PACKAGE ID:  C5063610
VERSION 6 RELEASE 1.0

Cumulative PTF Package Instructions Last Updated: 03/13/2015

Note: Online copy of this document is the master. Any printed
copy should be assumed to be obsolete and not used unless the
date of last update is verified to match that shown on the online
master copy.

The information contained in this document was current at the
time this cumulative PTF package was made available. We recommend
you get the most current information which can be found via the
following URL:

http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.nsf/sline003home

From this Web site, select "All Preventive Service Planning
Documents by Release", then select "R610". PSP SF98610 lists
HIPER PTFs not included in this cumulative PTF package and any
defective PTFs identified since this package was released.

Starting in V5R4M0, you may now receive the cumulative PTF
package in one of three different formats:

*  Electronically downloaded as individual PTF save files

*  Electronically downloaded as optical image files

*  Physical optical media (when it cannot be downloaded
   electronically)

The installation instructions contained in this document will
guide you through the install steps needed for each format.

PTF PRE-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR IBM i

As with any PTF order, before you install the PTFs you should
review the cover letter of each delivered PTF for any special
instructions that may need to be followed. The cumulative PTF
package media itself does not have any PTF cover letters because
any special instructions that need to be followed for the
cumulative package are contained in this document. However, when
you ordered your cumulative PTF package, you were automatically
sent the latest HIPER and Database PTF groups along with the
cumulative PTF package. You should review the cover letters for
the PTFs in these groups that are applicable to your system. The
commands needed for copying and printing (or displaying) the PTF
cover letter(s) are included below.

1. COPYING PTF COVER LETTERS:

   *  Mount the PTF media and sign on using a security officer
      user profile such as QSECOFR.

   *  To copy all cover letters from media onto the system for
      PTFs that are not already applied to your system, enter the
      following command:

      CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)

   *  To copy a specific cover letter from media onto the system,
      enter the following command:

      CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)

2. DISPLAYING OR PRINTING PTF COVER LETTERS:

   *  The PTF cover letters must be copied from the media first
      before they can be displayed or printed.

   *  To display or print cover letters for all PTFs that are
      currently not applied on your system, enter one of the
      following commands:

      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)
      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY) OUTPUT(*PRINT)



      Note: You can also specify CVRATR(*SPCINST) on the
      DSPPTFCVR command to view all cover letters that have
      special instructions.

   *  To display or print a specific cover letter, enter one of
      the following commands:

      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)
      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id) OUTPUT(*PRINT)

READ THIS FIRST

Failure to follow these instructions may result in failure of
your system to operate. Follow the directions carefully every
time you install a cumulative PTF package.

Cumulative PTF packages must be installed delayed for proper PTF
installation. Do NOT use any immediate apply install options to
install this package; otherwise, unpredictable results may occur.

Vital PTF information: Application of PTFs within this cumulative
PTF package may disable or render ineffective programs that use
system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to
limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. These PTFs may be
prerequisites for future PTFs. By applying these PTFs you
authorize and agree to the foregoing.

Each of these PTFs is subject to the terms of the license
agreement which accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for
which you are obtaining such PTF. You are not authorized to
install or use any such PTF except as part of the Program for
which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.

SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS
EXPLICITLY AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN
APPLICABLE SUPPORT AGREEMENT, IBM MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON INFRINGEMENT, REGARDING
EACH PTF.

The applicable license agreement may have been provided to you in
printed form and/or may be viewed using the Work with Software
Agreements (WRKSFWAGR) CL command.

If you have Content Manager OnDemand - 5761RD1 - installed,
please see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21427866
for any important special instructions.

Please review the special instructions for the following PTFs in
this package (if you have the product installed). The PTF cover
letters are available at
http://www-912.ibm.com/a_dir/as4ptf.nsf/as4ptfhome

5761DP4-SI36668

To prevent a PTF install failure and automate any extra required
IPLs, PTF SI46159 must be active BEFORE installing this
cumulative PTF package. Enter the following command to determine
if PTF SI46159 is active:

DSPPTF LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(SI46159)

If the status is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied, the
PTF is active. If the status is Superseded, verify that the
superseding PTF is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied. If
PTF SI46159 is not found or not active, download and temporarily
apply PTF SI46159 BEFORE installing this cumulative PTF package.

This PTF cumulative package contains a special handling ptf
(MF58792 for V6R1M0 systems), (MF56484 for V6R1M1 systems) for
ensuring that the application of this cumulative ptf package will
not cause any unpredictable results as described in APAR MA39373.
If after applying this PTF delayed (which happens automatically
as a special handling PTF) and then attempting to apply the
package you receive message CPF7206 with a return code of X'C0'
in the message, then you should contact your provider of software
service for further assistance.

If the V5R2M0 version of 5798FAX product is installed on your
system make sure the system value QFRCCVNRST is set to 1 when
installing this package. You should make note of the original
value and set it back to that value after the installation has
completed.

The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package is
three to five hours.

You should have a current backup of your system before applying
this package. If you have backed up your system since the last
time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.

Be sure the IPL mode is set at Normal on the control panel and
sign on using a security officer user profile such as QSECOFR.

DO NOT cancel any of the steps once they are started. Allow each
step to complete normally.

Select the appropriate INSTALL steps below based on the format in
which you received the cumulative PTF package.

The PTF install processing will automatically pre-apply the
following PTFs when applicable: 5761SS1 PTFs SI41481, and
SI50906; 5761999 V6R1M0 PTFs MF48000, MF58792, MF51906, and
MF53679; 5761999 V6R1M1 PTFs MF48001, MF51907, MF53680, MF56191,
and MF56484. NOTE: Any PTFs that need to be manually pre-applied
are listed earlier in this READ THIS FIRST section.

   Note: If you have PTFs to omit, type Y in the Other Options
   field and follow the directions on the displays which follow.
   Refer to Appendix A in the detailed installation instructions
   section on omitting PTFs.

7. The display shows the licensed programs for which PTFs are
   being loaded.

   7.a. After each volume is processed, you will receive a
        message to mount the next volume. Load the volume
        indicated and use the G option to continue.

   7.b. After all the applicable volumes for the cumulative PTF
        package have been processed, you will automatically be
        prompted to mount the first volume of the next media set
        in order to install the HIPER and Database PTF groups.
        Mount the first volume in the set and use the G option to
        continue.

   7.c. Continue mounting any additional volumes. When all your
        volume sets have been processed, use the X option to
        complete the PTF installation.



   Note: If there are volumes that contain PTFs that are not
   applicable to your system, the system will not prompt you to
   mount those volumes.

8. Continue with the COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS section.

COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS

Use these steps to complete the install process.

1. If you receive IPL required to complete PTF install processing
   (escape message CPF362E):

   1.a. End all jobs on the system and perform a normal mode IPL
        to the B IPL source.
   1.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.

2. If the PTF install completes, continue with step 3. If the
   Confirm IPL for Special Handling PTFs display is shown:

   2.a. Press F10 to end all jobs on the system and IPL the
        system.
   2.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.

3. If you entered a Y (Yes) for the Automatic IPL option, the
   system will be IPLed automatically. If you entered N (No) for
   the Automatic IPL field, use the PWRDWNSYS command when you
   are ready to complete the installation of the package.

4. After the IPL completes, use the following procedure to verify
   the cumulative PTF package was properly installed:

   4.a. Sign on as QSECOFR.
   4.b. Type WRKPTFGRP SF99610 on any command line.
   4.c. If the Status field is "Installed" and the Level field is
        "15063", continue with step 5, otherwise, continue with
        step 4.d.
   4.d. Type GO LICPGM on any command line.
   4.e. Press the Enter key. The Work with Licensed Programs
        display is shown.
   4.f. Select option 50.
   4.g. Press the Enter key. The Install History display is
        shown.
   4.h. Press the Enter key. The Display History Log Contents
        display appears.

        *  If the cumulative PTF package was installed
           successfully, you will see messages indicating the
           applying of PTFs completed. Continue with step 5.
        *  If the cumulative PTF package was not installed
           successfully, you will see messages indicating the
           applying of PTFs failed. Contact your provider of
           software service for assistance.
        *  If the previous IPL was abnormal, only PTFs for the
           Licensed Internal Code will be applied (5761999). You
           can check if the previous IPL was abnormal by typing
           the following command:

           DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QABNORMSW)



           If the IPL was abnormal and you are installing this
           package immediately after a system install, perform
           the IPL again to apply the remaining PTFs.

5. You may be required to perform a server IPL to activate fixes
   that affect the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.

   A server IPL is an IPL whereby all logical partitions on the
   server are shut down at the same time. This allows a new level
   of the server firmware to be activated on the server.



   If your system is defined as the IBM i service partition and
   you are not controlling the level of server firmware using a
   Hardware Management Console, then you may be required to
   perform a server IPL if any PTFs that were installed affect
   the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.



   To determine if your system is operating as the service
   partition and has PTFs that require a server IPL perform the
   following steps:

   5.a. To determine if your system is the service partition,
        enter the following command and press the Enter key:

        DSPFMWSTS

   5.b. The Display Firmware Status display is shown. If the
        Service Partition field shows No, then your system is not
        defined as the service partition.

        If the Service Partition field shows Yes, then your
        system is defined as the service partition.

   5.c. If the Server IPL Required field shows YES, then a server
        IPL must be performed to activate the changes to the
        server firmware.



   If you are required to perform a server IPL, ensure your
   server IPL field shows Temporary.



   For information on how to perform a server IPL, refer to the
   IBM Knowledge Center:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/rzam8/rzam8fixinstallhmc.htm
   (IBM i 6.1>IBM i and related software>Maintaining and managing
   IBM i and related software>Using software fixes>Installing
   fixes>Step 3: Choosing your fix installation
   scenario>Installing fixes on systems managed by Hardware
   Management Console).

   Note: If your server has only one partition defined, no
   special steps need to be performed. The next IPL will activate
   the changes to the server firmware.

6. You can resume normal system operation at this time. You
   should back up your system again at your earliest convenience.

If you have comments or concerns with cumulative PTF packages,
contact your provider of software service.

Starting in V5R4M0, you may now receive the cumulative PTF
package in one of three different formats:

*  Electronically downloaded as individual PTF save files

*  Electronically downloaded as optical image files

*  Physical optical media (when it cannot be downloaded
   electronically)

The installation instructions contained in this document will
guide you through the install steps needed for each format.

READ THIS FIRST

Failure to follow these instructions may result in failure of
your system to operate. Follow the directions carefully every
time you install a cumulative PTF package.

Cumulative PTF packages must be installed delayed for proper PTF
installation. Do NOT use any immediate apply install options to
install this package; otherwise, unpredictable results may occur.

Vital PTF information: Application of PTFs within this cumulative
PTF package may disable or render ineffective programs that use
system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to
limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. These PTFs may be
prerequisites for future PTFs. By applying these PTFs you
authorize and agree to the foregoing.

Each of these PTFs is subject to the terms of the license
agreement which accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for
which you are obtaining such PTF. You are not authorized to
install or use any such PTF except as part of the Program for
which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.

SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS
EXPLICITLY AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN
APPLICABLE SUPPORT AGREEMENT, IBM MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON INFRINGEMENT, REGARDING
EACH PTF.

The applicable license agreement may have been provided to you in

Agreements (WRKSFWAGR) CL command.

If you have Content Manager OnDemand - 5761RD1 - installed,
please see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21427866
for any important special instructions.

Please review the special instructions for the following PTFs in
this package (if you have the product installed). The PTF cover
letters are available at
http://www-912.ibm.com/a_dir/as4ptf.nsf/as4ptfhome

5761DP4-SI36668

To prevent a PTF install failure and automate any extra required
IPLs, PTF SI46159 must be active BEFORE installing this
cumulative PTF package. Enter the following command to determine
if PTF SI46159 is active:

 DSPPTF LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(SI46159)

If the status is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied, the
PTF is active. If the status is Superseded, verify that the
superseding PTF is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied.

If PTF SI46159 is not found or not active, download and
temporarily apply PTF SI46159 BEFORE installing this cumulative
PTF package.

This PTF cumulative package contains a special handling ptf
(MF58792 for V6R1M0 systems), (MF56484 for V6R1M1 systems) for
ensuring that the application of this cumulative ptf package will
not cause any unpredictable results as described in APAR MA39373.
If after applying this PTF delayed (which happens automatically
as a special handling PTF) and then attempting to apply the
package you receive message CPF7206 with a return code of X'C0'
in the message, then you should contact your provider of software
service for further assistance.

If the V5R2M0 version of 5798FAX product is installed on your
system make sure the system value QFRCCVNRST is set to 1 when
installing this package. You should make note of the original
value and set it back to that value after the installation has
completed.

The PTF install processing will automatically pre-apply the
following PTFs when applicable: 5761SS1 PTFs SI41481, and
SI50906; 5761999 V6R1M0 PTFs MF48000, MF58792, MF51906, and
MF53679; 5761999 V6R1M1 PTFs MF48001, MF51907, MF53680, MF56191,
and MF56484. NOTE: Any PTFs that need to be manually pre-applied
are listed earlier in this READ THIS FIRST section.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

1. After reading this section, you should continue with the IBM i
   PTF INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS section.

2. If any problems have been discovered with the PTFs in this
   package since it was released, they will be documented in the
   Preventive Service Planning (PSP) information. The PSP
   information can be viewed via the Internet at the following
   URL:

    http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.nsf/sline003home



   From the above Web site, select "All Preventive Service
   Planning Documents by Release", select "R610", then select
   "SF98610" to review the PSP information.



   The PSP information can also be ordered from Electronic
   Customer Support (ECS) using the following command:

   SNDPTFORD SF98610



   The PSP information can also be obtained by calling your
   provider of software service and asking for the IBM i Version
   6 Release 1.0 PSP information for installing this cumulative
   PTF package (C5063610).



   The PSP information contains information about any high impact
   or pervasive problems that have been identified since this
   package was released. It is recommended that you order and
   install the PTFs for these problems if the USERS AFFECTED area
   pertains to you.



   If any PTFs in this package were found to be in error since
   this package was released, this information is also included
   in the PSP information. Users who will be affected by the
   error in a PTF should follow the RECOMMENDATION provided in
   the PSP.

3. You should have a current backup of your system before
   applying this package. If you have backed up your system since
   the last time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.

   Note: If you are installing this PTF package as a part of the
   Version 6 Release 1.0 installation process, you do not need to
   back up your system before you install this package.

4. If you specify automatic IPL option "N" to install this
   package, you must use the following command when you desire to
   activate the fixes:

   PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES) IPLSRC(B)

5. The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package
   is three to five hours.

   The actual time required for your system may vary based on the
   following:

   *  Length of time typically required to IPL your system
   *  Frequency of cumulative PTF package updates to your system
   *  Performance associated with your specific model
   *  Number of licensed programs installed on your system

6. If you have any problems applying these PTFs, contact your
   provider of software service.

7. It is recommended that you permanently apply the PTFs in this
   package after you are comfortable that your system has been
   operating successfully with these PTFs.

   This will free up disk space otherwise used by temporary
   copies of modules in the PTF. The amount of disk space taken
   up by a cumulative package installation depends on the number
   of Licensed Programs installed and the frequency with which
   you install and permanently apply the cumulative PTFs.

8. The QALWOBJRST system value determines whether
   security-sensitive objects may be restored to your system. If
   it is currently set to a value other than *ALL, this package
   may fail to install with message identifiers CPD373F or
   CPD3740. Use the command DSPSYSVAL QALWOBJRST to determine its
   value. If the value is *ALL, you may proceed with the package
   installation. If the value is not *ALL, write down the value
   displayed, and issue the command CHGSYSVAL QALWOBJRST *ALL
   prior to the package installation. This system value can be
   changed without an IPL. After the package installation is
   complete, similarly change the system value back to the
   initial value you wrote down.

9. Appendix B contains some basic troubleshooting information
   that may help if you experience a failure installing this
   cumulative PTF package.

10. Copying and Displaying Cumulative PTF Package Cover Letter.

    Note: The cover letter has been moved to 5761SS1 to provide
    common access for all users regardless of their installed
    release of Licensed Internal Code.



    10.a. To copy the cumulative PTF package cover letter from
          media onto the system, load the first volume in the
          optical drive (the default name is OPT01 for optical
          devices). Enter the following command:

          CPYPTFCVR DEV(xxxxx) LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(*ALL)
          CVROPT(*ALL)



          Note: Replace the XXXXX in the CPYPTFCVR command with
          the media device name (for example OPT01) where you
          have the cumulative package media loaded.

    10.b. After the cumulative PTF package cover letter has been
          copied from the media, the cover letter can be
          displayed by entering the following command:

          DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(TC15063)

   Note: If there are volumes that contain PTFs that are not
   applicable to your system, the system will not prompt you to
   mount those volumes.

4. Continue with the COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS section.

COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS

Use these steps to complete the install process.

1. If you receive IPL required to complete PTF install processing
   (escape message CPF362E):

   1.a. End all jobs on the system and perform a normal mode IPL
        to the B IPL source.
   1.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 5.

2. If the Confirm IPL for Special Handling PTFs display is shown:

   2.a. Press F10 to end all jobs on the system and IPL the
        system.
   2.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 5
        on page 8.

3. If you entered a Y (Yes) for the Automatic IPL option, the
   system will be IPLed automatically.

   After the IPL completes, the Sign On display is shown and the
   new PTFs are active. Read the following NOTEs, then go to STEP
   5.

   Note: During the power down of your service partition for
   eServer™ i5, system reference code D6xx430B or D6xx430A could
   be displayed for an extended amount of time. The "xx" should
   increment periodically and is a normal part of processing
   where server firmware code is being updated.



   Note: During the IPL, system reference code C9002967 could be
   displayed for an extended amount of time. This is normal
   (assuming the processor light flashes periodically). You may
   also notice two power down sequences, with a change in the IPL
   side that is displayed.



   Note: While applying Licensed Internal Code fixes, it may be
   necessary for the system to reorganize a portion of the
   Licensed Internal Code storage. While this reorganization is
   taking place, system reference codes (SRCs) C600 4400 and C600
   4401 are displayed.

4. If you entered an N (No) for the Automatic IPL option, the
   display shows the licensed programs for which PTFs are being
   loaded and marked to be temporarily applied upon the next
   unattended IPL. When this procedure completes, the Program
   Temporary Fix display is shown. When you are ready to complete
   the installation of the package, do the following:

   4.a. Notify all users to sign off the system, then enter the
        following command to put the system in a restricted
        state:

        ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED



        Press the Enter key. The message "ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) in
        progress" is shown.

   4.b. Enter the following command:

        DSPMSG QSYSOPR



        If the message "System ended to restricted condition" is
        shown, continue. Otherwise, repeat the above command
        until the message appears.

   4.c. Make sure the IPL mode is set at Normal on the control
        panel.

   4.d. Enter the following command to perform the IPL:

        PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES) IPLSRC(B)



        Press the Enter key.



        After the IPL completes, the Sign On display is shown and
        the new PTFs are active. Continue with STEP 5.

5. Use the following procedure to verify the cumulative package
   was properly installed:

   5.a. Sign on using a security officer user profile such as
        QSECOFR.
   5.b. Type WRKPTFGRP SF99610 on any command line.
   5.c. If the Status field is "Installed" and the Level field is
        "15063" continue with step 6, otherwise continue with
        step 5.d.
   5.d. Type GO LICPGM on any command line.
   5.e. Press the Enter key. The Work with Licensed Programs
        display is shown.
   5.f. Select option 50.
   5.g. Press the Enter key. The Install History display is
        shown.
   5.h. Press the Enter key. The Display History Log Contents
        display appears.

        *  If the cumulative package was installed successfully,
           you will see messages indicating the applying of PTFs
           completed. Continue with STEP 6.

        *  If the cumulative PTF package was not installed
           successfully, you will see messages indicating the
           applying of PTFs failed. Contact your provider of
           software service for assistance.

        *  If the previous IPL was abnormal, only PTFs for the
           Licensed Internal Code will be applied (5761999). You
           can check if the previous IPL was abnormal by typing
           the following command:

           DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QABNORMSW)



           If the IPL was abnormal and you are installing this
           package immediately after a system install, perform
           the IPL again to apply the remaining PTFs.

6. You may be required to perform a server IPL to activate fixes
   that affect the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.

   A server IPL is an IPL whereby all logical partitions on the
   server are shut down at the same time. This allows a new level
   of the server firmware to be activated on the server.



   If your system is defined as the IBM i service partition and
   you are not controlling the level of server firmware using a
   Hardware Management Console, then you may be required to
   perform a server IPL if any PTFs that were installed affect
   the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.



   To determine if your system is operating as the service
   partition and has PTFs that require a server IPL perform the
   following steps:

   6.a. To determine if your system is the service partition,
        enter the following command and press the Enter key:

        DSPFMWSTS
   6.b. The Display Firmware Status display is shown. If the
        Service Partition field shows No, then your system is not
        defined as the service partition.

        If the Service Partition field shows Yes, then your
        system is defined as the service partition.
   6.c. If the Server IPL Required field shows Yes, then a server
        IPL must be performed to activate the changes to the
        server firmware.



   If you are required to perform a server IPL, ensure your
   server IPL field shows Temporary.



   For information on how to perform a server IPL, refer to the
   IBM Knowledge Center:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/rzam8/rzam8fixinstallhmc.htm
   (IBM i 6.1>IBM i and related software>Maintaining and managing
   IBM i and related software>Using software fixes>Installing
   fixes>Step 3: Choosing your fix installation
   scenario>Installing fixes on systems managed by Hardware
   Management Console).



   Note: If your server has only one partition defined, no
   special steps need to be performed. The next IPL will activate
   the changes to the server firmware.

7. You can resume normal system operation at this time. You
   should back up your system again at your earliest convenience.

This concludes the installation of the IBM i cumulative PTF
package.

If you have comments or concerns with cumulative PTF packages,
contact your provider of software service.

APPENDIX A - OMITTING A PTF FROM THE PACKAGE (IBM i INSTALLED)

Use these steps when the Preventive Service Planning information
directs you to omit a PTF from the package. When complete, return
to the step following the one which sent you here.

1. Enter a Y (Yes) in the Other Options field. Press the Enter
   key.

2. If the Confirm Automatic IPL display is shown, follow the
   instructions on the display.

3. On the Other Install Options display, enter a Y (Yes) in the
   Omit PTFs field. If the Apply Type field is also shown, enter
   a 1 (1 = Set all PTFs delayed). Press the Enter key.

4. On the Omit Program Temporary Fixes display, select the
   products for which you wish to omit PTFs and press the Enter
   key.

5. On the PTFs to Omit display, enter a 1 in the option field and
   the PTF ID of the PTF you wish to omit in the PTF ID field and
   press the Enter key. The list will be updated.

   Repeat this step for each PTF you wish to omit for this
   product. Pressing the Enter key without any input on the
   display will take you to the PTFs to Omit display for the next
   product, or you will be returned to the Omit Program Temporary
   Fixes display once all selected products have been processed.

6. Press the Enter key at the Omit Program Temporary Fixes
   display to go to the Confirm to Omit PTFs display. Confirm
   that the list is correct and press the Enter key to continue
   with the package installation.

APPENDIX B - BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION

Q. Why is my IPL taking longer than usual?

A. If you have PTF SI46159 applied and an extra IPL is required
for Special Handling pre-apply PTFs, the extra IPL will be
performed automatically. During the next normal IPL, the Install
PTF command will be run during the "PTF Processing" IPL step in
the SCPF job and all PTFs will be set for delayed apply. The
partition will then be automatically restarted to apply all PTFs.

Q. My cumulative PTF package did not install. How do I figure out
what is wrong?

A. First you need to determine whether the failure occurred
during the load or apply phase of the cumulative package
installation. If the system did not IPL, then chances are the
failure occurred during the load phase. Do a help on the failure
message, then press F10 to view the messages in the joblog. Look
for escape messages that will indicate what the problem is. Fix
these errors and then try the request again.

If the system IPLed but the PTFs did not apply, go through the
following steps to determine where the failure occurred:

1. Verify that the IPL was a normal unattended IPL. PTFs will not
   be applied during an abnormal IPL or during an attended IPL.

2. Do a GO LICPGM and take option 50 to display the install
   history log for messages. Look for any messages that indicate
   that there was a failure during the install. The following
   messages are what you would expect to see during a successful
   cumulative PTF package installation:

   PTF installation process started.
   Loading of PTFs started.
   Loading of PTFs completed successfully.
   Marking of PTFs for delayed application started.
   Marking of PTFs for delayed application completed successfully.
   PTFs installed successfully.
   Apply PTF started.
   Applying of PTFs for product 5761999 completed successfully.
   Applying of PTFs for product 5761SS1 completed successfully.
   Applying of PTFs completed.
   PTFs applied or removed during IPL.



   If you find any failure messages, then you will need to go to
   the SCPF joblog to see the detailed messages that indicate
   what the problem is. To find the SCPF joblog, do the
   following:

   2.a. Enter the command: WRKJOB SCPF
   2.b. You may get a list of jobs. If you just did the IPL,
        enter a 1 next to the first one that is not active.
   2.c. Enter a 10 and press enter to look at the spooled files
        for that job. The detailed error messages should be found
        in this joblog.
   2.d. Find the error messages and try to determine what caused
        the error. If you can fix the problem, do so and then
        re-IPL the system to apply the remaining PTFs.
   2.e. If you cannot fix the problem, have the information in
        the joblog available when you call your provider of
        software service.

   electronically)

The installation instructions contained in this document will
guide you through the install steps needed for each format.

PTF PRE-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR IBM i

As with any PTF order, before you install the PTFs you should
review the cover letter of each delivered PTF for any special
instructions that may need to be followed. The cumulative PTF
package media itself does not have any PTF cover letters because
any special instructions that need to be followed for the
cumulative package are contained in this document. However, when
you ordered your cumulative PTF package, you were automatically
sent the latest HIPER and Database PTF groups along with the
cumulative PTF package. You should review the cover letters for
the PTFs in these groups that are applicable to your system. The
commands needed for copying and printing (or displaying) the PTF
cover letter(s) are included below.

1. COPYING PTF COVER LETTERS:

   *  Mount the PTF media and sign on using a security officer
      user profile such as QSECOFR.

   *  To copy all cover letters from media onto the system for
      PTFs that are not already applied to your system, enter the
      following command:

      CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)

   *  To copy a specific cover letter from media onto the system,
      enter the following command:

      CPYPTFCVR DEV(device_name) LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)

2. DISPLAYING OR PRINTING PTF COVER LETTERS:

   *  The PTF cover letters must be copied from the media first
      before they can be displayed or printed.

   *  To display or print cover letters for all PTFs that are
      currently not applied on your system, enter one of the
      following commands:

      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY)
      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(*ALL) SELECT(*NOTAPY) OUTPUT(*PRINT)



      Note: You can also specify CVRATR(*SPCINST) on the
      DSPPTFCVR command to view all cover letters that have
      special instructions.

   *  To display or print a specific cover letter, enter one of
      the following commands:

      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id)
      DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(product_id) SELECT(ptf_id) OUTPUT(*PRINT)

READ THIS FIRST

Failure to follow these instructions may result in failure of
your system to operate. Follow the directions carefully every
time you install a cumulative PTF package.

Cumulative PTF packages must be installed delayed for proper PTF
installation. Do NOT use any immediate apply install options to
install this package; otherwise, unpredictable results may occur.

Vital PTF information: Application of PTFs within this cumulative
PTF package may disable or render ineffective programs that use
system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to
limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. These PTFs may be
prerequisites for future PTFs. By applying these PTFs you
authorize and agree to the foregoing.

Each of these PTFs is subject to the terms of the license
agreement which accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for
which you are obtaining such PTF. You are not authorized to
install or use any such PTF except as part of the Program for
which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.

SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS
EXPLICITLY AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN
APPLICABLE SUPPORT AGREEMENT, IBM MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON INFRINGEMENT, REGARDING
EACH PTF.

The applicable license agreement may have been provided to you in
printed form and/or may be viewed using the Work with Software
Agreements (WRKSFWAGR) CL command.

If you have Content Manager OnDemand - 5761RD1 - installed,
please see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21427866
for any important special instructions.

Please review the special instructions for the following PTFs in
this package (if you have the product installed).
NOTE: PTF cover letters are available at
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas3PPPPPPP  where
PPPPPPP is the PTF number.

5761DP4-SI36668

To prevent a PTF install failure and automate any extra required
IPLs, PTF SI46159 must be active BEFORE installing this
cumulative PTF package. Enter the following command to determine
if PTF SI46159 is active:

DSPPTF LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(SI46159)

If the status is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied, the
PTF is active. If the status is Superseded, verify that the
superseding PTF is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied. If
PTF SI46159 is not found or not active, download and temporarily
apply PTF SI46159 BEFORE installing this cumulative PTF package.

This PTF cumulative package contains a special handling ptf
(MF58792 for V6R1M0 systems), (MF56484 for V6R1M1 systems) for
ensuring that the application of this cumulative ptf package will
not cause any unpredictable results as described in APAR MA39373.
If after applying this PTF delayed (which happens automatically
as a special handling PTF) and then attempting to apply the
package you receive message CPF7206 with a return code of X'C0'
in the message, then you should contact your provider of software
service for further assistance.

If the V5R2M0 version of 5798FAX product is installed on your
system make sure the system value QFRCCVNRST is set to 1 when
installing this package. You should make note of the original
value and set it back to that value after the installation has
completed.

The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package is
three to five hours.

You should have a current backup of your system before applying
this package. If you have backed up your system since the last
time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.

Be sure the IPL mode is set at Normal on the control panel and
sign on using a security officer user profile such as QSECOFR.

DO NOT cancel any of the steps once they are started. Allow each
step to complete normally.

Select the appropriate INSTALL steps below based on the format in

   7.c. Continue mounting any additional volumes. When all your
        volume sets have been processed, use the X option to
        complete the PTF installation.



   Note: If there are volumes that contain PTFs that are not
   applicable to your system, the system will not prompt you to
   mount those volumes.

8. Continue with the COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS section.

COMPLETE THE INSTALL PROCESS

Use these steps to complete the install process.

1. If you receive IPL required to complete PTF install processing
   (escape message CPF362E):

   1.a. End all jobs on the system and perform a normal mode IPL
        to the B IPL source.
   1.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.

2. If the PTF install completes, continue with step 3. If the
   Confirm IPL for Special Handling PTFs display is shown:

   2.a. Press F10 to end all jobs on the system and IPL the
        system.
   2.b. When the Sign On display is shown, continue with step 4.

3. If you entered a Y (Yes) for the Automatic IPL option, the
   system will be IPLed automatically. If you entered N (No) for
   the Automatic IPL field, use the PWRDWNSYS command when you
   are ready to complete the installation of the package.

4. After the IPL completes, use the following procedure to verify
   the cumulative PTF package was properly installed:

   4.a. Sign on as QSECOFR.
   4.b. Type WRKPTFGRP SF99610 on any command line.
   4.c. If the Status field is "Installed" and the Level field is
        "15063", continue with step 5, otherwise, continue with
        step 4.d.
   4.d. Type GO LICPGM on any command line.
   4.e. Press the Enter key. The Work with Licensed Programs
        display is shown.
   4.f. Select option 50.
   4.g. Press the Enter key. The Install History display is
        shown.
   4.h. Press the Enter key. The Display History Log Contents
        display appears.

        *  If the cumulative PTF package was installed
           successfully, you will see messages indicating the
           applying of PTFs completed. Continue with step 5.
        *  If the cumulative PTF package was not installed
           successfully, you will see messages indicating the
           applying of PTFs failed. Contact your provider of
           software service for assistance.
        *  If the previous IPL was abnormal, only PTFs for the
           Licensed Internal Code will be applied (5761999). You
           can check if the previous IPL was abnormal by typing
           the following command:

           DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QABNORMSW)



           If the IPL was abnormal and you are installing this
           package immediately after a system install, perform
           the IPL again to apply the remaining PTFs.

5. You may be required to perform a server IPL to activate fixes
   that affect the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.

   A server IPL is an IPL whereby all logical partitions on the
   server are shut down at the same time. This allows a new level
   of the server firmware to be activated on the server.



   If your system is defined as the IBM i service partition and
   you are not controlling the level of server firmware using a
   Hardware Management Console, then you may be required to
   perform a server IPL if any PTFs that were installed affect
   the server firmware portion of the Machine Code.



   To determine if your system is operating as the service
   partition and has PTFs that require a server IPL perform the
   following steps:

   5.a. To determine if your system is the service partition,
        enter the following command and press the Enter key:

        DSPFMWSTS

   5.b. The Display Firmware Status display is shown. If the
        Service Partition field shows No, then your system is not
        defined as the service partition.

        If the Service Partition field shows Yes, then your
        system is defined as the service partition.

   5.c. If the Server IPL Required field shows YES, then a server
        IPL must be performed to activate the changes to the
        server firmware.



   If you are required to perform a server IPL, ensure your
   server IPL field shows Temporary.



   For information on how to perform a server IPL, refer to the
   IBM Knowledge Center:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/rzam8/rzam8fixinstallhmc.htm
   (IBM i 6.1>IBM i and related software>Maintaining and managing
   IBM i and related software>Using software fixes>Installing
   fixes>Step 3: Choosing your fix installation
   scenario>Installing fixes on systems managed by Hardware
   Management Console).

   Note: If your server has only one partition defined, no
   special steps need to be performed. The next IPL will activate
   the changes to the server firmware.

6. You can resume normal system operation at this time. You
   should back up your system again at your earliest convenience.

If you have comments or concerns with cumulative PTF packages,
contact your provider of software service.

DETAILED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS                  
SF99610 Level 15063                          
PACKAGE ID:  C5063610                        
VERSION 6 RELEASE 1.0          

Cumulative PTF Package Instructions Last Updated: 03/13/2015

Note: Online copy of this document is the master. Any printed
copy should be assumed to be obsolete and not used unless the
date of last update is verified to match that shown on the online
master copy.

This PTF package replaces the following PTF packages for Version
6 Release 1.0. If you have any of the packages listed below, do
not spend time installing them. All PTFs from the earlier
packages are contained in this package.

C8064610   C8127610   C8190610  C8288610 C8365610
C9111610   C9279610   C0047610  C0215610 C1102610
C1256610   C2122610   C2305610  C3058610 C3312610
C4197610

Starting in V5R4M0, you may now receive the cumulative PTF
package in one of three different formats:

*  Electronically downloaded as individual PTF save files

*  Electronically downloaded as optical image files

*  Physical optical media (when it cannot be downloaded
   electronically)

The installation instructions contained in this document will
guide you through the install steps needed for each format.

READ THIS FIRST

Failure to follow these instructions may result in failure of
your system to operate. Follow the directions carefully every
time you install a cumulative PTF package.

Cumulative PTF packages must be installed delayed for proper PTF
installation. Do NOT use any immediate apply install options to
install this package; otherwise, unpredictable results may occur.

Vital PTF information: Application of PTFs within this cumulative
PTF package may disable or render ineffective programs that use
system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to
limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. These PTFs may be
prerequisites for future PTFs. By applying these PTFs you
authorize and agree to the foregoing.

Each of these PTFs is subject to the terms of the license
agreement which accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for
which you are obtaining such PTF. You are not authorized to
install or use any such PTF except as part of the Program for
which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.

SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS
EXPLICITLY AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN
APPLICABLE SUPPORT AGREEMENT, IBM MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON INFRINGEMENT, REGARDING
EACH PTF.

The applicable license agreement may have been provided to you in
printed form and/or may be viewed using the Work with Software
Agreements (WRKSFWAGR) CL command.

If you have Content Manager OnDemand - 5761RD1 - installed,
please see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21427866
for any important special instructions.

Please review the special instructions for the following PTFs in
this package (if you have the product installed).
NOTE: PTF cover letters are available at
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas3PPPPPPP  where
PPPPPPP is the PTF number.

5761DP4-SI36668

To prevent a PTF install failure and automate any extra required
IPLs, PTF SI46159 must be active BEFORE installing this
cumulative PTF package. Enter the following command to determine
if PTF SI46159 is active:

 DSPPTF LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(SI46159)

If the status is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied, the
PTF is active. If the status is Superseded, verify that the
superseding PTF is Temporarily applied or Permanently applied.

If PTF SI46159 is not found or not active, download and
temporarily apply PTF SI46159 BEFORE installing this cumulative
PTF package.

This PTF cumulative package contains a special handling ptf
(MF58792 for V6R1M0 systems), (MF56484 for V6R1M1 systems) for
ensuring that the application of this cumulative ptf package will
not cause any unpredictable results as described in APAR MA39373.
If after applying this PTF delayed (which happens automatically
as a special handling PTF) and then attempting to apply the
package you receive message CPF7206 with a return code of X'C0'
in the message, then you should contact your provider of software
service for further assistance.

If the V5R2M0 version of 5798FAX product is installed on your
system make sure the system value QFRCCVNRST is set to 1 when
installing this package. You should make note of the original
value and set it back to that value after the installation has
completed.

The PTF install processing will automatically pre-apply the
following PTFs when applicable: 5761SS1 PTFs SI41481, and
SI50906; 5761999 V6R1M0 PTFs MF48000, MF58792, MF51906, and
MF53679; 5761999 V6R1M1 PTFs MF48001, MF51907, MF53680, MF56191,
and MF56484. NOTE: Any PTFs that need to be manually pre-applied
are listed earlier in this READ THIS FIRST section.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

1. After reading this section, you should continue with the IBM i
   PTF INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS section.

2. If any problems have been discovered with the PTFs in this
   package since it was released, they will be documented in the
   Preventive Service Planning (PSP) information. The PSP
   information can be viewed via the Internet at the following
   URL:

    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1021657



   From the above Web site, select "All Preventive Service
   Planning Documents by Release", select "R610", then select
   "SF98610" to review the PSP information.



   The PSP information can also be ordered from Electronic
   Customer Support (ECS) using the following command:

   SNDPTFORD SF98610



   The PSP information can also be obtained by calling your
   provider of software service and asking for the IBM i Version
   6 Release 1.0 PSP information for installing this cumulative
   PTF package (C5063610).



   The PSP information contains information about any high impact
   or pervasive problems that have been identified since this
   package was released. It is recommended that you order and
   install the PTFs for these problems if the USERS AFFECTED area
   pertains to you.



   If any PTFs in this package were found to be in error since
   this package was released, this information is also included
   in the PSP information. Users who will be affected by the
   error in a PTF should follow the RECOMMENDATION provided in
   the PSP.

3. You should have a current backup of your system before
   applying this package. If you have backed up your system since
   the last time you applied PTFs, that backup is acceptable.

   Note: If you are installing this PTF package as a part of the
   Version 6 Release 1.0 installation process, you do not need to
   back up your system before you install this package.

4. If you specify automatic IPL option "N" to install this
   package, you must use the following command when you desire to
   activate the fixes:

   PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES) IPLSRC(B)

5. The approximate install time for this cumulative PTF package
   is three to five hours.

   The actual time required for your system may vary based on the
   following:

   *  Length of time typically required to IPL your system
   *  Frequency of cumulative PTF package updates to your system
   *  Performance associated with your specific model
   *  Number of licensed programs installed on your system

6. If you have any problems applying these PTFs, contact your
   provider of software service.

7. It is recommended that you permanently apply the PTFs in this
   package after you are comfortable that your system has been
   operating successfully with these PTFs.

   This will free up disk space otherwise used by temporary
   copies of modules in the PTF. The amount of disk space taken
   up by a cumulative package installation depends on the number
   of Licensed Programs installed and the frequency with which
   you install and permanently apply the cumulative PTFs.

8. The QALWOBJRST system value determines whether
   security-sensitive objects may be restored to your system. If
   it is currently set to a value other than *ALL, this package
   may fail to install with message identifiers CPD373F or
   CPD3740. Use the command DSPSYSVAL QALWOBJRST to determine its
   value. If the value is *ALL, you may proceed with the package
   installation. If the value is not *ALL, write down the value
   displayed, and issue the command CHGSYSVAL QALWOBJRST *ALL
   prior to the package installation. This system value can be
   changed without an IPL. After the package installation is
   complete, similarly change the system value back to the
   initial value you wrote down.

9. Appendix B contains some basic troubleshooting information
   that may help if you experience a failure installing this
   cumulative PTF package.

10. Copying and Displaying Cumulative PTF Package Cover Letter.

    Note: The cover letter has been moved to 5761SS1 to provide
    common access for all users regardless of their installed
    release of Licensed Internal Code.



    10.a. To copy the cumulative PTF package cover letter from
          media onto the system, load the first volume in the
          optical drive (the default name is OPT01 for optical
          devices). Enter the following command:

          CPYPTFCVR DEV(xxxxx) LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(*ALL)
          CVROPT(*ALL)



          Note: Replace the XXXXX in the CPYPTFCVR command with
          the media device name (for example OPT01) where you
          have the cumulative package media loaded.

    10.b. After the cumulative PTF package cover letter has been
          copied from the media, the cover letter can be
          displayed by entering the following command:

          DSPPTFCVR LICPGM(5761SS1) SELECT(TC15063)
