Last week there was an entry on VSE-L with title "PSP for z/VSE 6.2". Thanks for that, Kevin !
Kevin got too many PTFs not related to z/VSE 6.2 from IBM Shopz. I assume, he used the z/VSE Installed Software Report Tool output to order the PTFs. The tool generates the report from the z/VSE History File based on the CLC (component level code). The reason for that many PTFs is, that the IBM IPv6/VSE product has the same CLC (F10) as a very old end of service VSE component - VSE/SP Unique Code 5.1.0. MSHP will ignore the superfluous PTFs. So that will not cause any problem.
Remark: IBM TCP/IP for z/VSE 2.2 and IPv6/VSE 1.3 are pre-installed on z/VSE 6.2. If you don't have a license for one of these products, please run the corresponding delete jobs (DELTCPIP or DELIPV6) from ICCF library 59.
So you can reduce the number of PTFs, if IPv6/VSE is not licensed.
