Here's what I would do.

SNDPTFORD PTFID((SF99731)) DELIVERY(*LINKONLY) DLVRYFMT(*SAVF) ORDER(*REQUIRED) REORDER(*NO) CHKPTF(*YES) IMGOPT(*DOWNLOAD) - All PTF Groups except Cumulative PTF Package & MQ - level 12
SNDPTFORD PTFID((SF99730)) - Latest CUME

This should give you everything you need.

If latest TR is not there - SNDPTFORD PTFID ((SF99727))

You can view the cover letters, get a rough count of PTFs to be applied.

Then,
8. Install program temporary fix package
Device - *service
Automatic IPL - N
Other options - Y
Apply type . . 1 1=Set all PTFs delayed

Next IPL - (there will be 2 or 3) will apply all

All -

After working since 1989 as a consultant I recently changed jobs, and one of my new duties is system administration.

My new employer operates very lean but not chintzy - we have current software support contracts for everything, including any non-IBM software. I'll eventually replace my boss who is the current wears-all-the-hats person (IBM i admin, JDE admin and all necessary program development / bug fixes).

Hopefully I'll be able to persuade them to buy me a copy of RDI !

It has been a long time since I worked with PTF's.

One concern is that no PTF's have been applied on this system since they went thru a system upgrade in 2019, so I need to determine what is needed and get the PTF's and TR's installed.

Thanks for any guidance, I'm currently looking at the IBM i PTF guide at https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.3?topic=system-displaying-level-fixes
