IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 19, Number 25
June 28, 2017 Doug Bidwell
Welcome to your own personal IBM i Patch Wednesday and the IBM i PTF Guide that helps you figure out what patches to apply to your releases so you can keep current and therefore keep optimal in terms of performance, stability, and security.
In this week’s rendition, we see that the High Availability Group has some new fixes for us. I am a week or two late in reporting them for IBM i 7.3 and IBM i 7.2, but they are here and available for us. The newest fixes allow for additional logging for better error determination in special resynch situations on the independent Auxiliary Storage Pool (iASP) storage layer.
There is also a new group for Backup Recovery Solutions. There are no less than 31 fixes and updates for Backup Recovery Media Services (BRMS) hierarchical storage management services, and their requisite licensed internal code (LIC) and operating system (OS) fixes are included in this bundle. If you run BRMS, this looks like a required set of patches.
To help you work through the PTFs, we have included an archive of the IBM i PTF Guide, which you can see below:
