I was recently taken to task on this list for not using proper change
management for PTF's, with the person believing it would help me with my
quest to find test ptf's and ensure that I do not permanently apply them.

What would the change management for that be?

We've used multiple change management systems for programs and that genre
but I'm not sure how they would handle PTF's.

And, when it comes down to the original problem, would they help me track
test ptf's?

I'm thinking of just adding any test ptf's to a calendar entry that I have
a few days before scheduled downtime.

Oh, and I can 'never' use APYPTF LICPGM(*ALL) on any lpar running Domino
(8 out of 10). Because if I have
Product ID . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 5733L85
PTF
ID Status
L603893 Temporarily applied
FP68531 Permanently applied
where FP68531 is fix pack 1 for Domino 8.5.3 enabled for 6.1 and above, I
have to remove hotfix L603893 before applying fix pack 2. Domino fix
packs do not superceed hot fixes. Documented by IBM in steps to apply
Domino fix packs.
