IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 41
October 16, 2019 Doug Bidwell
We were busy at IBM Systems Technology University in Las Vegas last week and also had to chew through the Technology Refreshes for IBM i 7.3 and IBM i 7.4, so we are not our normal chatty selves here at the IBM i PTF Guide. Please do forgive.
So what’s new, you ask? There are new HIPER groups on all four releases. Yes, even IBM i 7.1, with MF66663, which deals with hard disk issues. That’s enough excitement for one week, really.
New (or Updated) Links this week: None this week, busily gleaning useful tidbits from TechU calls material!
And now for your tip: Don’t live in the land of Shake and Bake unless you are prepared to do both! And living in that very land of California, we know a thing or two about this.
The Guide at a glance: There are new defectives this week (10/12/19). Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
