Power Enterprise Pools provide the mechanism to download the pool configuration file for activation codes. Go to download Pool XML configuration file.

IMPORTANT for Power Enterprise Pools (PEP) Automatic Feature Conversions (Feature codes EME0 for memory and EPE0 for processor) on POWER8 servers (9119-MME and 9119-MHE) ordered via MES orders:
EME0 and EPE0 provide both client operational and sales administration benefits. These feature codes automatically generate the removal codes for the static activations which are being converted to mobile activations and put everything into the XML configuration file. Then as long as you are at the minumum FW levels ** or later the conversions are handled without the client manually intervening and with no impact to partitions when the XML file is loaded. Without this enhancement the static deactivations must be handled manually as follows:
1) If there are inactive resources on the server you can move mobile resources to the server, prior to deactivating the static resources, to free the static resources.
2) Ensure that the number of available resources on the server is greater than or equal to the number of static resources to be deactivated. If not, partitions must be downsized to free static activations.
3) Enter the static activation removal code on the HMC.
Note that "mobile-enabled" activations are classified as static activations in the above words.

EME0 and EPE0 are automatically defaulted onto the MES conversion order by e-config, but e-config is not aware of your firmware levels. You need to remove EME0 and EPE0 from the MES order if your server and HMC are not at the minumum FW levels** or later, the XML configuration file will ship from IBM , but it will fail when you try to apply it. You will then need to contact and manually handle the static deactivations.
** Minumum FW levels: 780.50, 820.50, 830.40, and 840.00. HMC:V8R8.4.0
