With a technology refresh you are best off to manually watch the system,
since there might be another one coming, depending completely on the PTF
mix on your system.

To avoid some of that in the future, you need to apply the precursor PTFs
for the TR, before trying to apply everything else.

We almost always do it manually because we watch the group/cumulative
application anyway.

I recently did a SNDPTFORD for SF99722 followed by GO PTF option 8. I set
the PTFs to install *IMMDLY and to not IPL.

Typically I schedule an unattended IPL over the weekend to apply any PTFs
that are delayed.

However, I received this message (likely because of the technology refresh:
"A technology refresh PTF and/or special handling PTF requires an IPL to
complete PTF install processing. A technology refresh PTF must be
permanently applied before a PTF with a technology refresh requisite
(*TRREQ) can be loaded....
Perform a normal mode IPL to complete the PTF install. During the next
unattended IPL, the remaining PTFs will be installed from the following
device:
*SERVICE
Press F10 to confirm your choice to end all jobs on the system immediately
and automatically IPL the system. Press F12 to cancel the installation."

So my question is this... Do I need to run option 8 again when I am able
to immediately IPL the system? Or, can I schedule several unattended IPLs?
