With every OS upgrade, some products will be "skipped shipped" meaning the product was not changed and an earlier version is current.
You can easily see these from the chart " Licensed program releases and sizes" status column.

There's a section in the knowledge center which covers this. But basically not all LPPs are at the same level. That hasn't happened since MANY releases ago. When I do a DSPSFWRSC will see a wide variety
5770SS1 47 5119 *CODE QADVSEC V7R2M0
5722IP1 *BASE 5050 *CODE QIPS V5R3M0
5733LD9 *BASE 5050 *CODE QNOTES V9R0M1
5733OPS *BASE 5050 *CODE QOPS V1R1M0

and so on. However I also see:
5733SC1 *BASE 5050 *CODE QUTL V7R2M0
5733SC1 *BASE 2924 *LNG QUTL V7R2M0
5733SC1 1 5050 *CODE QUTL V7R2M0

5733SC1 is on B_GROUP_04
Or you can download it from ESS.

If you do
10. Display installed licensed programs
What does it show SC1? *COMPATIBLE, *INSTALLED or the dreaded *BACKLEVEL?
I'm suspecting *BACKLEVEL.
You have issues.

I was going to configure the sshd_config file on my v7.2 machine only to
find it wasn't in the location I was expecting...


Expected location: /QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/SC1/OpenSSH/etc/sshd_config

So that led me to believe I needed to update 5733SC1. I found the
following developerWorks URL conveying available PTFs:

I then ran DSPPTF LICPGM(5733SC1), expecting it would let me know which
PTFs have been applied. I was surprised to see "V7R1M0" (see below) since
I am on V7R2M0.

Display PTF Status
System: xxxxxx
Product ID . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 5733SC1
IPL source . . . . . . . . . . . . . : ##MACH#B
Release of base option . . . . . . . : V7R1M0

Type options, press Enter.
5=Display PTF details 6=Print cover letter 8=Display cover letter
10=Display PTF apply information

Opt ID Status Action
SI53666 Temporarily applied None
SI53024 Superseded None
SI52774 Temporarily applied None
SI52286 Superseded None
SI51208 Superseded None
SI49867 Superseded None
SI47871 Temporarily applied None

My questions:
1 - Why does it display V7R1M0 when I am actually on V7R2M0?

2 - I want to SNDORDPTF for the PTFs listed on aforementioned
developerWorks URL, should I order for V7R1 or V7R2?

3 - Is there a way to say "get me all PTFs for 5733SC1" (via SNDORDPTF or
other) so I don't have to order them individually? I went into FixCentral
and did the "Text" search for "5733SC1" but it came back with zero
