(4.6) Corrective Service Diskettes

What are CSDs, how do I tell which I have, and where do I get them?

CSDs are Corrective Service Diskettes, or bug fixes (Service Paks), periodically issued by IBM. The OS/2 Warp CSD level number may be obtained using the command SYSLEVEL from an OS/2 Warp command line prompt. CSDs are cumulative, i.e. only the most recent CSD is required to bring a system up from any previous CSD level. However, CSDs only apply within a major version number. For example, an upgrade, not a CSD, would bring OS/2 Version 2.1 up to Version 3. Note also that each national language (e.g. French, U.K. English) uses a distinct CSD.

CSDs may be ordered by phoning 800-494-3044. Customers with IBM customer numbers (usually large sites) should order through IBMLink. Outside the United States, ask an authorized IBM dealer or representative for the CSD. CSDs may also be downloaded from the IBM PC Co. BBS (modem 919-517-0001), CompuServe (GO IBMOS2), or from (3.2) Shareware and Freeware Sources. And CSDs may be ordered through IBM's OS/2 Warp BBS.

The latest, current OS/2 Warp CSD level will be listed in this List and in the PS Assistant files. At present there is no Service Pak for OS/2 Warp. The latest Service Pak for OS/2 Version 2.1 and OS/2 for Windows is Level 06300.
