PTF Group Installation
PTFs
Hi,
When i displaying Work with PTF groups it is showing 2 Cumulative PTF Packages C1137540(PTF Group SF99540) and C7016530(PTF Group SF99530). Both are showing installed. Do i need to get rid of one.
Also in WRKPTFGRP i have many PTF Groups with status NOT APPLICABLE.
Is it safe to get rid of them and if yes how can i remove them?
My OS is V5R4.
Thanks

    The help text says that "Not applicable" means:
    • All PTFs in the PTF group and related PTF groups are for products which are not installed or supported on this system.
    There is nothing on your system that any PTF in that group can be applied against. There is no reason to have that set of PTFs on your system unless you intend to install the feature that the group is designed to update. For example, you might not have Java installed but you have a Java group PTF package. Until you actually install Java on the system, the PTFs have no use to you. You should be able to delete that PTF package. Tom

    You can take option 4 from the wrkptfgrp display and will only delete the PTF Group information. This does not delete or remove any PTF's or related PTF Groups defined in the PTF Group. Hope this helps, Bill Poulin

    C1137540 broken down is from year 1 julian date 137 for release 5.4.0. C7016530 is from year 7 julian date 016 release 5.3.0. If you're at release 5.4, I'm not sure why it still shows the 5.3 CUM but it should be of no concern to you. As stated with the PTF groups, option 4 will delete it but have no bearing on the PTFs that are actually on the system. It's just a marker.

    Always delete the lower level Group PTF.

    Do i need to get rid of one. No. You don't "need" to. You can if you want. You can get rid of older ones, but it's mostly just getting rid of "the record of older ones". If you apply the PTFs that get uploaded to your system, the system can do most of the cleanup automatically, especially when applied permanently. If you have CD/DVD images of PTF packages stored in directories on your system, you might need to remove those after loading/applying the PTFs. If you have leftover PTF savefiles (probably in QGPL), you can also delete those after the PTFs have been applied. If you have multiple systems and use storage on this one system to hold images for other systems, you might want to keep them longer. Tom
