I have been playing with the SNPTFORD using the image catalog after following this thread.
After placing the order, you can use WRKPTFORD and it will show you if it is still scheduled or downloaded.

There's no history on this email and I'm not inclined to look it up so I'll ask, how did you run the SNDPTFORD? image catalog? If image catalog *ORDER or *DOWNLOAD?

I believe that if you SNDPTFORD with the image catalog option some message will appear that will say check some message to see if it's done being downloaded.
If someone wants to try that and add a comment to the following to have that documented that would be sweet.

From an old thread, I think you need to have each option of 5733OPS
installed, or the 5733OPS PTFs do not come down.

Yep, I made sure to do that.

Because if IBM add's a new group for 5733OPS and you've not ordered it
yet
it will not show up on GROUP_PTF_CURRENCY? That only compares "groups you
already have" with what the current level of that group is at IBM.

I believe you are correct because when I ran GROUP_PTF_CURRENCY it didn't
show 5733OPS PTFs even though I know there was one for the latest IBM i
Chroot** addition. I am sorting through the other DB2 Services** to see
if
one of them will show me PTFs for a given licensed program.

After I run SNDPTFORD, how do I know when the PTFs are ready to be
installed? The last time I just waited over my lunch and figured they
would be downloaded and then ran GO PTF opt 8. Should I instead be using
DSPPTF SELECT(*ONORDER) and if there aren't entries then I know the order
is complete? And then I am guessing I can run DSPPTF SELECT(*NOTAPY) to
learn which ones aren't yet applied?
