What do you need to know before installing a Fix Pack
Administrators need to take into account several things when deciding to install a Fix Pack:
- See what fixes are included in each Fix Pack:
- Access previously applied hotfixes
1. Determine whether any hotfixes are currently installed on your system for 6.5.6
- Use the i5/OS CL command: DSPPTF LICPGM(5733L65) RLS(V6R5M6)
- Compare the list of SPRs addressed by the Fix Pack against the SPRs addressed by your hotfixes. In many cases, the Fix Pack will provide the same solutions as the hotfixes. If you have hotfixes that are not in 6.5.6 FP3, the Domino Administrator must assess the relative importance of applied hotfixes versus applying a new Fix Pack. Hotfixes for 6.5.6, 6.5.6 FP1 or 6.5.6 FP2 may not be applied to 6.5.6 FP3.
- In cases where a previous hotfix is not included in a Fix Pack, you need to contact Lotus Support prior to installing 6.5.6 FP3 to request a new hotfix that can be applied on 6.5.6 FP3.
- When it is time to install 6.5.6 FP3, proceed with "Install 6.5.6 Fix Pack 3".
