that our client mainframe doesn;t support joinkeys. Now we asked our Tech Support guys to install the required PTF for joinkeys. but they are not sure if the the installation of the mentioned PTF will impact the current settings of icetool or not.
Can anybody please tell me that does the installation of z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK51707 (Nov, 2009) PTF will impact anything? After the installation of this, anything that needs to be checked for any impact/integrity? please suggest.

Well, this is the legacy of Frank - but first suggestion would be -- why don't you first contact the DFSort-point-of-contact-for-your-shop? Is the support you mention about is from DFSort-support Team?
Such PTF upgrades never back-fire, IMHO. As a programmer one option, I can think of, is listing the defaults before and after installation and compare them.
