Little depends what hardware platform and services you use. I had to
upgrade iPrint modules (iprntnw65sp6f) and Media Manager Update (mm65sp6).

I use iprint .. me too. Therefore must I apply iprntnw65sp6f?

But is it better to wait that I have some problems and then apply the
patch OR is better to apply before?

excuse me for my poor English,I'm italian.
thanks for all

Check the following wiki page:

it should contain all the important things you have to know about SP6.

Read the description of the patches. If the patch applies to you, then
apply it to your server.

Just a short summery:

- if you are using iPrint, the latest iPrint patch is kind of mandatory

- console1: the patch is highly recommended if you use consoleone to
create or manage objects

- CIFS: required if you use domain authentication. Without the patch, the
server will have a hard hang

- LIBC, the requester problem is quite fatal. You might decide whether to
patch or work around

- winsock: this is a more delicate patch. Apply it if you get winsock abends

- NMAS patch
If you are using universal password, I would strongly recommend you to
apply this patch. If you don't apply it, the server will abend when
dealing with users that have blank passwords.

- portal
portal.nlm will abend when seeing disks of size zero. On a normal server,
you would never see this. However this can happen in a SAN environment
when the server sees a lun but does not have the right to access the lun.
In that case, the lun may appear to be of size zero.

thank you very much.

Two days ago I have upgraded to NW65SP6 and for now I haven't problem.
But as you suggest me I 'll apply at least the latest iPrint patch and
console1.

thanks, thanks, thanks
