Re: Next V7R1 Cumulative PTF



fixed

You got your date answer. However, do NOT just order the cumulative and
call it a day. Order any group you see applicable to you. They come out
more often. Also, you may have the latest and greatest cume, but it may
not have many of the PTF's that are in current groups. IBM is more
restrictive on what appears in a cume than in a group.

Hey, it's not every day you get to put on PTF's. You may as well try to
get as current as you can.

Get the cume. See:
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/main/System+i
http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.nsf/2d3aff1c6b4d6ce086256453000d971e/da65fa217203e8a886257706005073b7?OpenDocument

Get the latest group ptf's. See:
http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.nsf/GroupPTFs?OpenView&Start=1&Count=30&Expand=1#1
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/ibmi/selectFixes?release=V7R1&function=release

Get "recommended PTF's". See:
http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/slkbase.nsf/recommendedfixes
Drill down each topic in "Recommended for specific products or functions".

And, if you're just getting ready to upgrade to 7.1 make sure you have the
latest respin or resave of the media. This will have TR5 on it. See:
