Advanced fix installation: Canceling the application of fixes
To prevent an i5/OS® fix that was selected to be installed at the next IPL from being installed, follow these directions.
To prevent a fix that is selected to be installed after you have already selected option 8 (Install program temporary fix package) on the GO PTF menu, but before the IPL has been done, enter the following command:
APYPTF LICPGM(XXXXXXX) SELECT(YYYYYYY) DELAYED(*YES)
APY(*TEMP) IPLAPY(*NO)where XXXXXXX is the licensed program and YYYYYYY is the number of the fix you want to omit.
This action resets the IPL apply indicator to IPL Action NONE.
This straight from the i5/OS Information Center. I have never tried this myself.
You could also just not do the unattended IPL.
Hope this helps,
