January 22, 2020 Doug Bidwell
We are rolling along and singing a PTF song here as January is ramping up and everyone working on IBM i is getting back to work after the holidays.
First of all, the new J-Resave for 7.3 has been tested on a slip of the LIC, which we have been talking about for the past month, and it works! So this is very good news for customers who have created logical partitions without the Hardware Management Console (HMC). The default SST profiles Expired Passwords after PTF upgrade – see this link: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/1127871. And here is the rest of the action:
- New HIPER group for 7.4, 7.3
- New Hardware and Related PTF group for 7.4, 7.3
- New High Availability Group for 7.4, 7.3
- New HTTP Server group for 7.4
- New TCP/IP group for 7.2
