IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 22, Number 33
August 19, 2020 Doug Bidwell
It’s August so that means it’s HIPERS season for the IBM i PTF guide. You will find HIPERS in the guide for the following PTF Groups: PTF Groups 7.4, PTF Groups 7.3, PTF Groups 7.2, and PTF Groups 7.1. Other than that, there’s not much else to report. We have no new or update links to report, and no new defectives this week (08/15/20).
We do have a tip: When visiting the doctor for a routine checkup, take a phone charger and an overnight bag, just in case. When you walk in the door and your temperature shows high, you will get stuck in COVID quarantine until your test comes back negative. What I anticipated to be a one-hour visit turned into two and a half days, and I did not have COVID. It was a long period of high anxiety for everyone!
Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
