A single PTF and cumes are noted below. Group PTFs are a collection of PTFs for a particular function of the iSeries such as:

    Why install the cumulative first?

    Cumes are generally an older collection of PTFs therefore shold be installed first. Single PTFs are made when new issues are reported, as such may supercede the cume. You can read the cover letter of the cume to confirm (if the single PTF is listed).
