What are PTFs? Why do I need them? How do I get them? Which ones do I need? Does my technology really need a refresh? In this session we will describe PTFs, Cumulative PTFs, and other PTF Groups. We'll discuss how to find out what you have, how to get them, and how to put them in place. We'll help you determine what PTF strategy is the one for you and your system.

Learning Objectives:

1. What PTFs, and PTF Groups are and why you need them.
2. How to get PTFs and load them onto IBM i.
3. The use of Virtual Image Catalogs and Virtual DVD drives to save time and problems in the PTF process.
4. How to determine which PTFs you need for your system.
