Abstract

LIC-SRCB6000103 WHEN CLIENT VIRTUAL FIBER CHANNEL IOP IS RESET

Error Description

Problem Summary

****************************************************************
* PROBLEM: (MA41273) Licensed Program = 5761999 for i 6.1.1    *

****************************************************************
* USERS AFFECTED: All IBM i operating system N-Port            *
*                 Id Virtualization (NPIV) users for i 6.1.1   *
*                 and i 7.1.                                   *

****************************************************************
An IBM i partition containing a 6B25 virtual Fibre Channel      
adapter may terminate with system reference code B6000103 if the
corresponding 6B25 virtual IOP is reset.                        

Problem Conclusion

                                                               
A timing condition may cause a request being sent while the IOP
reset is in progress to encounter an unexpected state          
transition. Licensed Internal Code will change to not generate  
an exception under these circumstances.
