Fix group levels

Multiple levels are allowed for each PTF group on the system. The number of levels kept for each PTF group is controlled by the PTF group levels service attribute. Use the Display Service Attributes (DSPSRVA) command to display the current PTF group levels value. The default for the PTF group levels service attribute is 2, which indicates that the system keeps the previous level of a group when a new PTF group is downloaded or installed. Specify the PTF group levels (PTFGRPLVL) parameter on the Change Service Attributes (CHGSRVA) command to set the maximum number of levels of a PTF group to keep on the system. When the number of levels of the PTF group on the system exceeds this value, the lowest levels of the PTF group are deleted, leaving only the specified number of levels of the PTF group on the system.

Cool. I'd like to know where that setting is.

There is a config setting, don't remember exactly where, you specify the
number of levels you want to see.
I'm currently set at 4.
System auto purges the levels, no matter what the status is.

And remember:

WRKPTFGRP PTFGRPLVL(*INSTALLED)

Will show only the installed version.

When you use option 4 to delete it doesn't pick a version. It deletes
the whole group.

For example I can try a 4 on either one of the following, but I'll
lose both.
Opt PTF Group Level Status
4 SF99776 1 Installed
SF99776 2 Installed
