Introduction:

Instructions:

No, there is not a cumulative group of PTFs available for download, however you can download all the PTFs at one time via CSO.

• Tailor your local FTP job using the 'Alternate FTP' information and run to download the zip package to your local USS environment, usually named scart0.zip

Note: 'Preferred FTP' does not provide a zip file, only individual files which CAUNZIP cannot use 

• Tailor and run your local CAUNZIP job to breakout the zip package and create SMPPTFIN within your local USS environment 

 

• Run local SMP/e APPLY which uses the files created by CAUNZIP 

– SMP/e will ignore any PTFs that are already applied so there is no reason to be selective, just APPLY them all. 

Additional Information:

CAUNZIP is easy to use because it automates separating files (PTFs and informational PTFs) and preparating for SMP/e processing. 

For CAUNZIP, FTP information and sample JCL, refer to link:
