IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 9
March 4, 2019 Doug Bidwell
This week, the new PTFs coming out of IBM are just for WebSphere Application Server 8.5, and only on IBM i 7.2 and IBM i 7.3. There isn’t much going on otherwise, and this is a blessing, most definitely not a curse.
I have added a bunch of new links to the spreadsheet that encompasses the IBM i PTF Guide, and these include:
- IWS/IAS: How To Change the Ports Used by IBM IAS v8.5 and IWS v2.6 Servers
- WireShark: Instructions for Collecting a Wireshark PC Sniffer Trace
- AFP: Are AFP Utilities and AFP supported on IBM i 7.3?
And now, it is time for your weekly tip: Have you noticed the Toolbar and the Toolbar Text on the new ACS Green Screen? Time to get productive! Did you notice that you can add a URL with an icon to the Toolbar?
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (3/2/19), and we are still going for a new record! Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
