In this week’s issue, take note of the Defective PTFs for your release (see details below) with an issue of Ethernet frames being dropped running on IBM i 7.2 and IBM i 7.3.
MF65215 – SAL Cannot Search From or To 20 – This is new in the Hardware and related PTFs group:
- V7R3 SF99875
- V7R2 SF99775

If you’re migrating from Power8 to Power9, you are gonna want to get the latest HIPER group. There is a HIPER fix for:
