RE: Having trouble with PTFs



fixed

This is an E4B which started out with v7r1. And we DID do the Allocate
Additional Space during the install. I think there was a PTF that was
needed to do a similar process before this cume was applied, and that PTF
was superseded. The superseded PTF was also checked. Also, the superseded
PTF was included in the cume, I think. Confusing.

Pure speculation on my part at this point but: Was this machine upgraded
from earlier releases? If so was the step "Allocate Additional Space for
LIC" actually performed from the Prepare for
Install menu? It does require some additional downtime on the next
IPL, and it's not always needed, so many times it's overlooked.

I also wonder if it might work in this instance. Run it for V7R1M0?

The save file approach vs. the image catalog should not make a difference in
the process. It's merely a different way to approach the PTF installation.

I had read here that several folks had applied the cume and TR5
without trouble, but maybe there's a difference between doing it from
an optical image, rather than save files downloaded from the Fix
Central site (which is what I did).

I have seen this too. MF99005 is a pre-requisite and co-requisite to
quite a few PTFs. It can be loaded individually as Rob points out,
and most definitely needs an IPL.

I had my own trouble with PTF's this last week. On several lpars
I had ran APYPTF LICPGM(5770999) APY(*PERM) DELAYED(*YES) and then
loaded and set MF99005, TR5, cume and a bunch of groups to apply at
the next IPL. Failed. Had to do this in two steps APYPTF
LICPGM(5770999) APY(*PERM) DELAYED(*YES) and then loaded and set
MF99005 IPL do the rest IPL again.

Many were pretty insistent that MF99005 be applied before continuing.
