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

The only thing missing is the VFYIMGCLG command or the WRKIMGCLG to select option 10 as you listed.
Also to LODIMGCLGE before you verify.

If this is your first attempt at using virtual images, then you must create your virtual device:
CRTDEVOPT DEVD(virtual-device-name)RSRCNAME(*VRT) ONLINE(*YES)+
TEXT(text-description)

Hi,

Download the PTF from FIX center first….if you do not have Image or CD.

FTP the PTF to your AS400 Server
then CRTIMGCLG(create Image Catalog)
ADDIMGCLG(Add entry to Image catalog)
Then verify the (option 10)
then GO PTF option 8

put vartuall device name and hit Enter

After complete

Check log to verify by using option 50 in GO LICPGM

Thnaks and regards

Hello Everyone

Please correct me if I missed some thing or I am wrong.

======================================================

PTFs may have pre-requisites and co-requisites.

A pre-requisite is an element that must exist or an action that must be completed before the new PTF can be loaded and applied. In general, a pre-requisite PTF is a PTF that must already be applied on your system before the new PTF can be loaded and applied. For example, IBM might create a new feature for SQL and distribute it as a DB2 PTF. Later, they might create another new feature that requires the first feature before the new one can work. The first PTF might then be designated as a pre-requisite for the second PTF.

If you look at the cover letter for a PTF and see that pre-requisite PTFs are listed, you know that those PTFs will need to be available on your system before the new PTF can be applied. The built-in procedures for ordering PTFs will usually check for pre-requisites in case they need to be ordered at the same time. The result of an order might be that a long series of PTFs is actually ordered.

A co-requisite PTF is one that is also needed in order for the new PTF to work, but it would generally be ordered and applied together with the new PTF. Usually, the co-requisite will make a corresponding change in a different component of the product or even in a different product. For example, a DB2 PTF might have a co-requisite PTF for the operating system.

In short, when a PTF has pre-requisites listed, the pre-requisites should already be applied before attempting to load the new one. When a PTF has co-requisites, the co-requisites will generally be loaded along with the new PTF.

    When you connect to fix central select to download PTFs for system *yoursystem* and tell it to include prerequisites and co-requesites. The download wizard will check to see which pre and co reqs you have and or need and download all of the PTFs you need to go with the PTF you were trying to get. You usually must install the prereqs first and co reqs get installed at the same time as the primary PTF.
