IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 20, Number 40
October 10, 2018 Doug Bidwell
There’s been some action on the PTF front with HIPERs and Security Groups for all releases this week. We also see that MGTools is updating again, with new stuff every week or two there. Again, there were no new links this week, but keep checking our handy guide to make sure you are staying up to date.
Quick sidebar on some interesting messages you’ll hear when you call IBM Service for support. It seems there won’t be any phone support for Sev2 and lower after October 15. We’re guessing that will result in an uptick in number of Sev 1, but we’ll keep you posted….
On that note, below is the defective PTF rundown for each release, but be sure to access the link in the guide for your release for further details.
