IBM Y2K Support Pages

Here are some IBM Y2K support pages that you probably want to bookmark in your Web browser. The first is http://www.as400service.ibm.com/supporthome.nsf/Document/17742518. This is IBM's overview of Year 2000 PTFs for the AS/400. This is a much less compact document than the one
DLB Associates provided for last week's issue, but this one has the virtue of being official and updated frequently. (We are working with DLB to provide a PTF update guide on a regular basis). This IBM site provides a collection of authorized program analysis report (APAR) listings for all the supported OS/400 releases, which detail all the PTF patches for OS/400 and its related systems programs. It doesn't tell you how to apply PTFs, and it is not concise, but AS/400 customers should probably be looking at it to see what's up.

In addition to this set of pages, IBM will provide a special set of Y2K alerts between December 28 and January 5 at http://www.ibm.com/software/year2000/alert/. These pages will profile problems with IBM equipment and software as they crop up in IBM's worldwide customer base. It will also
track the PTFs to fix these problems and provide other workarounds and advice until PTFs are issued to fix Y2K bugs.
