Re: Power 8 and 7.1TR8



fixed

Curiouser and curiouser. According to the response to the PMR I opened, TR8 is on the cume but the group is not updated!

MF99008 definitely came down when we ordered 1398. We did not order it explicitly.

MF99008 I have installed as of 5/914, PTF was created 2/14/14.
TR8 due out June 6.
The next cumulative package is scheduled for 20 June 2014.

So time for some serious PTF planning.

Ok, once again, MF99008 is NOT TR8. It is "LIC Base Function to Enable Technology Refresh". It is the enabling ptf to make your system ready for TR8.
It is not currently on any cume media as per
http://www-912.ibm.com/systems/electronic/support/a_dir/as4ptf.nsf/ALLPTFS/MF99008
That cume is quite old by the way.
It is not supposed to be on the hiper, based on
http://www-912.ibm.com/systems/electronic/support/s_dir/SLINE003.NSF/PTFbyNumber/SF99709
However, there's always the possibility that some PTF got added to the hiper which would then require MF99008 and download it as a prereq.

Also, keeping in mind that the latest hiper and the latest DB2 group always come down with any cume order, if the hiper group has it listed as a prereq I can see how you might think it's on the cume.

The question is then: What is REALLY required to run 7.1 on Power 8?
- MF99008 and it's coreq's and prereqs
- The full TR8?

I just found that while the current cumulative PTF (1398) includes TR8
(marker PTF MF99008). However the TR group PTF (SF99707) still shows as
level 7. It looks like the planned availability is 6/6/14 for SF99707
Level 8, although TR8 will still be installed with Cumulative 1398...

So, if Power 8 and it's ability to run 7.1TR8 is GA Friday, does that
mean
7.1TR8 will be GA Friday or earlier?

As usual MF99008 is 'just a PTF' so you will want the entire TR group.
While it is very likely that the needed hardware support is in MF99008
there may very well be subsequent fixes you'll want that come in the
group itself.

Is just MF99008 (which is currently out there) all that is needed?
Or will level 8 of SF99707 also be needed?
