Usually I run on side B and only permanently apply PTF just before putting
up a new Cum CD. Or a new release. I see no problems running on the B side.

Subject: Managing PTF's...Strategy?


You Guru's

I'd like to start a discussion dealing with the management of PTF's and
Client Access upgrades.

My own thoughts on this are to keep current and perm apply after a week
or so if all is well.

IPLSRC A, B....?

I've not been involved in operations that much as I've mainly been
application programming for
the last 10 years.

Being in a two person shop now where the manager appears to know less
than I do about *managing* the 400 I'd like some feedback on some *best
practices* approaches...

Is it normal to run off IPLSRC B everyday ?

Is it not more effecient to perm apply your ptf's ?

How many have been burned by a perm applied ptf that was bad ?
What was the solution ?

How about tape backup management, isn't it a bit risky to take backup
tapes home with you
escpecially when your not keeping them in a safe ?

Everyplace else i've worked has had there tapes picked up by a service
company ( not sure what exactly they do with them ) : )

I'd like to see the two of us run an organized shop with good practices
in place but right now I think we have much room for improvement.

I can't make these decisions but I can make suggestions. Perhaps after
hearing about what others
are doing I'll have even better suggestions to make.

Oh where Oh where will I find a well managed IS dept...
