APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The IBM Preventative Service Planning (PSP) team has relocated
the XML feeds that provide IBM i PTF Group details.  Due to that
transition, the popular IBM i Services:
SYSTOOLS.GROUP_PTF_CURRENCY and SYSTOOLS.GROUP_PTF_DETAILS have
been rebuilt to use the new XML feed.

This PTF delivers the necessary change to the
SYSTOOLS.GROUP_PTF_CURRENCY and SYSTOOLS.GROUP_PTF_DETAILS
views.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE65838 :
-----------------------------
The new sources of PSP provided IBM i PTF Group levels and
detail are:
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas4PSPbyNum&aid=1
and
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas4SF99725&aid=1,
where SF99725 is an example of how to extract the details for a
specific PTF Group.

Note: www.ibm.com is a world wide cluster. There is not a single
IP address for the cluster and the IP address will be different
for regions of the world. Any customer who took special steps to
configure TCP/IP ability to access to the XML feed
(129.42.160.32), should:
1) ping www.ibm.com - to determine the IP address servicing your
geography
2) Configure TCP/IP access to the IP address returned in step 1.
3) Apply this PTF.

The previous XML feed is scheduled to be taken offline on
October 21, 2016.
