G.1 View code level
The view code level task queries the OSA-ICC microcode level currently active in an
OSA-Express feature. The code level is a four-digit number that relates to a specific
microcode engineering change (EC) and patch (MCL) level.
This information can be useful in the diagnosis of an OSA-Express related problem. You may
be asked by the IBM Remote Technical Support Center or your IBM Service Representative
(IBM CE) for the OSA-Express code level as part of information gathering to analyze a

2. Starting at the Advanced Facilities panel, click View Code level, and click OK. The View
Code Level panel is displayed (Figure G-1).
The four-digit code displayed will vary depending on the specific microcode EC and MCL
level active in the OSA-Express feature. The code will change as microcode maintenance
updates are applied to your System z9 or zSeries server by your IBM CE.
