Introduction:

Verification that PTFs/fixes for the product are applyed.

Question:

I applied production fixes to our test LPARS and all seems to be fine.

How can I verify that the fixes are actually on?   

Environment:
z/OS r2.2
Answer:

From a SYSVIEW session enter the command LISTMODS (for MVS fixes) or CMODS (for CICS fixes).

On the command line enter the Select command:

SELECT FIXLEVEL NB 

The FixLevel column will show you the module fixlevel.

 

Additional Information:

You could also use the SYSVIEW DUMP command to verify the FixLevel.

From the LISTMODS/CMODS command on the command line enter 

DUMP

Place the cursor under the Epaddr (Entry Point Address) for the module.

Hit ENTER.

On the Right of the display it will show you the RMID/PTF number with the date/time of the PTF.
