Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, you should not have to put the system in a Restricted State to Install a New Licensed Program Product.

That being said, you may want to be conscious of a performance impact as you are doing the install. Pick a time when the system is typically quiet.

Hope this helps,

    Remember to load all required PTF's for the new LICPGM.

    As is stated above "Remember to load all required PTF’s for the new LICPGM". To do this you need to load your last Cumulative PTF package and any groups. When you do this it will seek out the PTFs needed for that new License Program Product and any other PTFs it finds missing. Be aware that it may need an IPL to finish this so you can take option 8 to load a package and make sure you specify No on the IPL. This will load the PTFs and mark them to apply on the next scheduled IPL. So the answer is no it does not require you to be in restricted state but it does not mean that the programs will be 100% if it still needs PTFs to fix some code. Lovemyi

    To do this you need to load your last Cumulative PTF package and any groups. And be aware that this is only required for a "LIC PGM" from IBM. If it comes from a different vendor, there should be ways of retrieving the PTFs that the vendor requires or recommends. Tom

    Lovemyi, I don't understand why you would need to load the latest Cum Package or Group PTF's. I agree that you may need to load any PTF's related to the new Licensed Program Product, but disagree on the Cum and Group PTF's. If I were doing the latest CUM and all of the Group PTF's, I would put the system in a Restricted State. Just my opinion, Bill Poulin

    I don’t understand why you would need to load the latest Cum Package or Group PTF’s. Technically, you probably shouldn't need to; but it might be more efficient. It can depend on how you handle PTFs and on your remote bandwidth among other possibilities. When you request a PTF, say for a newly installed LPP, the IBM process will look over all PTFs on your system to ensure pre- and co-reqs are available. If they're not, they should be added to the download list. If you apply cume/groups beforehand, though, the only ones that will actually be applied are those that are possibly relevant to the new LPP. It doesn't actually do anything with the many many others that are already applied or that relate to LPPs (or features) that you don't have. Then when you do request specific PTFs for the LPP (if they weren't already part of the cume/groups), the package that gets downloaded should be much smaller. A much more complete set of pre-/co-reqs has likely been applied already to support the few PTFs that you request. Tom

    Reloading of the CUM and group PTF's insures that you load and apply any PTF's that the new LICPGM may need.
