Yep, updating WAS is a two step process (if doing it from PTFs)
1) restore PTF
2) run the update script in QSH. DO NOT forget to use the umask command as
described.
SSH will work too. The update can take quite some time, and the documents
that come with it are required reading. Failure to read them may set
multiple landmines that you may freely step on..... Bad Karma....

You do know that simply putting on PTF's for WAS really isn't effective
anymore, right?
You have to read their cover letters and often have to perform upgrade
steps. Kind of like "run this qshell script" sort of thing.
Honestly this is something I've been letting slip by and I really need to
get these WAS items upgraded.
