Local fix

Problem summary

  • Method error (/etc/methods/ucfgdevice):
    0514-076 Cannot perform the requested function because the
    specified paths include all paths for the device.
    and rmpath error within "Remove Paths under a Parent" SMIT
    menu.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Add two additional 'shift' commands to account for the
    increased number of lspath fields being displayed in the
    MPIO remove path discovery.
