    Question: 

    Why is the PTF I am trying to install from the SMP/E Environment Tab / Maintenance Subtab, not listed?

    I ran the Add External Maintenance Task for the PTF and it succeeded with a warning message:

    The processing finished successfully. However, the PTF was not inserted because it is already present in the catalog. It already existed within this release and has not been updated.

     

    Answer:

    Look on the Products Tab at the product and release to which the PTF belongs and you should see it there listed with No CSI availableThe reason is that the Component/FMID to which the PTF applies has not been installed in the CSI. 

    Install the Component/FMID first then the PTF will be available from the SMP/E Environment Tab / Maintenance Subtab.
