Monthly for a changing system or quarterly for a stable system - Order
current cumulative PTF packages (SF99vrm) or PTF Group packages (SF99nnn)
and apply

Notes
1. In a stable environment, think about installing the most recent
cumulative PTF package twice a year.
2. Consider installing the most recent cumulative PTF package before
making major changes to your system (hardware or software).

Hello all,

Our internal auditors are on my back. They want me to install patches (PTF
...) on the system i with the same frequency as we do on our Windows farm.
I told them that these are 2 different animals and that I am not
compromising the system by not installing every cum package as soon as they
come out.
But, since I am not a 200$/hours consultant, I have little credibility
regarding this.

I am looking for official or semi official (best practice) guideline for
patch management frequency.

Unfortunately, opinion given on this list wont cut it. I am looking for
web pages, PDF document or something the like.

I did some search on IBM site and found nothing.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
