Notes:
1. For information about the entitlements included with InfoSphere Warehouse 9.7.2.1, see the following technote.
2. Manually updating the Tivoli SA MP level is recommended for the BI stack. Tivoli SA MP 3.1.0.7 includes a fix for a problem relating to the frequency at which resource monitor commands run. Installing this level of the software automatically updates the RSCT level to 2.5.5.2. RSCT 2.5.5.2 includes efix 166676, which resolves a problem that causes a GPFS-managed file system to go offline when the file system becomes full. If you manually update the AIX level on the BI nodes to 6.1 TL6 SP1, RSCT 3.1.0.1 is automatically installed.
3. An IBM Smart Analytics System fix pack (1.2.2.0) is available for systems installed with the IBM Smart Analytics System Control Console. This fix pack upgrades the software stack to the new levels on the management node, the core warehouse nodes, and the warehouse applications nodes. For more information about this fix pack, see the following technote.
4. All software is 64-bit unless otherwise indicated. All DB2 features must be at the same level as the ESE software.

Notes:
1. Customers with an HMC model 7042-CR4 might instead have firmware level V7 R3.4.0 SP2 with mandatory efix MH01181. There is no need to upgrade to the level listed for model 7042-CR5.
2. As of March 31 2010, upgrading the IBM Power 550 firmware version to EL350_039 is recommended to address a problem that causes false B181F126 events to be logged and reported.
3. As of March 31 2010, upgrading the dual port Fibre Channel adapter version to 271315 is recommended to fix a critical error. With the previously recommended level (271102), the firmware sometimes reports a false error that causes the device driver to take the adapter off-line with instructions to replace the adapter.
