Issue/Introduction

Is there any command that displays all the installed/applied PTFs in TPX?

Environment

Release  5.4

Component  TPX for Z/OS

Resolution

Unfortunately there is no command that displays PTFs that have been applied.
However, there are some alternate ways to display the same information:

Option #01)
- Run a SMPLST batch job to see all PTFs applied in TPX. See the JCL sample below:

//* JCL Sample with all PTFs applied in TPX
//*
//SMP     EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,PARM='DATE=U',REGION=6M
//SMPCSI   DD  DSN=your.CSI,DISP=SHR                  
<<<<<<< TPX CSI
//SMPCNTL  DD  DDNAME=SYSIN
//SMPHOLD  DD  DUMMY
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SMPOUT   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SMPLIST  DD  DSN=your.output.dsn                    
<<<<<< output name
//  DISP=(,CATLG),UNIT=SYSDA,
//  SPACE=(CYL,(2,1)),DCB=(RECFM=FBA,LRECL=121,BLKSIZE=27951)
//SYSUDUMP DD  SYSOUT=*
//SMPLOG   DD  DUMMY
//SMPRPT   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SMPWRK1  DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(10,5,250))
//SYSUT1   DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,1))
//SYSLIB   DD  DSN=SYS1.MACLIB,DISP=SHR
//PARMLIB  DD  DSN=SYS1.PARMLIB,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
   SET    BOUNDARY (CAIT0).
   LIST
    PTFS.

 
Option #02)

There is a new facility in Sysview that can provide this level of detail in your SMPe environment, however, it is dependent on Sysview being available.

To use this feature, make sure you have the following PTFs installed:

    LU07118  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07119  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07120  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07121  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07122  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07123  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07124  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07125  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07126  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07127  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07128  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07129  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07130  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07131  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07132  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07133  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET
    LU07134  09-02-2022  PTF TRACKING ELEMENT LEVEL SET


After the installation of the above PTFs, it is possible to view all the TPX solutions applied
 using SYSVIEW panels.

 

1) Go to SYSVIEW main panel

2) Enter 'PTF' in the command line, press Enter

3) Edit the fields with the correct XML library, CSI, and FMID to display the Maints of TPX <it will not save anywhere unless you want to update the SYSVIEW PARM>, press Enter

 

XMLLIB  your.tpx.CB0VXML       <Target XML library>

CSI     your.tpx.CSI           <Your own CSI dataset>

FMID    CB0V540                <you can change to a different TPX FMID> 


 

4). Type 'SORT APPLIED D' in the command line, it will list out the latest PTFs on top by the applied date.

5). 'S' to select any of the SYSMODs from the list to view the PTF description.
