Abstract

LIC-MEDIA-TAPE SUPPORT LARGER TIMEOUTS

Error Description

When drives are virtualized from an IBM i to another IBM i the  
maximum timeout value that can be passed is 65535 seconds but  
some tape devices require a larger timeout value for the erase  
command.                                                        

Problem Summary

When drives are virtualized from an IBM i to another IBM i the  
maximum timeout value that can be passed is 65535 seconds but  
some tape devices require a larger timeout value for the erase  
command.                                                        

Problem Conclusion

This change will increase the maximum allowed timeout value to  
be large enough to support the erase timeout values for the    
newer tape drives.
