    The customer does the following scenario with FLASHCOPY commands
    and ends up receiving error message HCPNFC2459E:
    -
    flashcopy withdraw target 701 force
    RELATIONSHIP WITHDRAWN
    READY; T=0.01/0.01 14:50:41
    -
    flashcopy withdraw target 700 force
    RELATIONSHIP WITHDRAWN
    READY; T=0.01/0.01 14:50:57
    -
    flashcopy 700 0 end to 701 0 end savelabel
    HCPNFC2459E UNABLE TO READ OR VERIFY THE CURRENT VOLUME LABEL ON
    0701.
    READY(02459); T=0.01/0.01 14:51:18
    -
    Due to the FLASHCOPY WITHDRAW commands the device ends up in a
    long busy wait condition and the subsequent label read issued
    for the FLASHCOPY SAVELABEL command fails because it does not
    wait for the long busy condition to end.
    

Problem conclusion

  • FLASHCOPY SAVELABEL command processing was modified to allow the
    READ LABEL CCW to wait for any device busy condition to end so
    it can complete successfully.
