Description:
dbginfo.sh: Collect more debug data.
Symptom:
Missing data for analysis of customer problems.
Problem:
Important commands and directories are not captured from dbginfo.sh.

Problem-ID:
-
Description:
dasdinfo: Wrong uid in some special cases.
Symptom:
In setups with many DASD devices dasdinfo sometimes returns a wrong uid if called using a device node (-d option).
Problem:
Missing check in major/minor comparisons.
Solution:
Add sanity check.
Problem-ID:
32059
Description:
zfcpdump: No progress messages without SCLP console.
Symptom:
During the dump process no progress messages are written to the operator console.
Problem:
If a system has another default console type than SCLP, this console device is disabled by the zfcpdump code using the cio_ignore kernel parameter. Therefore no messages are written any more.
Solution:
Do not disable the console device.
Problem-ID:
-
Description:
zipl: dump_mem parameter can not be set for SCSI dump.
Symptom:
When preparing a SCSI dump disk without additional parameters, the optional memory parameter is always ignored.
Problem:
The memory parameter is not added to the kernel parameter line, if no additional kernel parameters have been specified.
Solution:
Add memory parameter in every case.
Problem-ID:
32725
Description:
zipl: boot menu uses wrong conversion table for input on LPAR.
Symptom:
When specifying extra kernel parameters via the boot menu on LPAR, characters like [, ], |, !, ^ are incorrectly converted and may lead to invalid kernel parameters (e.g. cio_ignore=all,!0.0.1000).
Problem:
zipl does not differentiate between z/VM console (EBCDIC 037) and LPAR (EBCDIC 500) when converting EBCDIC user input.
Solution:
Use EBCDIC 500 conversion table on LPAR.
Problem-ID:
34247
