This is interesting.

I have:

MF56173 applied permanently.
MF99005 applied permanently.
SF99707 level 4 installed.
SF99707 level 5 apply at next IPL.

Single LPAR, 1 processor.

Wonder what's going to happen when I IPL . . .

It mentions nothing about MF56173

It does say this:
Special Instructions

Please ensure that you have a SAVSYS before applying this PTF.

Permanently apply any temporarily applied LIC PTFs on your partition
before applying this PTF.

This PTF must be permanently applied.

BUT, as it has been pointed out to me, MF99005 is not TR5; SF99707 level
5
is. And if you look at the cover letter for SF99707 you'll see that
MF56173 is included with SF99707.

So, you need MF56173 applied before you apply MF56173?

Of course, MF56173 is a delayed PTF, designed to stop a hang during an
IPL. Of course, what's to stop the hang during the IPL applying MF56173?
Well, don't have any "previous failed system configuration change" is a
big start.

Probably it's a, "if you sneak by the hang on this IPL, then this PTF
will
prevent this type of hang on any future IPLs".

We had an issue in installing TR5 as it hung during the IPL to apply the
PTF's. We call IBM and found out that we needed MF56173 to be applied
following the special instructions. Make sure you review MF56173
information before applying TR5.
