Issue/Introduction

After applying PTF using SMP in the maintenance environment, we copied the LOAD library into several environments that does not have SMP environment. But, if there is no history information, we can not check the application status of PTF.



How to check the PTF application status without SMPLIST ?

Environment

z/OSPanvalet R14.5, R14.6

Resolution

You can check it by an Eye catcher in the module.

1. Please browse a PTF and check an Eye catcher.
2. Please find an Eye catcher by the ISPF 3.15 for the library.


For example;

ROxxxxx has the "?00-.PSINIT  mm/dd/yyhh:mm:ssPSINIT  LEVELnnnmm/dd/yyVRFI14.6A" as an Eye catcher.


Please input the dataset name and the search strings on ISPF 3.15.
