I agree with Rob. Rather than messing around with the old PTF, it's been
superseded by a (presumably) corrective one, so apply them all. That's what
IBM intended when the superseded PTF was released.
It is very likely that the offending PTF fixed more than one APAR, but only
a small function was incorrect, so you'll need both of them anyway. The
follow on PTF only fixes what it needs to, not the entire function of the
I have not looked but I'll bet an adult beverage that the old PTF is a
pre-req to the new one.

I stumbled upon the fact that it's back due to the fact there is a
superseding PTF, 5770TC1-SI55030. Or do I just download the superseding PTF
and set it to apply?
I would think that would be the proper course of action.

I have a defective PTF (5770TC1-SI54738) set to apply at the next IPL. How
do I stop it? I've tried both RMVPTF and DLTPTF. Both give me errors.
I was one of those involved in discovering it's defective, deleted it at
that time, and now, somehow, it got downloaded again. Part of some group,
maybe? Anyway, I stumbled upon the fact that it's back due to the fact
there is a superseding PTF, 5770TC1-SI55030. Or do I just download the
superseding PTF and set it to apply?
