SNDPTFORD of cumulative does not order/update Hiper or DB group in WRKPTFGRP

Technote (FAQ)


Why when using SNDPTFORD to order a cumulative SF997x0 PTF package, does not order or update WRKPTFGRP for the hiper and db groups


If the cumulative PTF package being ordered is for a version or release that is different than the ordering system .. then ONLY the cumulative package is ordered. The hiper and DB group must be ordered specifically. This is working as currently designed.


The hiper and db PTF groups must be ordered specifically, when the i OS level is different that the cumulative level being ordered.
