On 1 box, a PTF in a group shows as superseded and on the other box that same PTF in the same group shows as permanently applied.
PTF's were installed about 2 weeks apart using the same instruction set from IBM.
Does anyone know how this could occur?

The second machine had the permanently applied PTF installed before applying the group PTF. The first machine did not.

Permanently applied means the PTF was loaded and applied (either temporarily or permanently) and then a later PTF was installed.

Superseded means the PTF was never installed (or was but was removed) and a later PTF was applied. THe supersede chain that is part of the later PTF causes this effect.
