If your on V7 then the best way is to have exactly one copy of the LPP/PTF/Groups on one LPAR. Then use the NFS capabilities built into the TRs to push the fixes across the backplane VLAN. Speeds up PTF/Group application by quite a bit on a smaller system (meaning < 10 drives). This requires a small amount of set up but once it's done it really works well. Now all we have to do is get them to extend the capability to Virtual Tape as well as optical.

Otherwise you can just use FTP to binary push them into new image catalog directories. There are times I'll use SAVRSTOBJ and SAVRST as well depending on the situation and if Enterprise Extenders is configured.
