  Starting in V5R4M0, you may now receive the cumulative PTF
  package in one of three different formats:
 
  *  Electronically downloaded as individual PTF save files
 
  *  Electronically downloaded as optical image files
 
  *  Physical optical media (when it cannot be downloaded
     electronically)
 
  The installation instructions contained in this document will
  guide you through the install steps needed for each format.
 
  PTF PRE-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR IBM i
 
  As with any PTF order, before you install the PTFs you should
  review the cover letter of each delivered PTF for any special
  instructions that may need to be followed. The cumulative PTF
  package media itself does not have any PTF cover letters because
  any special instructions that need to be followed for the
  cumulative package are contained in this document. However, when
  you ordered your cumulative PTF package, you were automatically
  sent the latest HIPER and Database PTF groups along with the
  cumulative PTF package. You should review the cover letters for
  the PTFs in these groups that are applicable to your system. The
  commands needed for copying and printing (or displaying) the PTF
  cover letter(s) are included below.
 
  1. COPYING PTF COVER LETTERS:
 
     *  Mount the PTF media and sign on using a security officer
        user profile such as QSECOFR.
 
     *  To copy all cover letters from media onto the system for
        PTFs that are not already applied to your system, enter the
        following command:
 
        CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)
 
     *  To copy a specific cover letter from media onto the system,
        enter the following command:
 
        CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)
 
  2. DISPLAYING OR PRINTING PTF COVER LETTERS:
 
     *  The PTF cover letters must be copied from the media first
        before they can be displayed or printed.
 
     *  To display or print cover letters for all PTFs that are
        currently not applied on your system, enter one of the
        following commands:
 
        DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)
        DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY) OUTPUT(*PRINT)
 
 
 
        Note: You can also specify CVRATR(*SPCINST) on the
        DSPPTFCVR command to view all cover letters that have
        special instructions.
 
     *  To display or print a specific cover letter, enter one of
        the following commands:
 
        DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)
        DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id) OUTPUT(*PRINT)
 
  READ THIS FIRST
 
  Failure to follow these instructions may result in failure of
  your system to operate. Follow the directions carefully every
  time you install a cumulative PTF package.
 
  Cumulative PTF packages must be installed delayed for proper PTF
  installation. Do NOT use any immediate apply install options to
  install this package; otherwise, unpredictable results may occur.
 
  Vital PTF information: Application of PTFs within this cumulative
  PTF package may disable or render ineffective programs that use
  system memory addresses not generated by the IBM® translator,
  including programs that circumvent control technology designed to
  limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. These PTFs may be
  prerequisites for future PTFs. By applying these PTFs you
  authorize and agree to the foregoing.
 
  Each of these PTFs is subject to the terms of the license
  agreement which accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for
  which you are obtaining such PTF. You are not authorized to
  install or use any such PTF except as part of the Program for
  which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.
 
  SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS
  EXPLICITLY AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN
  APPLICABLE SUPPORT AGREEMENT, IBM MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR
  CONDITIONS EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY,

  for any important special instructions.
 
  Please review the special instructions for the following PTFs in
  this package (if you have the product installed). The PTF cover
  letters are available at
  http://www-912.ibm.com/a_dir/as4ptf.nsf/as4ptfhome
 
  5761DP4-SI36668
 
  To prevent a PTF install failure and automate any extra required
  IPLs, PTF SI46159 must be active BEFORE installing this
  cumulative PTF package. Enter the following command to determine
  if PTF SI46159 is active:
 
  DSPPTF LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(SI46159)
 
  If the status is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied, the
  PTF is active. If the status is Superseded, verify that the
  superseding PTF is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied. If
  PTF SI46159 is not found or not active, download and temporarily
  apply PTF SI46159 BEFORE installing this cumulative PTF package.
 
  This PTF cumulative package contains a special handling ptf
  (MF58792 for V6R1M0 systems), (MF56484 for V6R1M1 systems) for
  ensuring that the application of this cumulative ptf package will
  not cause any unpredictable results as described in APAR MA39373.
  If after applying this PTF delayed (which happens automatically
  as a special handling PTF) and then attempting to apply the
  package you receive message CPF7206 with a return code of X'C0'
  in the message, then you should contact your provider of software
  service for further assistance.
 
  If the V5R2M0 version of 5798FAX product is installed on your
  system make sure the system value QFRCCVNRST is set to 1 when
  installing this package. You should make note of the original
  value and set it back to that value after the installation has
  completed.
 
  The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package is
  three to five hours.
 
  You should have a current backup of your system before applying
  this package. If you have backed up your system since the last
  time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.
 
  Be sure the IPL mode is set at Normal on the control panel and
  sign on using a security officer user profile such as QSECOFR.
 
  DO NOT cancel any of the steps once they are started. Allow each
  step to complete normally.
 
  Select the appropriate INSTALL steps below based on the format in
  which you received the cumulative PTF package.
 
  The PTF install processing will automatically pre-apply the
  following PTFs when applicable: 5761SS1 PTFs SI41481, and
  SI50906; 5761999 V6R1M0 PTFs MF48000, MF58792, MF51906, and
  MF53679; 5761999 V6R1M1 PTFs MF48001, MF51907, MF53680, MF56191,
  and MF56484. NOTE: Any PTFs that need to be manually pre-applied
  are listed earlier in this READ THIS FIRST section.

          in order to install the HIPER and Database PTF groups.
          Mount the first volume in the set and use the G option to
          continue.
 
     7.c. Continue mounting any additional volumes. When all your
          volume sets have been processed, use the X option to
          complete the PTF installation.
 
 
 
     Note: If there are volumes that contain PTFs that are not
     applicable to your system, the system will not prompt you to
     mount those volumes.
 
  8. Continue with the COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS section.
 
  COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS
 
  Use these steps to complete the install process.
 
  1. If you receive IPL required to complete PTF install processing
     (escape message CPF362E):
 
     1.a. End all jobs on the system and perform a normal mode IPL
          to the B IPL source.
     1.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.
 
  2. If the PTF install completes, continue with step 3. If the
     Confirm IPL for Special Handling PTFs display is shown:
 
     2.a. Press F10 to end all jobs on the system and IPL the
          system.
     2.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.
 
  3. If you entered a Y (Yes) for the Automatic IPL option, the
     system will be IPLed automatically. If you entered N (No) for
     the Automatic IPL field, use the PWRDWNSYS command when you
     are ready to complete the installation of the package.
 
  4. After the IPL completes, use the following procedure to verify
     the cumulative PTF package was properly installed:
 
     4.a. Sign on as QSECOFR.
     4.b. Type WRKPTFGRP SF99610 on any command line.
     4.c. If the Status field is "Installed" and the Level field is
          "15063", continue with step 5, otherwise, continue with
          step 4.d.
     4.d. Type GO LICPGM on any command line.
     4.e. Press the Enter key. The Work with Licensed Programs
          display is shown.
     4.f. Select option 50.
     4.g. Press the Enter key. The Install History display is
          shown.
     4.h. Press the Enter key. The Display History Log Contents
          display appears.
 
          *  If the cumulative PTF package was installed
             successfully, you will see messages indicating the
             applying of PTFs completed. Continue with step 5.
          *  If the cumulative PTF package was not installed
             successfully, you will see messages indicating the
             applying of PTFs failed. Contact your provider of
             software service for assistance.
          *  If the previous IPL was abnormal, only PTFs for the
             Licensed Internal Code will be applied (5761999). You
             can check if the previous IPL was abnormal by typing
             the following command:
 
             DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QABNORMSW)
 
 
 
             If the IPL was abnormal and you are installing this
             package immediately after a system install, perform
             the IPL again to apply the remaining PTFs.
 
  5. You may be required to perform a server IPL to activate fixes
     that affect the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.
 
     A server IPL is an IPL whereby all logical partitions on the
     server are shut down at the same time. This allows a new level
     of the server firmware to be activated on the server.
 
 
 
     If your system is defined as the IBM i service partition and
     you are not controlling the level of server firmware using a
     Hardware Management Console, then you may be required to
     perform a server IPL if any PTFs that were installed affect
     the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.
 
 
 
     To determine if your system is operating as the service
     partition and has PTFs that require a server IPL perform the
     following steps:
 
     5.a. To determine if your system is the service partition,
          enter the following command and press the Enter key:
 
          DSPFMWSTS
 
     5.b. The Display Firmware Status display is shown. If the
          Service Partition field shows No, then your system is not
          defined as the service partition.
 
          If the Service Partition field shows Yes, then your
          system is defined as the service partition.
 
     5.c. If the Server IPL Required field shows YES, then a server
          IPL must be performed to activate the changes to the
          server firmware.
 
 
 
     If you are required to perform a server IPL, ensure your
     server IPL field shows Temporary.
 
 
 
     For information on how to perform a server IPL, refer to the
     IBM Knowledge Center:
     http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/rzam8/rzam8fixinstallhmc.htm
     (IBM i 6.1>IBM i and related software>Maintaining and managing
     IBM i and related software>Using software fixes>Installing
     fixes>Step 3: Choosing your fix installation
     scenario>Installing fixes on systems managed by Hardware
     Management Console).
 
     Note: If your server has only one partition defined, no
     special steps need to be performed. The next IPL will activate
     the changes to the server firmware.
 
  6. You can resume normal system operation at this time. You
     should back up your system again at your earliest convenience.
 
  If you have comments or concerns with cumulative PTF packages,
  contact your provider of software service.

     install the PTFs for these problems if the USERS AFFECTED area
     pertains to you.
 
 
 
     If any PTFs in this package were found to be in error since
     this package was released, this information is also included
     in the PSP information. Users who will be affected by the
     error in a PTF should follow the RECOMMENDATION provided in
     the PSP.
 
  3. You should have a current backup of your system before
     applying this package. If you have backed up your system since
     the last time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.
 
     Note: If you are installing this PTF package as a part of the
     Version 6 Release 1.0 installation process, you do not need to
     back up your system before you install this package.
 
  4. If you specify automatic IPL option "N" to install this
     package, you must use the following command when you desire to
     activate the fixes:
 
     PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES) IPLSRC(B)
 
  5. The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package
     is three to five hours.
 
     The actual time required for your system may vary based on the
     following:
 
     *  Length of time typically required to IPL your system
     *  Frequency of cumulative PTF package updates to your system
     *  Performance associated with your specific model
     *  Number of licensed programs installed on your system
 
  6. If you have any problems applying these PTFs, contact your
     provider of software service.
 
  7. It is recommended that you permanently apply the PTFs in this
     package after you are comfortable that your system has been
     operating successfully with these PTFs.
 
     This will free up disk space otherwise used by temporary
     copies of modules in the PTF. The amount of disk space taken
     up by a cumulative package installation depends on the number
     of Licensed Programs installed and the frequency with which
     you install and permanently apply the cumulative PTFs.
 
  8. The QALWOBJRST system value determines whether
     security-sensitive objects may be restored to your system. If
     it is currently set to a value other than *ALL, this package
     may fail to install with message identifiers CPD373F or
     CPD3740. Use the command DSPSYSVAL QALWOBJRST to determine its
     value. If the value is *ALL, you may proceed with the package
     installation. If the value is not *ALL, write down the value
     displayed, and issue the command CHGSYSVAL QALWOBJRST *ALL
     prior to the package installation. This system value can be
     changed without an IPL. After the package installation is
     complete, similarly change the system value back to the
     initial value you wrote down.
 
  9. Appendix B contains some basic troubleshooting information
     that may help if you experience a failure installing this
     cumulative PTF package.
 
  10. Copying and Displaying Cumulative PTF Package Cover Letter.
 
      Note: The cover letter has been moved to 5761SS1 to provide
      common access for all users regardless of their installed
      release of Licensed Internal Code.
 
 
 
      10.a. To copy the cumulative PTF package cover letter from
            media onto the system, load the first volume in the
            optical drive (the default name is OPT01 for optical
            devices). Enter the following command:
 
            CPYPTFCVR DEV(xxxxx) LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(*ALL)
            CVROPT(*ALL)
 
 
 
            Note: Replace the XXXXX in the CPYPTFCVR command with
            the media device name (for example OPT01) where you
            have the cumulative package media loaded.
 
      10.b. After the cumulative PTF package cover letter has been
            copied from the media, the cover letter can be
            displayed by entering the following command:
 
            DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(TC15063)

          Omit PTFs field and follow APPENDIX A ("OMITTING A PTF
          FROM THE PACKAGE") to omit any indicated PTFs. Otherwise,
          enter an N (No) in the Omit PTFs field.
 
     2.k. Press the Enter key.
 
 
 
     Note: If (after pressing the Enter key) the Confirm Install of
     Licensed Internal Code Fixes display is shown, press F10 to
     automatically IPL. Wait for the system to power down and start
     an IPL. When the Sign On display is shown, go back to STEP 1
     and start the installation of this cumulative PTF package
     again. (The next time through these instructions, you will not
     get this display.)
 
  3. The display shows the licensed programs for which PTFs are
     being loaded.
 
     3.a. After each volume is processed, you will receive a
          message to mount the next volume. Load the volume
          indicated and use the G option to continue.
 
     3.b. After all the applicable volumes for the cumulative PTF
          package have been processed, you will automatically be
          prompted to mount the first volume of the next media set
          in order to install the HIPER and Database PTF groups.
          Mount the first volume in the set and use the G option to
          continue.
 
     3.c. Continue mounting any additional volumes. When all your
          volume sets have been processed, use the X option to
          complete the PTF installation.
 
 
 
     Note: If there are volumes that contain PTFs that are not
     applicable to your system, the system will not prompt you to
     mount those volumes.
 
  4. Continue with the COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS section.
 
  COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS
 
  Use these steps to complete the install process.
 
  1. If you receive IPL required to complete PTF install processing
     (escape message CPF362E):
 
     1.a. End all jobs on the system and perform a normal mode IPL
          to the B IPL source.
     1.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 5.
 
  2. If the Confirm IPL for Special Handling PTFs display is shown:
 
     2.a. Press F10 to end all jobs on the system and IPL the
          system.
     2.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 5
          on page 8.
 
  3. If you entered a Y (Yes) for the Automatic IPL option, the
     system will be IPLed automatically.
 
     After the IPL completes, the Sign On display is shown and the
     new PTFs are active. Read the following NOTEs, then go to STEP
     5.
 
     Note: During the power down of your service partition for
     eServer™ i5, system reference code D6xx430B or D6xx430A could
     be displayed for an extended amount of time. The "xx" should
     increment periodically and is a normal part of processing
     where server firmware code is being updated.
 
 
 
     Note: During the IPL, system reference code C9002967 could be
     displayed for an extended amount of time. This is normal
     (assuming the processor light flashes periodically). You may
     also notice two power down sequences, with a change in the IPL
     side that is displayed.
 
 
 
     Note: While applying Licensed Internal Code fixes, it may be
     necessary for the system to reorganize a portion of the
     Licensed Internal Code storage. While this reorganization is
     taking place, system reference codes (SRCs) C600 4400 and C600
     4401 are displayed.
 
  4. If you entered an N (No) for the Automatic IPL option, the
     display shows the licensed programs for which PTFs are being
     loaded and marked to be temporarily applied upon the next
     unattended IPL. When this procedure completes, the Program
     Temporary Fix display is shown. When you are ready to complete
     the installation of the package, do the following:
 
     4.a. Notify all users to sign off the system, then enter the
          following command to put the system in a restricted
          state:
 
          ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED
 
 
 
          Press the Enter key. The message "ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) in
          progress" is shown.
 
     4.b. Enter the following command:
 
          DSPMSG QSYSOPR
 
 
 
          If the message "System ended to restricted condition" is
          shown, continue. Otherwise, repeat the above command
          until the message appears.
 
     4.c. Make sure the IPL mode is set at Normal on the control
          panel.
 
     4.d. Enter the following command to perform the IPL:
 
          PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES) IPLSRC(B)
 
 
 
          Press the Enter key.
 
 
 
          After the IPL completes, the Sign On display is shown and
          the new PTFs are active. Continue with STEP 5.
 
  5. Use the following procedure to verify the cumulative package
     was properly installed:
 
     5.a. Sign on using a security officer user profile such as
          QSECOFR.
     5.b. Type WRKPTFGRP SF99610 on any command line.
     5.c. If the Status field is "Installed" and the Level field is
          "15063" continue with step 6, otherwise continue with
          step 5.d.
     5.d. Type GO LICPGM on any command line.
     5.e. Press the Enter key. The Work with Licensed Programs
          display is shown.
     5.f. Select option 50.
     5.g. Press the Enter key. The Install History display is
          shown.
     5.h. Press the Enter key. The Display History Log Contents
          display appears.
 
          *  If the cumulative package was installed successfully,
             you will see messages indicating the applying of PTFs
             completed. Continue with STEP 6.
 
          *  If the cumulative PTF package was not installed
             successfully, you will see messages indicating the
             applying of PTFs failed. Contact your provider of
             software service for assistance.
 
          *  If the previous IPL was abnormal, only PTFs for the
             Licensed Internal Code will be applied (5761999). You
             can check if the previous IPL was abnormal by typing
             the following command:
 
             DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QABNORMSW)
 
 
 
             If the IPL was abnormal and you are installing this
             package immediately after a system install, perform
             the IPL again to apply the remaining PTFs.
 
  6. You may be required to perform a server IPL to activate fixes
     that affect the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.
 
     A server IPL is an IPL whereby all logical partitions on the
     server are shut down at the same time. This allows a new level
     of the server firmware to be activated on the server.
 
 
 
     If your system is defined as the IBM i service partition and
     you are not controlling the level of server firmware using a
     Hardware Management Console, then you may be required to
     perform a server IPL if any PTFs that were installed affect
     the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.
 
 
 
     To determine if your system is operating as the service
     partition and has PTFs that require a server IPL perform the
     following steps:
 
     6.a. To determine if your system is the service partition,
          enter the following command and press the Enter key:
 
          DSPFMWSTS
     6.b. The Display Firmware Status display is shown. If the
          Service Partition field shows No, then your system is not
          defined as the service partition.
 
          If the Service Partition field shows Yes, then your
          system is defined as the service partition.
     6.c. If the Server IPL Required field shows Yes, then a server
          IPL must be performed to activate the changes to the
          server firmware.
 
 
 
     If you are required to perform a server IPL, ensure your
     server IPL field shows Temporary.
 
 
 
     For information on how to perform a server IPL, refer to the
     IBM Knowledge Center:
     http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/rzam8/rzam8fixinstallhmc.htm
     (IBM i 6.1>IBM i and related software>Maintaining and managing
     IBM i and related software>Using software fixes>Installing
     fixes>Step 3: Choosing your fix installation
     scenario>Installing fixes on systems managed by Hardware
     Management Console).
 
 
 
     Note: If your server has only one partition defined, no
     special steps need to be performed. The next IPL will activate
     the changes to the server firmware.
 
  7. You can resume normal system operation at this time. You
     should back up your system again at your earliest convenience.
 
  This concludes the installation of the IBM i cumulative PTF
  package.
 
  If you have comments or concerns with cumulative PTF packages,
  contact your provider of software service.
 
  APPENDIX A - OMITTING A PTF FROM THE PACKAGE (IBM i INSTALLED)
 
  Use these steps when the Preventive Service Planning information
  directs you to omit a PTF from the package. When complete, return
  to the step following the one which sent you here.
 
  1. Enter a Y (Yes) in the Other Options field. Press the Enter
     key.
 
  2. If the Confirm Automatic IPL display is shown, follow the
     instructions on the display.
 
  3. On the Other Install Options display, enter a Y (Yes) in the
     Omit PTFs field. If the Apply Type field is also shown, enter
     a 1 (1 = Set all PTFs delayed). Press the Enter key.
 
  4. On the Omit Program Temporary Fixes display, select the
     products for which you wish to omit PTFs and press the Enter
     key.
 
  5. On the PTFs to Omit display, enter a 1 in the option field and
     the PTF ID of the PTF you wish to omit in the PTF ID field and
     press the Enter key. The list will be updated.
 
     Repeat this step for each PTF you wish to omit for this
     product. Pressing the Enter key without any input on the
     display will take you to the PTFs to Omit display for the next
     product, or you will be returned to the Omit Program Temporary
     Fixes display once all selected products have been processed.
 
  6. Press the Enter key at the Omit Program Temporary Fixes
     display to go to the Confirm to Omit PTFs display. Confirm
     that the list is correct and press the Enter key to continue
     with the package installation.
 
  APPENDIX B - BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION
 
  Q. Why is my IPL taking longer than usual?
 
  A. If you have PTF SI46159 applied and an extra IPL is required
  for Special Handling pre-apply PTFs, the extra IPL will be
  performed automatically. During the next normal IPL, the Install
  PTF command will be run during the "PTF Processing" IPL step in
  the SCPF job and all PTFs will be set for delayed apply. The
  partition will then be automatically restarted to apply all PTFs.
 
  Q. My cumulative PTF package did not install. How do I figure out
  what is wrong?
 
  A. First you need to determine whether the failure occurred
  during the load or apply phase of the cumulative package
  installation. If the system did not IPL, then chances are the
  failure occurred during the load phase. Do a help on the failure
  message, then press F10 to view the messages in the joblog. Look
  for escape messages that will indicate what the problem is. Fix
  these errors and then try the request again.
 
  If the system IPLed but the PTFs did not apply, go through the
  following steps to determine where the failure occurred:
 
  1. Verify that the IPL was a normal unattended IPL. PTFs will not
     be applied during an abnormal IPL or during an attended IPL.
 
  2. Do a GO LICPGM and take option 50 to display the install
     history log for messages. Look for any messages that indicate
     that there was a failure during the install. The following
     messages are what you would expect to see during a successful
     cumulative PTF package installation:
 
     PTF installation process started.
     Loading of PTFs started.
     Loading of PTFs completed successfully.
     Marking of PTFs for delayed application started.
     Marking of PTFs for delayed application completed successfully.
     PTFs installed successfully.
     Apply PTF started.
     Applying of PTFs for product 5761999 completed successfully.
     Applying of PTFs for product 5761SS1 completed successfully.
     Applying of PTFs completed.
     PTFs applied or removed during IPL.
 
 
 
     If you find any failure messages, then you will need to go to
     the SCPF joblog to see the detailed messages that indicate
     what the problem is. To find the SCPF joblog, do the
     following:
 
     2.a. Enter the command: WRKJOB SCPF
     2.b. You may get a list of jobs. If you just did the IPL,
          enter a 1 next to the first one that is not active.
     2.c. Enter a 10 and press enter to look at the spooled files
          for that job. The detailed error messages should be found
          in this joblog.
     2.d. Find the error messages and try to determine what caused
          the error. If you can fix the problem, do so and then
          re-IPL the system to apply the remaining PTFs.
     2.e. If you cannot fix the problem, have the information in
          the joblog available when you call your provider of
          software service.
