Carsten’s Corner: PTFs and New Command Enable Display of IOA Cache Battery Status

It may have escaped your attention, but some time ago IBM released three PTFs for IBM i OS releases 5.4, 6.1, and 7.1, respectively, providing a convenient method of gathering battery cache information for service purposes.
