For the latest set of PTFs, the corresponding data is:

DSPMQMVER:

MDV 7.1.0.2 is a Fix Pack, which comprises thirteen PTFs
- ten for the *BASE install option (library QMQM) (5724H72)
- one for install option 1 (library QMQMSAMP) (5724H72)
- two for the WebSphere MQ Java™/JMS for i5/OS product (5724L26)


PTF SI47022 has been designated as the 'marker' PTF for MDV 7.1.0.2.
Ordering a Group PTF will deliver a complete set of (thirteen) PTFs.
Alternatively, ordering SI47022 will deliver all eleven PTFs for product 5724H7206 and the two PTFs for
product 5724L2620 (WebSphere MQ Java/JMS), if installed.

The complete set of Group PTFs comprises:
* SF99351 - IBM i V6R1 - WebSphere MQ for i5/OS 7.1
* SF99359 - IBM i V7R1 - WebSphere MQ for i5/OS 7.1

For option *BASE - you must apply ALL ten PTFs.
For option 1 - SI47027 (optional) will re-ship library QMQMSAMP
and directory /QIBM/ProdData/mqm/samp

If the MQ Server & MQ Java/JMS products are both installed
For WebSphere MQ Java - SI47033 MUST be applied as well as all ten *BASE PTF's
For WebSphere MQ Java option 1 - SI47034 (optional) reships directory
/QIBM/ProdData/mqm/java/samples

.....................................................................

BEFORE UPDATING your WebSphere MQ service level, you -> MUST <- quiesce all Queue Manager activity. A suggested procedure is included in the PTF Special Instructions. With this Fix Pack it is especially important to clear up shared memory.

The latest set of PTFs incorporate a PTF exit program, which will
log error on apply PTF or remove PTF operation if subsystem QMQM is still
active or one or more Queue Manager jobs are still running.
Please ensure you have read and understood section 1.6 below
"Error messages logged by APYPTF or RMVPTF"

.....................................................................

BEFORE APPLYING the latest set of PTFs, you -> MUST <- remove any TESTFIXES which have been applied on top of the previous CSD.

.....................................................................

Users upgrading or installing WebSphere MQ, on a system with a PRIMARY LANGUAGE for which there is no MQSeries National Language Version ... PLEASE READ section "Installing translated versions" in Chapter 1 of the Quick Beginnings for i5/OS: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmqv7/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.mq.amqwac.doc/iq10120_.htm.
