I have done PTF groups more than 100 times and I apply all PTF groups
together every time in a row.
ONE RULE: Perm apply ALL PTFs first, then IPL to complete that.
apply all the new groups temp.
ONE EXCEPTION: If you are far behind in T/Rs, such as 'more than
that case we will Slip the LIC with latest ReSpin first and then run all

In previous times, I would always use the following groupings when
installing groups of PTFs:
Cume/Hiper/DB2 as one Go PTF Option 8 set
Then other IBM groups all together as a separate Go PTF Option 8 set
Then any sets of individual straggler PTFs for apps and 3rd party
as a final Go PTF Option 8 set(cume/hipers/db2
Is there anything wrong in this day and age with applying ALL the IBM
provided PTF groups together in one Go PTF Option 8 set?
and other groups at once, then a separate grouping for any stragglers as
