Abstract

LIC-MEDIA-OPT-MSGOPT1360 Volumes with *HPOFS file system

Error Description

When a *PWORM or *ERASE media from an earlier i release are    
moved to v7r2, none of the data can be accessed. Lic Logs may be
created, including 3A00 1000, and 3A00 1005, and operations to  
the library report errors, the most common being OPT1360 Media  
directory corrupted.

Problem Conclusion

There is a LIC error in the base IBM i 7.2 code that changed the
expected location of data on the media. Apply this fix to      
correct the file system processing and the data on *HPOFS media
from earlier releases may be accessed.  Warning: When this PTF  
is applied, any media that was initialized on v7r2 with INZOPT  
MEDFMT(*HPOFS), or with INZOPT MEDFMT(*MEDTYPE) when the media  
type is *WORM or *ERASE will not be usable after this PTF is    
applied.  Files should be copied off of the *HPOFS media before
applying this PTF.
