Abstract

OSP FIND DAMAGED PTFS

Error Description

When there are missing PTF objects, PTF Install encounters      
damage one PTF at a time and fails with an error.  The          
subsequent PTF Install encounters the next damaged PTF, and    
again, needs to be restarted.  This time-consuming process often
results in having to reinstall products and then reinstall the  
PTFs.

When there are missing PTF objects, PTF Install encounters      
damage one PTF at a time and fails with an error.  The          
subsequent PTF Install encounters the next damaged PTF, and    
again, needs to be restarted.  This time-consuming process often
results in having to reinstall products and then reinstall the  
PTFs.                                                          

Problem Conclusion

This change provides the ability to call QPZSYNC with a new    
action parameter value to find all PTFs with missing required  
objects and mark them Damaged.  The damaged PTFs can then      
re-installed without having to reinstall the products.
