Abstract

SAP SUPPORT REQUIRED PTF LIST FOR IBM i 7.4

Content

If you are upgrading to IBM i 7.4, load the following PTFs, and then follow the directions in SAP note 2786037, especially noting the prerequisite kernel patch levels.
If you attempt to install more 5770-SS1 options or other licensed program products(LPPs), reload and reapply group and cumulative PTFs.
                                                                     
To order the most recent cumulative or group, request the SFxxxxx number shown in the table. CL command WRKPTFGRP displays the current level and status of cumulative and Group PTFs, been installed on the partition.  CL command DSPPTF displays, by LPP, the individual PTFs installed on this partition. Also, keep in mind, that the HIPER GROUP is much more important than the Cumulative package. HIPER PTFs are High Impact Pervasive PTFs and are updated almost every week!!!

Link to our external PSP (Preventive Service Planning) Page.    
Attention: To further protect IBM i against vulnerabilities, the current PTF groups contain fixes that remove *PUBLIC authority *USE from some operating system commands. This may result in error SQL0552 for SQL statement CREATE TRIGGER, or error SQL0443 when accessing the system views PTF_INFO or GROUP_PTF_INFO. To avoid functional problems, it is advised that you grant *USE authority for user profile R3GROUP to these commands. To do so, sign on as QSECOFR or a user with similar authorities and execute the following commands:
GRTOBJAUT OBJ(QSYS/ADDPFTRG) OBJTYPE(*CMD) USER(R3GROUP) AUT(*USE)
GRTOBJAUT OBJ(QSYS/DSPPTF) OBJTYPE(*CMD) USER(R3GROUP) AUT(*USE)
GRTOBJAUT OBJ(QSYS/WRKPTFGRP) OBJTYPE(*CMD) USER(R3GROUP) AUT(*USE)
