            available PSPs.

     SF99750 – Order this PTF number when you would like to receive the
               latest cumulative PTF package that is available in your
               country.

     SF99959 – Ordering this PTF number will result in the shipment of all
               known HIPERs.  SF99959 will be refreshed on Tuesday of every
               other week.

     SF98242 – This PSP contains a short version of the cumulative PTF
               instructions and the detailed installation instructions for a
               previous cumulative package.

     SF96242 – This PSP contains the listing of PTFs on the cumulative PTF
               package for a previous cumulative package.

     SF98243 – This PSP contains a short version of the cumulative PTF
               instructions and the detailed installation instructions for
               the current cumulative package.

     SF96243 – This PSP contains the listing of PTFs on the cumulative PTF
               package for the current cumulative package.

     SF98750 – This PSP contains information on all known High Impact and
               Pervasive (HIPER) PTF problems that are NOT included in the
               latest cumulative PTF package but may affect your operation.
               This PSP also contains General Information items. If there are
               any defective PTFs that were in the cumulative PTF package,
               they would also be listed in the PTFs in Error Section of this
               PSP.

     SF98245 – This PSP provides information for a specific cumulative PTF
               package level.  The summary table (above) cross references the
               PSP number to the cumulative package level. Order the PSP
               number that corresponds to the cumulative package you are
               installing or last installed. This PSP contains HIPERs and
               General Information items. If there are any defective PTFs
               that were in the cumulative PTF package, they would also be
               listed in the PTFs in Error Section of this PSP. The PSP for
               the cumulative package you have installed should be ordered
               periodically and reviewed for the latest information on known
               problems.

     SF98247 – This PSP contains a summary of PTFs that have been identified
               as High Impact or Pervasive problems and a summary of

     SF98248 – This PSP provides a complete list of i 7.5 Defective PTFs
               (PTFs in Error). Users who regularly order and apply
               individual PTFs should periodically review this PSP.

     SF98249 – This PSP provides a complete list of all the High Impact or
               Pervasive (HIPER) problems that have been discovered for i
               7.5.  Those users who support several systems at different
               cumulative package levels may find this PSP useful.

     MF98750 – This PSP provides information that should be reviewed before
               installing new systems or hardware devices. Problems that may
               affect the installation or operation of hardware devices are
               documented here.

     SF97053 – This PSP provides a listing to assist you when upgrading from
               i 7.3 to i 7.5. This listing allows you to analyze the
               PTFs/Fixes you currently have installed on your i 7.3 system
               and determine which i 7.5 PTFs/Fixes you need to order to
               maintain the same or higher PTF/Fix level as you upgrade to i
               7.5.

     SF97054 – This PSP provides a listing to assist you when upgrading from
               i 7.4 to i 7.5. This listing allows you to analyze the
               PTFs/Fixes you currently have installed on your i 7.4 system
               and determine which i 7.5 PTFs/Fixes you need to order to
               maintain the same or higher PTF/Fix level as you upgrade to i
               7.5.

     SF97750 – The listing provides you with a convenient reference of the
               license internal code fixes (fixes) and program temporary
               fixes (PTFS) that are available by IBM licensed program
               categories. This listing is updated regularly. You may choose
               to order a PTF/FIX that would affect one of your IBM licensed
               programs.

   This section provides details on High Impact or Pervasive
   (HIPER) problems.  The PTFs that fix the problems
   identified in this section are available as individual PTFs.

   NOTE: HIPERs that were included in the first cumulative PTF
         package are not included in this list.  All users are
         expected to have installed at least one cumulative
         package so those PTFs will already be applied to their
         systems.

   – ‘PROBLEM’        – This field provides a reference to the APAR
                        that addresses the problem (ie: SE01234),
                        the Licensed Program Number, and a brief
                        description of the problem.

   – ‘USERS AFFECTED’ – This field describes the users who are
                        exposed to this problem.

   – ‘RECOMMENDATION’ – This field describes the action you should
                        take to avoid the problem.

  NOTE: You should evaluate each entry to determine the impact of
        the problem to your operations.  Depending on your
        environment and the requirements of your users, you may
        need to follow the recommendation immediately or you may
        be able to incorporate the recommendation into future
        system maintenance.

   This section provides a list of PTFs included in this
   cumulative PTF package that were found to cause problems for
   some users after this package began shipping.  You should
   review the ‘USERS AFFECTED’ field for each item to decide if you
   are exposed to the problem.  If you are exposed to the problem,
   the ‘RECOMMENDATION’ should be followed.

   Users who regularly order and apply individual PTFs should
   periodically review PSP SF98248.

   Under certain conditions, we recommend that a PTF applied to
   your system be removed or that a PTF be omitted when applying
   a cumulative package.  Instructions for removing and omitting
   PTFs follow the PTFs in error.

   – ‘DEFECTIVE PTF’    – This field contains the identity (PTF
                          number) of the PTF that is defective.

   – ‘LICENSED PROGRAM  – The Licensed Program Number
      NUMBER’

   – ‘APAR NUMBER’      – The identity of the APAR that reports the
                          problem.

   – ‘USERS AFFECTED’   – This field describes the users who are
                          exposed to the problem.

   – ‘REASON DEFECTIVE’ – This field provides a description of the
                          problem caused by the error in the PTF.

   – ‘RECOMMENDATION’   – This field describes the action you
                          should take to avoid the problem.

                   RECOMMENDATION: Either remove the defective PTF or apply
                                   the fixing PTF SI80094. Then, delete any
                                   remote journal receivers with object and
