IBM Fix Category Values and Descriptions

What is a fix category?


A fix category is an identifier used to group and associate PTFs to a particular category of software fixes.  A fix category might be used to identify a group of fixes that are required to support a particular hardware device, or to provide a particular software function, similar to how a preventive service planning bucket (PSP-bucket) identifies a group of PTFs.  Fix categories are supplied to you in the form of SMP/E FIXCAT HOLDDATA statements.  Each FIXCAT HOLDDATA statement associates an APAR and its related fixing PTF to one or more fix categories.

During SMP/E RECEIVE command processing, SMP/E translates fix category values into source IDs and assigns them to the resolving (fixing) PTFs identified on the HOLDDATA.  You can then use the fix category values as source IDs when selecting a set of PTFs to be applied.  For example, if you have a z/OS V1.12 target zone named ZOSR12T, you can attempt to install all required coexistence and fallback fixes for z/OS V2.1 that have already been received by using the following command:


SET BDY(ZOSR12T). 
  APPLY SOURCEID(IBM.Coexistence.z/OS.V2R1)
CHECK.

In addition, the SMP/E REPORT MISSINGFIX command can be used to identify PTFs for interesting fix categories that are missing in one or more target zones.  In this case only the latest HOLDDATA needs to be received and not the individual resolving PTFs.  For example, using the same zone as described above, you can identify all required coexistence and fallback fixes for z/OS V2.1 that are not yet applied in the ZOSR12T zone by using the following command:


SET BDY(GLOBAL).
  REPORT MISSINGFIX ZONES(ZOSR12T)
    FIXCAT(IBM.Coexistence.z/OS.V2R1).

For more information about the SMP/E APPLY or REPORT MISSINGFIX commands, see the SMP/E Commands book.  For a discussion on how fix categories can be used to replace the service recommendation section of PSP-buckets, see “SMP/E 3.5 – Simplifying PSP buckets”.


How do I acquire FIXCAT HOLDDATA statements?


For all IBM product and service offerings, SMP/E FIXCAT HOLDDATA statements are supplied in the same file as ERROR HOLDDATA statements.  This file is available using SMP/E RECEIVE ORDER, ShopzSeries, ServiceLink, CBPDO, ProductPac, ServerPac, SystemPac, and on the HOLDDATA website (full 2 year file only).
