Hotfix applied on DB2

Hotfix applied on DB2
Is anyone familiar with the term "hotfix" in relation to AIX DB2 and how to
determine if it has been applied to DB2?

It seems to me this may simply mean application of PTFs (or patches) to fix
a production problem. (?)

Technically, for AIX, it's termed a special build. Normally when a hotfix is
applied, as part of the install, there's a program put in SQLLIB call hotfix
that one can execute to see the hotfixs applied. hotfix -l I think shows the
fixes.

DB2level will also do. See below. We run with a special build 12921 and this is not a PTF

DB21085I Instance "DRDA" uses "32" bits and DB2 code release "SQL08020" with
level identifier "03010106".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v8.1.7.767", "special_12921", "WR21342_12921",
and FixPak "7".
Product is installed at "C:\SQLLIB".

C:\SQLLIB>hotfix -l
List of previous fixes:
HotFix12921
