Hello,

Suggest you speak with the people responsible for installs/upgrades. They know the answers as well as the process followed.

Do not double-post - the duplicate has been removed.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

How was the new system created? Someone did the initial work.

If no one is available, you will probably get what you need talking with IBM.

Is anyone in the group familiar with SMP/E?
Hope this helps,

I suggest some reading
SMP/E for z/OS User’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',   
//            PATHOPTS=(OWRONLY,OTRUNC,OCREAT),
//            PATHMODE=SIRWXU,                 
//            FILEDATA=TEXT     

And ftp-ing it out from mainframe to pc for analysis.
