IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 23
June 12, 2019 Doug Bidwell
Hello once again, good people of IBM i Land, and welcome to the 23rd edition of the IBM i PTF Guide for 2019. This time around, there is an update for the required PTF list to support SAP applications running on IBM i 7.3. There is also a new version of MGTools for IBM i 7.1, IBM i 7.2, and IBM i 7.3 – and we note that it has been quite a while since we have seen an update for IBM i 7.1 on this front.
New (Updated) Links this week:
- ASMI: Accessing the ASMI using a Web browser
- Hardware: Resetting a HMC-Managed System to a Stand-alone Non-Partitioned Server
- WAS: How to install/update the IBM Installation Manager product on IBM i OS using the IBM Web Administration for i GUI
And now, for a tip: Think about setting your IBM i for SNTP, if you haven’t already.
