IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 10
March 14, 2018 Doug Bidwell
The good times keep on rolling with the Spectre Meltdown (SM) updates. There are new HIPER and Security Groups this week, and most of the required PTFs are on one group or the other, except for one in each release. If you need to tackle it this week, the recommendation is to apply both the HIPER and Security groups, plus the one additional fix, for each release.
Depending on your system and its proc/mem configuration, it will take from 15 minutes to 30 minutes longer to apply the Tech Refresh.
MQ for IBM i also has a new Group level out. It’s the regular quarterly update and it’s good stuff!
