*************************************************************************

   47. 07 Dec 2021 DEFECTIVE PTF:   SI77634 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770SS1
                   APAR NUMBER: SE76756

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, systems that apply
                                     LIC PTFs may fail when attempting to
                                     permanently apply with following errors:
                                     CPD35BA - PTF MFnnnnn not eligible for
                                     operation.  Reason code 06. CPF35A9 -
                                     Error occurred while processing Licensed
                                     Internal Code fix. In addition, even
                                     though the Temp apply of the LIC PTF
                                     appears to work, the new code is not
                                     active in LIC.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing PTF SI78039.  Enter DSPPTF
                                   SELECT(*NOTAPY) to determine if there are
                                   PTFs set to be applied at the next IPL.
                                   If any PTFs are listed with YES in the IPL
                                   Action column, refer to document
                                   https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6524
                                   654   Otherwise, CALL QPZSYNC  'L' and then
                                   reload and reapply the LIC PTF(s) which
                                   have been temporarily applied since the
                                   defective PTF was applied.

   46. 11 Aug 2021 DEFECTIVE PTF:   SI73462 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770SS1
                   APAR NUMBER: SE75867

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users using
                                   SNADS distributions commands such as
                                   SNDDST, SNDNETF, and SNDNETSPLF may
                                   encounter distribution corruption or SMTP
                                   failures following an abnormal IPL or
                                   after running RCLSTG.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, some objects that
                                     are not a SNADS distribution object are
                                     being processed incorrectly as a SNADS
                                     distribution object.  SMTP processing may
                                     also show unexpected errors when starting.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing PTF SI76759.

                                   If problems have already been identified,
                                   it is recommended that RCLSTG be run after
                                   the fixing PTF is applied to cleanup
                                   existing SNADS objects that have been
                                   affected.

   45. 05 May 2021 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MF68556 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA49031

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF as an immediate PTF,
                                     many different file system problems can
                                     occur. These problems are usually
                                     associated with LIC log entries with major
                                     code 2B00 (Integrated file system). These
                                     problems can result in data loss and loss
                                     of access to certain objects.

                                     This is an immediate apply issue only.
                                     Delay apply of this PTF does not result in
                                     this problem.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing LIC PTF MF68667 for IBM i 7.2.

   44. 25 Jan 2021 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MF67845 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA48860

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: Database queries requiring CCSID
                                     translation may fail with an MCH3601
                                     message indicating the from program as
                                     DbpmTranslateOperation.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing LIC PTF MF68320 for IBM i 7.2.

   43. 02 Dec 2020 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MF68138 for IBM i 7.2
                                    MF67590 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA48795

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users with a SAS
                                   attached TS4300 tape library.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, a SAS attached
                                     TS4300 tape library (D/T3555) will not
                                     configure properly.
                                     
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing LIC PTF MF68179.

                                   If a user has experienced the problem with
                                   a SAS attached TS4300 tape library they
                                   will need to apply the fixing PTF and then
                                   do one of the following:
                                   1) IPL the LPAR
                                   2) DLPAR remove and then add the SAS adapter
                                   3) Concurrent maintenance power off and
                                   then power on the SAS adapter

                                   MF68179 is included in cumulative PTF

                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, a restore of the
                                     QUSRSYS library fails to restore *UBPSPC
                                     (licensing usage) objects for products
                                     that are not currently installed.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing PTF SI74276.

                                   If possible, the fixing PTF should be
                                   applied to a source system before backing
                                   up for recovery or migration purposes. If
                                   this is not possible, it is recommended to
                                   apply before restoring the QUSRSYS library
                                   on the recovery target system. If this is
                                   also not possible, any errors relating to
                                   the restore of *UBPSPC objects during the
                                   restore of QUSRSYS may be temporarily
                                   ignored. Another attempt to restore the
                                   library may be made after the fixing PTF
                                   can be applied.

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, systems IPLing
                                     (especially using a manual IPL) with
                                     certain configurations can terminate with
                                     unpredictable SRCs. SRCB6000406 or
                                     SRCB90031FF have been seen. There is also
                                     a LIC LOG vl0A004004 showing a damaged
                                     context index.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply fixing LIC PTF MF67576.

                                   If this problem occurs, in most cases the
                                   damage will be corrected automatically
                                   during the context rebuild step of the
                                   next IPL, resulting in a long IPL.

   35. 30 May 2019 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MH01815 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5733909
                   APAR NUMBER: MB04215

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users with the
                                   following machine types/models: 900822L
                                   900922A 900941A 900942A 922322H 922342H
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: MH01815 upgrades the IBM i server to
                                     FW930.00.  An issue was found that causes
                                     resource information to be changed,
                                     specifically the location codes of some
                                     resources.  For IBM i standalone servers,
                                     the issue does not affect OS operations.
                   RECOMMENDATION: If you have already loaded AND applied
                                   MH01815, standalone (non HMC-managed IBM
                                   i) systems will have resource location
                                   changes following the apply IPL, and will
                                   generate new resources for internal use.
                                   This change will result in non-reporting
                                   hardware in Hardware Service Manager.
                                   While the non-reporting resources are
                                   effectively cosmetic, the removal of the
                                   non-reporting hardware should be done
                                   after the fixing PTF MH01816 (or its
                                   supersede), is applied.

                                   You can display the currently applied
                                   firmware using command DSPFMWSTS   If the
                                   *ACTIVE firmware level is "VL930_035
                                   MH01815", then the firmware with the issue
                                   is applied.

                                   Otherwise, perform the following IBM i
                                   command(s):
                                   DSPPTF LICPGM(5733909) SELECT(MH01815)
                                   RLS(V1R1M0). If the PTF is not found, no
                                   further action is required.

                                   If the PTF is in "Save file only" or "Not
                                   applied" status, issue the following
                                   command to delete it:
                                   DLTPTF PTF(MH01815) LICPGM(5733909)
                                   RLS(V1R1M0)

                                   MH01816 will upgrade the server to a FW930
                                   level without the location code changes.
                                   
                                   If you determine MH01815 is applied, there
                                   is no need to remove it.  You only need to
                                   load and apply MH01816.  After applying
                                   MH01816, and performing an IPL of the IBM
                                   i, you should remove the unneeded
                                   resources using the following steps:
                                   1. STRSST and sign in
                                   2. Option 1. Start a service tool
                                   3. Option 7. Hardware service manager
                                   4. Option 4.  Failed and non-reporting
                                   hardware resources
                                   5. Put a '4' (Remove) against the BCxx
                                   (Fabric I/O Bridge) resource that is
                                   listed, and then press Enter to remove,
                                   and Enter again to confirm the removal.

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: After applying the PTF, systems running
                                     certain workloads will experience perfor-
                                     mance degradation, including excessive
                                     paging in the main storage pools.

                   APAR NUMBER: SE63926

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: If you use Object type or Object attribute
                                     to subset the object list in WRKOBJPDM,
                                     the list will show the correct type or
                                     attribute objects. However, if you proceed
                                     to add in a "Position to"  request and
                                     select any object on the list to be
                                     deleted (Option 4), the delete
                                     confirmation panel will show a different
                                     object instead. If you continue to press
                                     Enter to execute, PDM will physically
                                     delete the object on the confirmation
                                     panel and not the object you intended to
                                     delete. The same scenario also occurs with
                                     Copy (Option 3), Rename (Option 7), and
                                     Move (Option 11) which will apply their
                                     specific action on the incorrect object.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply PTF SI59479 for i 7.2.

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users who do not
                                   already have PTF SI58138 applied.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: If these PTFs are applied with DELAYED(*NO)
                                     or DELAYED(*IMMDLY) while the system is
                                     not in restricted state, there is a PTF
                                     timing issue that can cause program
                                     QDMCOPEN to be corrupted.  Any attempt to
                                     open a file or device will then fail with
                                     messages CPF4182, CPF9845, or MCH4404.
                                     Users will not be able to sign on. If this
                                     occurs, the PTF cannot be removed because
                                     RMVPTF is dependent on QDMCOPEN and fails
                                     with the same error; the operating system
                                     must be slip installed to recover.
                   RECOMMENDATION: If you already have PTF SI58138 or PTF
                                   SI59096 applied, nothing needs to be done.
                                   Otherwise, install the fixing PTF SI59096
                                   for i 7.2 instead. If you plan to install
                                   cumulative package C5310720, be sure to
                                   fully apply the fixing PTF SI59096 before

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: If a system adapter (IOP/IOA) with attached
                                     tape resources is re-IPLed, the adapter
                                     may FUNCTION CHECK, and not all attached

                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA45160

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users previously
                                   encountering message CPI0909 and message
                                   CPI0902 during IPLs.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: The PTF contained algorithms to calculate
                                     the minimum amount of main store necessary
                                     for the machine pool. On certain systems,
                                     the minimum amount of main store
                                     calculated was too small. This resulted in
                                     a system hang during the IPL because the
                                     machine pool was out of memory.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply the fixing LIC PTF MF61176 for i 7.2.

                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770SS1
                   APAR NUMBER: SE63005

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i 7.2 operating system users with
                                   mirrored load sources.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: The system may hang with C6003962 during
                                     IPL processing if the load source is
                                     mirrored and one mirror subunit is
                                     suspended or failed.
                   RECOMMENDATION: If mirrored load sources are present,
                                   ensure that mirroring is Active prior to
                                   installing PTF MF99103. Apply the fixing
                                   PTF SI58108 to IBM i 7.2. Note that PTF
                                   SI58108 is a distribution requisite of PTF
                                   MF99103. If you have applied PTF MF99103
                                   to your system, you should apply the
                                   fixing PTF SI58108.

                                   defective PTF applied.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: The failure is limited to the use of the
                                     SET or VALUES INTO SQL statements and only
                                     appears in QRWTSRVR jobs being used by
                                     long-running DRDA connections. The most
                                     common symptoms are an MCH3601 message to
                                     service programs QSQRUN3 or QSQRUN2, or an
                                     MCH0601 message.  The MCH0601 message will
                                     reference the space QSQCURSORS.

                                   8286-41A, 8286-42A.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: IBM i stand-alone systems (non-HMC managed)
                                     upgrading from FW810 to FW830 firmware
                                     will encounter a long delay (up to 2
                                     hours). During this long upgrade, SRC
                                     D133C002 is posted on the operator panel.
                                     NO FURTHER ACTION is required during this
                                     time period.
                                     To avoid the extended delay during firmware
                                     upgrade please install MH01534 (FW810.31),
                                     upon availability, and IPL the system
                                     prior to installing any FW830 firmware
                                     PTF's.
                                     This notice does NOT apply to systems that
                                     are HMC managed, currently on FW830 or not
                                     using IBM i.
                   RECOMMENDATION: If you have already loaded AND applied
                                   MH01533, no further action is required.
                                   (This can be verified through DSPFMWSTS by
                                   checking the *ACTIVE firmware level. If
                                   "SV830_048 MH01533" is active, no further
                                   action is required.)
                                   Otherwise, perform the following IBM i
                                   command(s): DSPPTF LICPGM(5733908)
                                   SELECT(MH01533) RLS(V1R1M0)
                                   If the PTF is not found, no further action
                                   is required.
                                   If the PTF is in "Save file only" status,
                                   issue the following command to delete it:
                                   DLTPTF PTF(MH01533) LICPGM(5733908)
                                   RLS(V1R1M0)
                                   If the PTF is in "Not applied" or
                                   "Temporarily applied" status, issue the
                                   following commands to remove and delete
                                   it: RMVPTF LICPGM(5733908) RLS(V1R1M0)
                                   SELECT(MH01533) RMV(*PERM)

                   APAR NUMBER: SE60609

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: When using the System Snap function
                                     (SYSSNAP)of MGTOOLS to collect data and
                                     store it in the IFS, the tool creates a
                                     directory under /tmp to store the
                                     requested data. In very rare
                                     circumstances, the program will get an
                                     error and use /qibm as the IFS structure,
                                     resulting in the removal of the contents
                                     of that directory. It should be noted that
                                     only IBM Licensed Program Products use the
                                     /qibm directory, and there is no exposure
                                     to client data residing in the IFS in
                                     other directories.
                                     To avoid the unlikely occurrence of the
                                     SYSSNAP collection clearing data in the
                                     /qibm directory, use the OUTPUT parameter
                                     to store the output in a physical file
                                     (*PF) rather than the IFS (*IFS).
                                     In the unlikely event that this problem is

                                   MF58784 is included in cumulative PTF
                                   package C4276720.
    3. 22 May 2014 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MF58573 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA43784

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i 7.2 operating system users.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: An optical media formatted with file
                                     systems other than UDF will cause HFS and
                                     IFS file read operations to fail with
                                     message OPT1815. This may prevent optical
                                     devices from being used to install program
                                     fixes.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply the fixing LIC PTF MF58615 for i 7.2.

                                   MF58615 is included in cumulative PTF
                                   package C4276720.
    2. 22 May 2014 DEFECTIVE PTF:   MF58351 for IBM i 7.2
                   LICENSED PROGRAM = 5770999
                   APAR NUMBER: MA43763

                   USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i 7.2 operating system users with
                                   defective LIC PTF MF58351 applied.
                   REASON DEFECTIVE: Unloading a virtual optical volume using
                                     LODIMGCLGE OPTION(*UNLOAD) or LODIMGCLG
                                     OPTION(*UNLOAD) can leave a mutex lock on
                                     the IFS file containing the virtual
                                     volume. Subsequent operations may hang
                                     indefinitely. The hang may include
                                     PWRDWNSYS, and the recovery may require an
                                     HMC immediate power down to recover.
                   RECOMMENDATION: Apply the fixing LIC PTF MF58615 for i 7.2.

                                   MF58573 is included in cumulative PTF
                                   package C4276720.
