IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 23
June 13, 2018 Doug Bidwell
Here we are, back in the Wednesday issue of The Four Hundred where we belong, with the latest updates to the comings and goings of PTF patches for the IBM i platform.
There is a new flight recorder for troubleshooting optical problems – OPT devices, including RDX attached – for IBM i 7.2 and 7.1. Check this link out if you are running any of these. It is a handy thing to know about.
When ordering Cumulative PTF group(s), the DB and HIPER PTFs are included if the order is for your current release. If it is for a release other than that, only the cumulative release will be ordered and the DB and HIPER PTFs for that release must be specifically ordered. See this link for more information on that.
IBM i 7.2 and 7.3 have recommended fixes for Tivoli Directory Server, as of May 18; these are worth looking at!
Here is the defective rundown, with the last defective date for each release:
Defect Defective APAR Fixing Date PTF PTF 7.3 04/20/18 MF64774 MA47056 MF64938 7.2 04/26/18 MF64822 MA47056 MF64937 7.1 04/26/18 MF64827 MA47056 MF64936
Once again, a reminder that the Ocean Users Group Technical Conference is open for registration. It is the best deal of the year. Here is the link in case you were procrastinating! (Just registered myself, see ya there!)
