What we need to do when we identify some defective PTF’s on our system?

PTFs
Hi, I was comparing the PTF's applied on our system with PSP defective PTF report and found some PTF's to be defective. Though all these defective PTF's are in superseded status. Do I still need to consider applying the recommended PTF's by IBM for it? How do I delete these defective PTF's and reapply the one recommended by IBM? What is industry best practice and steps that needed to be followed to work with defective PTF's? Thanks!

    If PTF's are superseded (by another PTF) the corrective PTF from IBM has probably been applied. If a defective PTF has not been superseded and the apply is only tempory you can remove the PTF. Always check cover letters on the actions needed for the particular PTF.

    The PTFs are not on your system; you can't remove them and you don't need to remove them.

    You can't do anything with them unless you start maybe by removing the latest fixing PTFs first and possibly working backwards until reaching the point when the defective PTF becomes active; maybe. That's very unlikely and hardly worth trying.

    They are already "superseded". Ignore them.

    If they have been superseded that means IBM has corrected them. If there are still defective ones on your system, check with IBM to see if they have a correction in the works.
