IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 1
January 14, 2019 Doug Bidwell
The new thing is that it is 2019, and I am convinced it will be a better year.
In Volume 21, Number 1 of the IBM i PTF Guide, the first of the new year, there is a whole bunch going on. There are HIPER groups and new patches for Db2 Web Query for i V2.2.1 all around on the current releases – that means IBM i 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3. And there is a new Backup and Recovery groups, a new HTTP group, and a new MGTools group for the newer IBM i 7.3 and 7.2 releases.
The new link in the Guide this week is for Performance Manager/400, and it is in regards to disabling PM Agent for V6R1M0 and higher releases of the platform.
Apropos of nothing bit being helpful, here is a tip: Did you know that if you wanted to copy a spool file, you could SNDNETSPLF to a user on the same system with a different outq?
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (1/5/19), and we are still going for a new record! Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
