Abstract

attached disk in an Independent ASP.

*                 Id Virtualization (NPIV) users for i 6.1.1   *
*                 and i 7.1.                                   *

IBM i virtual Fibre Channel client partition crashes with      
SRCB6000103 during a reipl of the 6B25 virtual Fibre Channel    
adapter IOP. The IOP reipl is performed after a disk unit      
attached to the 6B25 adapter and configured in an Independent  
ASP is the target of a flash copy operation and switched over to
the client partition while the partition is active.            

Problem Conclusion

                                                               
                                                               
If the client partition is active when the flash copy is        
performed for the first time, the partition will attempt to    
create a different disk resource for the target disk when the  
IOP is first reipled after that. In the process of switching    
from the old resource to the new resource, an exception occurs  
which terminates the partition.                                
                                                               
Licensed Internal Code will change to avoid the exception when  
switching from the old to new disk resource.

target disk while the target client partition is not active.
