Question No : 1 - (Topic 1)
Question No : 2 - (Topic 1)
internal program load path, which are not activated until the next time the server is shut
down and restarted.

firmware can be loaded on each LPAR at a different time and only becomes active when
the LPAR is shutdown and restarted.
C. Deferred firmware can only be applied during an outage to the managed system as it will
automatically shut the managed system down during its installation.
D. Concurrent firmware is only for minor fixes to the system mircocode while deferred
firmware contains major fixes to the service processor.
