The reference to DLTPTF as having possible added value [to ensure no residual effects], was noted to be performed only *after* the defective PTF had been permanently removed. Alluded in my original reply was the need to first perform [after the APYPTF IPLAPY(*NO) request had been performed as the recovery\answer for the "Subject" scenario]:

RMVPTF PTF(SI54738) LICPGM(5770TC1) RMV(*PERM) DELAYED(*NO)

Since the prior corrective action to change the APYPTF action from delayed to no-apply, that PTF should be effectively the same as if just loaded; i.e. neither applied nor scheduled for apply at IPL, thus a status of merely /loaded/. In that state, I am somewhat confident the remove with DELAYED(*NO) should be possible; though any existing requisites for that PTF could complicate the removal.

If a request to DSPPTF 5770TC1 SI54738 fails with a "PTF not found" condition, then [irrespective the success or failure of the DLTPTF request] the supersede should be capable of being ordered, loaded, and [scheduled to be] applied without any issues; i.e. no potentially negative effects per remnants of either the defective PTF or a PTF save file with that defective PTF. If instead that DSPPTF request shows a PTF, then whatever steps are necessary to effect the Remove PTF must be performed.

Regards, Chuck

Hey, the APYPTF worked! It now has IPL Action of None. Thanks

I can't seem to delete it entirely, though. I get this:
