RE: PTF apply philosophies



fixed

First, I'd like to thank everyone for all the input for this post I started a while back.
Second, it appears most are using fix central, download to image catalogs. I've been using SNDPTFORD to SAVF. I find it simpler, less steps, can automate. Any big advantage of fix central over SNDPTFORD.
Third, I've been reading many posts, including the reference to http://www.itjungle.com/fhg/fhg040412-story03.html
I've been grouping everything, (CUM, TR, GROUPS, MISC) together, setting all to apply at next IPL, have never had any issues.
Are there any valid reasons not to do this? Has anyone experienced PTF apply issues?

Paul

Easy fix

APYPTF LICPGM(5770999) DELAYED(*IMMDLY) APYPTF LICPGM(5770SS1) DELYAED(*IMMDLY)

That will get everything applied and set the IPL attribute. Even if it's almost ready now.

IPL

Should be good.

My system is at HIPER 113, but I doubt that's an issue.

Now I'm a bit concerned.

HIPER group 111 is installed.
TR group 7 is installed.
TR group 8 is not installed.

MF99008 is set to apply at next IPL. And that's the only PTF set to apply at next IPL.

Am I current enough on the HIPER group for TR 8?

There are several pages (5+) of 5770-999 and 1 page of 5770-SS1 waiting in the wings until after MF99008 is applied.

I did a bunch of PTF's for clients the end of June. I ordered TR8
along with the groups and HIPERs. I did the cume package first, and
then did everything else. TR8 went on with no problem.

After all the discussion here, I was a bit concerned, so I'm glad I
waited for a couple extra HIPER packages to be released.

Thanks Paul!

My plan is to have my cumes/groups I applied last night run until
around month end, and then I will apply them permanently. I'll check
for the existence of the *savf's after that is done.

Then just after month end we do a full restricted state system save,
and after that is done I'm going to apply TR8.
