  1. If you are upgrading to a new maintenance level (such as from 16.00.00 to 16.00.01) or installing emergency media, use APPCHK to simulate the installation before actually performing the APPLY step. The APPCHK member generates a regression report that lists the following information:
    • Missing software levels required for an upgrade
    • Existing software (USERMODs) that will be regressed after the APPLY

    If you are a new customer or if you are migrating to a new release (for example, from 16.00.00 to 16.00.01), you do not need to run APPCHK. APPCHK only simulates the installation process.

  2. To install a maintenance or emergency release, execute APPMNT or EAPPLY.
