RE: PTF apply philosophies



fixed

I forgot to add, next V7R1 CUM is due out on 6/20.
So do you combine TR8 and next CUM all in one large PTF apply.
Shoot for IPL near end of June.
Time for some serious PTF planning.

Since I originally started this thread, I now have a tape FC issue which needs an IPL for MF58085, SS by MF99008.
Yes, our wonderful MF99008 keeps popping up.
So now the 6/16 IPL for PTF apply, which was to be postponed, now is critical.
Do I try and include TR8 with this?
I probably can get TR8 applied today on R&D, run for 2 weeks.

Well, you have to understand, MF99008 was the real 'peach'. That already caused us some issues. Those have been resolved. So, that's already been out for quite some time.
In all seriousness, I am downloading the cume and all latest groups, including TR8, to apply to all remaining 7.1 lpars. Production and all. I was going to apply them all the weekend of June 13. Boss wants a slight delay. Only until the P8's get here and do it all at once.
Yee Haw!

Rob,

So you wouldn't run TR8 on R&D for 2 or 3 months, then apply to production?

Paul.

V7R1 TR8 released today.
How long would you wait till applying to a production LPAR.
Will take an IPL, I'm sure.

They stay there. Hence the recommendation to apply permanently.
You've never taken over maintenance on a machine that's been under someone

else's care only to find PTF save files from 2.1 and more? I'm surprised.
