firmware upgrade, serviceable events and HMC

The manual recommends to close all “serviceable” events before performing a firmware upgrade. If there are a few events, then their “closing” can easily be done from the HMC GUI using the Manage Serviceable Events task (click on wrench icon within HMC GUI to access the task). You can use the task to view service events and select one or multiple events to close.
However, the easiest and quickest way to close many service events is from the HMC command line using following command.

# chsvcevent -o closeall
