No, you should either use DELAY(*YES) or my preference is DELAY(*IMMDLY). I don't use DELAY(*NO) because then some PTFs might not be able to be put on right now. With *IMMDLY, you get the best of both worlds. Those than can be done now are applied perm, and then those that can't are done at IPL, but you have redcued your IPL window by getting the ones you can on now.

Thanks for the info, Rob.

We have no Domino and really, just basic LPPs. We don't even have BRMS. No test PTFs at all.

So, will command


be sufficient? Will it impact performance (this is our main production LPAR). Any idea how long it will take?
