/O drawers or towers are the
      only enclosure that supports IOP adapters on a POWER6 server. Attachment to some
      older devices is only provided through an IOP-based adapter. For example, IOPbased
      communication adapters are required for SDLC/SNA/X.25 device attachment.
      Likewise, an IOP is required for twinax device attachment without a protocol
      converter.

      new HW

      PCIe2 RAID SAS Adapter Dual-port 6Gb (#ESA1, #ESA2)
      A new low profile PCIe Gen2 SAS adapter (#ESA2) is small enough to fit in the 2U Power 710/730 or in the 2U PCIe Riser card of the Power 720/740. It supports SSDs providing RAID 0, 5, 6 and 10 capabilities using a single PCIe slot. A full high version (#ESA1) is available for taller Power Systems PCIe Gen2 slots. Though its overall SSD performance capacity is lower than that of the #5913 PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter announced in October 2011, its ability to fit in 2U space, use of only one PCIe slot, and price performance can be advantageous. Note that there is no VIOS support for this adapter.

      387 GB SFF SSD with eMLC (#ES0B, #ES0D)
      SSD capacity and performance are doubled for SFF SAS bays with a 387 GB eMLC solid state drive (#ES0B/ES0D). These SSDs have twice the capacity of the existing 177GB SSDs and their price per GB is significantly improved.

      PCIe2 4-port 1Gb Ethernet Adapter (#5260, #5899)
      The PCIe2 4-port 1Gb Ethernet Adapter (#5260/5899) offers four copper/UTP Ethernet ports at a significantly lower price than the existing 4-port UTP adapters (#5271/5717).

      PCIe2 LP 8Gb 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter (#EN0Y)
      The PCIe2 LP 8Gb 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter (#EN0Y) is a low profile adapter for Gen2 slots. It is smaller than, but functionally equivalent to, the existing full high 4-port 8Gb adapter (#5729) announced in October 2011. IBM i requires VIOS for this adapter.

      80/160GB DAT160 USB Tape Drive (#EU16)
      The 80/160GB DAT160 USB Tape Drive (#EU16) is enclosed in a Power 720/740/750 system unit and driven through a USB connection. Its drive performance is the same as the existing SAS DAT160 drives (#5619), but it does not use the integrated SAS controller and thus may offer an overall performance advantage to the system. IBM i requires VIOS for this drive.
