Can any one, help in finding out the APARs & PTFs that are installed in my mainframes... I mean steps I need to follow to get the required information APARs & PTFs installed.
Thanks in advance.
I suggest some reading
SMP/E for z/OS Userâ€™s Guide - It's a MUST.
SMP/E for z/OS Commands
SMP/E for z/OS Reference
First, you should find all global zones in your mainframe (they must have CSI LLQ).
It's like =3.4 in ISPF/PDF and searching for **.GLOBAL.CSI in "Dsname Level"
Second, i suggest using SMP/E ISPF/PDF dialog (=m.1 in my installation) to find out about target zones in those global zones.
Third, use a simple job to extract information about installed PTF's and APAR's.
SET BDY(MVST) .
LIST SYSMOD PTFS APAR .
You could also use SMP/E dialogs, of course.
It's rather lengthy list, so i suggest sending it to special SMPRPT DD
//SMPRPT DD PATH='/smpe/temp/listreport',
And ftp-ing it out from mainframe to pc for analysis.
