make sense... I never thought of that angle (ending up with numerous
identical chaff of pre/coreqs buried in with the separate download
packages)

I agree with Larry. Ordering them separately just forces a bunch of extra
download space and time to get coreq's and prereqs. You end up repeating
the download.

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.
THEN
apply all the new groups temp.

ONE EXCEPTION: If you are far behind in T/Rs, such as 'more than
4'. In
that case we will Slip the LIC with latest ReSpin first and then run all
the groups.

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
concerns
as a final Go PTF Option 8 set





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?
(cume/hipers/db2
and other groups at once, then a separate grouping for any stragglers
as
described above)
