PTF Installation
I have 2 fixes that were downloaded and show as available in the fix inventory. They both can be applied immediate or delayed. Can I install them from Management Central by right clicking and selecting install while the system is up?

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

If the question is whether or not you can use Management Central, the answer depends on your configuration and authority. If the question is whether these can be loaded and applied while the system is running, the answer is “Yes.”

Note that the application of a PTF may affect a running process. Without knowing what’s running as well as what the PTFs are, it’s a bit of guesswork. But it’s been quite a few years since I ran into any problems.

    On the side of caution, I usually only do this while the system is active depending on the number of PTF objects within the PTF and what the fix is for. I only had 1 instance where it affected the users but that experience was enough for me.

    System save first, PTFs after. I can count on one hand the number of times I've applied PTFs when the system is up. Too many possible repercussions.
