There are three JCL members in dbcpfx.PROCLIB that are related to SMP/E APPLY processing. To perform SMP/E APPLY, execute only the member(s) that are required for your installation. See the following table for a list of the members.
Run the APPLY and APPMNT jobs as separate SMP steps. Do not combine them into one SMP step.
|APPLY||Installs the base function plus any dependent functions at the major or minor release level|
|APPCHK||Simulates an APPLY of PTFs and APARs so you can do troubleshooting before running APPMNT or EAPPLY|
|APPMNT||Applies a maintenance (PTF) release to an existing system|
|EAPPLY||Applies an emergency (APAR) release to an existing system|
