This is not a RUNNING problem it is an INSTALLING problem.

If you are running you did not encounter the installing issue.

You are absolutely welcome to install Group 17 but to my knowledge it adds no function it merely enables installation in situations where Group 16 failed to install.

We somehow dodged the bullet here. We're on Level 17 (installed yesterday), but >Level 16 shows as having been installed as well. Does anyone know what would cause >some servers to not have a problem, and others to experience this?

More details on the issue can be found at>for-ibm-i-7-3-hits-a-bad-patch/, but it doesn't get into the details of why some >systems can run Level 16 without a problem.

We, too, have either dodged a bullet or we're living on borrowed time. Installed lvl 16 last Friday morning (with CUME & Groups) and the system (8202-E4D) is humming along.

I'm scheduling an out-of-cycle apply for lvl 17 this weekend, hopefully allowing me to sleep better.
