Yes - the problem is when you IPL to the 'A' you're only back to where you were as far as LIC PTF's (57xx-999) are concerned. All your Operating System PTF's (57xx-SS1) and others that are temporarily applied are still active when you IPL on the A side. Of course it IS easier to identify which PTF's were part of the cum package if you apply all previous PTF's permanently before applying the new package (although I seldom bother with that, you can DSPPTF to an outfile and query the date applied to find the same information), as they will be the only ones Temporarily Applied, so it would be easier to remove them all (individually) if you had to ! :-) Neil Palmer AS/400~~~~~ NxTrend Technology - Canada ____________ ___ ~ Thornhill, Ontario, Canada |OOOOOOOOOO| ________ o|__||= Phone: (905) 731-9000 x238 |__________|_|______|_|______) Cell.: (416) 565-1682 x238 oo oo oo oo OOOo=o\ Fax: (905) 731-9202 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ mailto:NPalmer@NxTrend.com AS/400 The Ultimate Business Server http://www.NxTrend.com > -----Original Message----- > From: Sclind2@aol.com [SMTP:Sclind2@aol.com] > Sent: Wednesday, July 08, 1998 10:24 AM > To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com > Subject: Re: Managing PTF's...Strategy? > > In a message dated 98-07-08 10:08:57 EDT, you write: > > << Usually I run on side B and only permanently apply PTF just before > putting > up a new Cum CD.
