Dates Files Written/Updated on Disk

I am auditing a client with 3 AS400s. I need to determine what order the OS was updated on each machine ( ie test, then sys1, then sys2). I want a list of files in QSYS and the dates they were written/updated on disk. I asked the ADMIN to use the DSPLNK command (specifically- DSPLNK OBJ('/QSYS/*') OUTPUT(*PRINT) DETAIL(*EXTENDED ). I was told that this would not work and that there is no easy way to get what I asked for. Did I make a legit request or - as I was told- is it too hard to do? Thank you, Roger

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

I think this will work:
1. At a command line enter DSPPTF
2. You will see a list of PTFs Beginning with TL06nnn or TL05nnn (TL05298 for example means that that Cume was released on the 298th day of 05)
3. Go to the last TLxxxxx entry and enter a ’5′ – Display PTF Details and then a ’1′ for General Information
4. You will see a line “Status date/time”. That should be the OS install date.
The dates on all the TLxxxxx entries above the last one will show you the Cume install dates. You will probably see multiple entries the same as the last one since usually multiple Cumes are installes with a release upgrade.

Hope that helps

    DSPPTF will show you when the PTFs were installed and the OS level but not necessarily the date OS was installed. DSPOBJD QSYS/*ALL TYPE(*ALL) OUTFILE(lib/file) will give a file with what you're requesting from the DSPLNK request. Running a query against that file or downing to a pc should give you what you want to know.

    I am running V5R1. When I enter the command WRKLICINF and display the entry for "Operating System/400", the 'Last Update' will show the date the operating system was installed. PTF's do not alter this date, so you will need to check for the latest CUM PTF application, as well as any specific PTF's that were applied.
