Abstract

LIC-MEDIA-OPT INSTALL FROM DST WHEN IPL CAPABLE *CONTAINER LOAD
SOURCE

Error Description

When the machine is at DST and the install media is type        
*CONTAINER, activating the hardware driver incorrectly makes the
LIC media visible before the hardware driver is instructed to  
add the media. This prevents the DST code from correctly        
switching to the OS media to load the XPF install code.        

Problem Summary

When the machine is at DST and the install media is type        
*CONTAINER, activating the hardware driver incorrectly makes the
LIC media visible before the hardware driver is instructed to  
add the media. This prevents the DST code from correctly        
switching to the OS media to load the operating system install  
code.                                                          

Problem Conclusion

Apply this fix to prevent the D-Mode media from being made      
visible to the machine before the hardware driver is instructed
to add the media.
