IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 30
August 5, 2019 Doug Bidwell
It is definitely summer in IBM i PTF Land. There are a few things to report this week, but not the deluge it has been in prior weeks. There are updates to the Backup and Recovery Group for IBM i 7.4, 7.3 and 7.2, and the SAP 7.1 Final update. There is also a new MGTOOLS for all of the current releases.
As for tips, August 1 was National Water Balloon Day, and we did not know there was such a thing. But it is the first Friday every August. Go figure. We will be going through new and updated links in next week’s issue, since we ran out of time because of other projects this week. It be like that sometimes. . . .
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (7/27/19). Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
