Today, there are PTFs that are being marked with the ++HOLDs that are associated with z/OS V2.2. Meaning, you can start running your SMP/E REPORT MISSINGFIX jobs right away to see if any positioning PTFs you need to install are outstanding. The FIXCATs for z/OS V2.2 are:
As it has been with prior releases, and you may not have been aware, these FIXCAT PTFs for z/OS V2.1 are also marked with the FIXCATs for z/OS V2.2. There are a couple of reasons behind that, but we do that so that you do not miss any z/OS V2.2 PTFs necessary. Even though you may see a lot of PTFs now with the z/OS V2.2 FIXCATs, it does not necessarily mean that all those PTFs are *newly* required for z/OS V2.2.
As is always the case with REPORT MISSINGFIX and a new z/OS release, run the job periodically as PTFs should be closing over time. Just wanted to let you know that that process has started and you can start to position now!
