The SMP/E Dialog (ISPF Panels) is a tool that lets you easily check or verify if a fix is installed in an SMP/E environment. You may also want to use this tool to identify information for any given fix, including whether or not a fix is installed, what module (CSECT) it affects, what load module is affected, what target library the load module belongs to, install date and time stamps, and whether or not the fix has also been accepted.
To begin, you will need to identify where SMP/E is invoked from your ISPF menus. This could be the primary option menu, or within a sub menu. You will also need to know the SMP/E CSI dataset for the product.
So far we know if the fix is installed and what the status is for any zone. There may be situations where you may want more information, like which target library contains the MAC or SRC element, or in the case of a MOD, which load module and target library. For a MOD or LMOD (load module) you will want tomake note of the MOD and get back to the Cross-Zone Query screen (items 3 and 4 from above).
Note that all of this information tells you the status of a fix within the product/component SMP/E environment. Knowing the MOD (CSECT) and LMOD can be useful if you need to continue on to verify if a fix is implemented in the system run time environment.
This technique can be used for any SMP/E maintained product.
