IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 19
May 14, 2018 Doug Bidwell
We like to keep you on your toes here at the IBM i PTF Guide, and this week we are popping up at the tail end of the Monday edition of The Four Hundred instead of the usual Wednesday edition. This will happen from time to time, as the publishing schedule for the newsletter changes, so don’t get nervous. The IBM i PTF Guide and The Four Hundred carry on, as always.
So, without further ado, let’s get to the patches. First up, V7R3 has a new DB2 Group – with a whopping 94 PTFs added. (Whew! Somebody’s working overtime!). Check the link in the V7R3 tab of the Guide.
There is a big push on out there for everyone to go to V7R3, and this is true for a number of reasons. If I had more time, I would elaborate, but maybe I can get TPM to tell you all about it. Both of us have a lot on our plates most days. . . .
If you are running 5733-ICC – Cloud Storage Solutions for i, you may want to be aware of the “Must Gather” requirements for this product. Check this link.
The guide is undergoing some modernization (everybody else is using that word, figured I’d try it out!). I moved some of the links from the release tabs to the links tab, and I am working on some others. Let me know what you think when you get a minute.
Below is the usual archive of the IBM i PTF Guide to help you work through the PTFs in chronological order:
