z/OS download fixes

z/OS download fixes
Help! My link to download PTF's doesn't work any more, and I have not
been able to find a page on IBM's web site to perform this function.
Does anyone have a link that works? It seems like IBM loves to torment
me by changing the location of the things I need from time to time.

Thanks!

Cathy Taddei

At various times
http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/srchBroker/views/srchBroker.jsp?rs=112
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/db2/support/db2zos/
have worked. (And at other times have not worked).

There is also IBMLINK, but that's country specific and I don't know what you'ld use.

Hi Cathy

Apart the links posted by J. Campbell, you can go directly to PTF download
page from IBM technical help web page

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/srchBroker/views/srchBroker.jsp?rs=112

You search the desired apar/PTF (or some words), at the bottom of the
relative page there's the PTF(s) (usually more than 1) you need for your
z/OS,DB2,VTAM etc version and clicking on it will bring you directly to
PTF order page, so you don't need to save the link to that page that can
change over time.

Re: z/OS download fixes

Thanks, Max, and thanks to everyone else who sent links. I followed
them all, and though I found various ways of obtaining PTF's, none were
the page I was looking for. But I did submit a feedback to IBM, and
Bill Stern came through for me with this link:

http://www-304.ibm.com/jct01004c/systems/support/z/zos/downloading.html

In my opinion, it's the best way to download PTF's -- you can paste in
any number of PTF's, submit the order, and in a few minutes you get an
email with a userid, password, directory, and dataset names that you
retrieve from IBM's ftp site. I have automated the process, and thus
was very annoyed when they changed the web address AGAIN (because they
love to torment me, I'm sure). But I'm so glad it is still there -- I
tried using SRD yesterday, and it is a PITA.

Merry Christmas!
