Abstract

General availability of DB2® Content Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 4 and DB2 Document Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 4, and limited availability of DB2 Records Manager V4.1.3 and DB2 Records Manager Enabler V8.3 Fix Pack 4

Content

Both Fix Pack 3A (or z/OS PTF UK18610) and Fix Pack 4 (or z/OS PTF UK20747) for DB2 Content Manager V8.3 are now generally available. DB2 Document Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 4 is also generally available.

Important: The Fix Pack 4 update of Content Manager V8.3 (or z/OS PTF UK20747) should not be applied if you are using these levels of software:
- DB2 Records Manager V4.1.2
- DB2 Content Manager Records Enabler V8.3 Fix Pack 2

- Content Manager Migration Utility Refresh 1 (that is, you must migrate from DB2 Content Manager for Multiplatforms V7 to V8.3 Fix Pack 3A - not directly to Fix Pack 4)

Prerequisites for Fix Pack 4 of DB2 Content Manager V8.3

You must install DB2 Content Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 3A prior to installing Fix Pack 4. Fix Pack 3A provides toleration for a minor Fix Pack 4 schema change that adds columns to some base library server system tables in support of DB2 Records Manager. Fix Pack 3A updates the library server in order to tolerate the new columns in the event that Fix Pack 4 is applied and then removed. That is, you can uninstall Fix Pack 4 back to Fix Pack 3A with minimum disruption.

For migration to Content Manager V8.3 Fix Pack 4 directly from DB2 Content Manager for Multiplatforms V7, the Content Manager Migration Utility Refresh 2 is required.

Requirement for users of Records Manager
Only Fix Pack 3A (or z/OS PTF UK18610) or previous fix packs of DB2 Content Manager Version 8.3 is supported for use with the following levels. This update (Fix Pack 4 or z/OS PTF UK20747) should not be applied if you are using these levels of software:
- DB2 Records Manager V4.1.2
- DB2 Content Manager Records Enabler V8.3 Fix Pack 2

Fix Pack 4 (or z/OS PTF UK20747) of DB2 Content Manager Version 8.3 is supported for use with only the following minimum software levels:

  • DB2 Records Manager V4.1.3
  • DB2 Content Manager Records Enabler V8.3 Fix Pack 4

At this time, DB2 Records Manager V4.1.3 and the Fix Pack 4 update for the Records Enabler portion of DB2 Content Manager V8.3 are being offered on a limited availability basis. (Note: Fix Pack 2 is the current service level for Records Enabler. There is no Fix Pack 3 or 3A).

If you require access to the records management software and want to participate in the limited availability program, please contact your IBM representative, or send an e-mail to tsmail@us.ibm.com, or, if you are in the United States, you can call 1-800-274-8184, selecting option 3 for Customer Service. All requests will be responded to within 24 hours.
