HMC Migration from 6.1.3 to 7.x

www.unixbabuforum.inI have an HMC which is in version 6.1.3 and I need to migrate to a 7.x and 
I have 3 Managed nodes connected this HMC and all these Nodes firmware are 
at latest level. I need to know set of procedure to convert the HMC to 7.X 
level. Also is there any firmware upgrade that needs to be performed at the 
HMC. 
www.unixbabuforum.inWhat to do is documented with the hmc files under power code matrix. 
http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/po wer5cm/power5.html
www.unixbabuforum.inDownload the HMC upgrade ISO files and burn to CD. 
Download the HMC hardware firmware update and follow the instructions. 
Purchase some DVD-RAM media for backing up the critical data. 

Perform the critical data backup. 
perform the hardware firmware upgrade following the instructions provided in the firmware package. 
boot from the HMC upgrade CD1 media and following the instructions on the screen.

Expect it to take around 4 hours to complete the procedure. 

Make sure that the firmware on all the managed systems is compatible with the new version of the HMC being deployed.
