RE: PTFs, again



fixed

When you saw MF57512 off to the right that was under the column heading
'superceeded by'. You need to specify the columns to search in, using the
left area instead.
If you ordered the CSV you could import that into Excel, import it into
DB2, compare it against an output of DSPPTF and order the exceptions.
Some PTFs are rather unique. Like, let's say I opened a ticket with an
extremely unheard of combination of hardware and various LPPs. IBM admits
they need to fix it. But if no one else has that same problem, and it's
not a huge security breach, then it may never see a cume, group or be in
the recommended list. On the off chance that it could actually cause an
issue for someone using another unique combination of hardware and LPPs.
Sort of like the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mantra.
