Oh, I thought the CUM would include (supersede) Groups, but it sounds like
that's not the case. Here's what I see in FixCentral:
http://www.screencast.com/t/UFziT6DEJ At closer inspection I would guess
the CUM is for the OS and the Groups are for things on top of OS?
The cumulative includes all PTFs, whatever the domain they apply to and
whatever the licensed program they belong to, which were downloaded
enough during a given time windows. I do not remember what is the exact
trigger and what is the time window. But for instance, a PTF will be
included into the cumulative if it is downloaded 100 times during the
A group includes all PTFs related to a specific domain. This domain
covers also several licensed programs. If you look at FixCentral or the
PSP (Preventive Support Planning), you will find all the groups. Two of
them are critical enough so that they are the companion of the
cumulative. These are DB2 and Hiper groups. When you order a cumulative,
DB2 and Hiper groups are also included.
There is also a specific group which contains all the groups. If you
download the cumulative and this specific group, you will have all the
PTFs which can be considered as preventive.
As Rob and others already wrote, not all PTFs are included into this
cumulative and groups. Recommended PTFs site is a good example. It
covers specific domains, and it appears that somme of those PTFs are
included into a cumulative, some of them not.
