I don't believe so, though I can't say for sure because it might have been
that the download was fast. But in this case I can't imagine a Technology
Refresh would be small. That leads me to believe it released my console.

you if it is still scheduled or downloaded.

I do see two entries in WRKPTFORD. At this point I don't know if they are
from SNDPTFORD or from my FixCentral efforts. Regardless, do you know if
they go away once associated PTFs are installed/applied?

how did you run the SNDPTFORD? image catalog? If image catalog *ORDER
or
*DOWNLOAD?

​Here's the SNDPTFORD command I ran for v7.2 TR3.

SNDPTFORD PTFID((SF99717))
RMTCPNAME(*IBMSRV)
RMTNETID(*NETATR)
DELIVERY(*LINKONLY)
DLVRYFMT(*SAVF)
ORDER(*REQUIRED)
IMGOPT(*DOWNLOAD)
IMGDIR(*DFT)


Unlike GROUP_PTF_CURRENCY this one will not check IBM for updates.

That's unfortunate. I will submit a requirement to IBM to add something
like this.​

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.


** http://bit.ly/litmis-ibmichroot
**http://bit.ly/db2-for-i-services

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?
