Abstract

TSSC - IMC - TS3000 Code Update Recommendation 7 November 2022
  • Added v9.3.11 as latest level, replacing prior v9.3.10

Description

This generalized recommendation is made available to assist clients in implementing a code update strategy. It is a full field perspective, and as such, a customized recommendation, which takes into account specifics such as business upgrade windows, length of time since last update, decommission plans, etc. may require assistance from local support teams. In general, recommendations assume planning updates annually. The word "must" in the notes below refers to bundles resolving specific problems for a targeted subset of TSSC - IMC - TS3000 and communicated via My Notifications to clients, or ECA (Engineering Change/Field Actions) Information Alerts to IBM Service colleagues.
