I order PTFs via FTP and wrote a command that I just plug in the password
they send, the directory & my local credentials for our LPARs and it
downloads the PTFs, loads them into an image catalog, FTPs the PTFs to all
of the other LPARs and loads them into image catalogs and then it's a
simple GO PTF option 8...but that's just me :)


Thanks,

No you use Ops Nav to inventory and sync the PTF between the systems.
