Special Instructions

To help you determine if you need to install this SI66117 PTF,
you can do these steps:

Step 1. Install PTF SI66064 and follow the instructions in the cover
letter.  NOTE: SI66064 is also a pre-req of this PTF.

NOTE: You only need these additional steps below if directed
by your service provider.

Step 2. Install this PTF by itself without any other MF PTFs
and re-ipl again.  (NOTE: This will force the pre-requisite
MF PTF to be permanently applied)

Step 3. After the IPL up to the operating system, you have a choice:

a. If you are doing normal PTF cume packages processing, then you
are done and can move onto the next steps of the cume packages.

b. If you only want to install future immediate MF PTFs (one at a
time and not cume packages), then do another IPL so that it
processes the pending fix.  If you don't IPL, the pending fix
may prevent a subset of MF PTFs from being allowed as *IMMED
apply. You may get an error saying that the PTF can't be
*IMMED apply. *DELAYED PTFs will still work okay,
or you can force all PTFs *DELAYED.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
