Question:

Do I need to apply hyper PTFs before loading a new PSP?

Answer:

If the hyper PTF is superseded by maintenance on the PSP, you do not need to apply the PTF. In general, hyper PTFs should be applied as soon as they are announced so that you will avoid problems that are addressed by the hyper PTF.

 

For example, CIC6808 was a hyper PTF that was delivered for CA MICS 12.9.   The next release of CA MICS is 14.0.  If you have not already applied CIC6808, it does not have to be applied before the 14.0 PSP is loaded because this PSP includes CIC6818, which supersedes CIC6808.
