but ther does not seem to be any sf99xxx data areas on our system.
Group PTFs are a group of PTFs designed to get a specific product, like TCP/IP or WebSphere to a common, tested level. Some group PTFs even include other group PTFs, for example the Cumulative group PTF includes the HIPER group and the DataBase group, and the WebSphere group PTF will include the Java group and the HTTP Server group.
You can view your current group PTFs using the command WRKPTFGRP (Work with PTF Groups)
Check the Preventive Service Planning database for updated information.
