January 11, 2021 Doug Bidwell
This is the first IBM i PTF Guide of 2021, so we wish everyone a Happy New Year and we are declaring here and now that 2021 will be a better year than 2020, and as it is written, so let it be done.
Here is the rundown of PTF Groups by IBM i release level:
PTF Groups 7.4:
PTF Groups 7.3:
PTF Groups 7.2:
PTF Groups 7.1:
- Nothing, as is usually the case unless something really funky is going on. And considering that Big Blue is now supporting IBM i 7.1 on logical partitions on Power9 machinery, maybe there should be some TCP/IP updates here, too.
New (or Updated) Links for this week:
- WebQuery: Web Query-PTFs and On-going Service
- System: Standard and Keyed Media Set – Master List
Tips/Definitions: Please, be safe! Mask, distance, and wash your hands – can’t hurt, can only help. Thank You!
