Abstract

LIC-OTHER-UNPRED AUTHORIZATION LISTS COULD LOSE OWNERS DURING
IASP VARY ON.

Error Description

Full directory recovery could be triggered in rare circumstances
during vary on of an IASP, which will. usually tend result in  
a longer than normal vary on. It has been discovered that      
there is a chance that small segments might be discarded        
during full directory recovery and those segments could have    
association with user profiles or authorization lists which    
could ultimately lead to other clean up elements to be          
triggered as part of IASP vary on code. Those clean up          
elements may end up with profiles being deleted or recreated    
generically and losing authorities or authorization lists      
losing their owners.                                            
                                                               
Code will be enhanced to protect the integrity of user profiles
and authorization lists and avoid such occurrences during      
directory recovery.                                            
                                                               
Work around: An IPL of the partition may be needed, follow by a
vary of the IASP and then attempt to identify which authorities
have been lost and manually grant the authorities back as      
desired. The resulting PTF will not fix the authority issue if  
it has already been encountered, it will only prevent the issue
after it has been applied.                                      

Problem Summary

Please see the ERROR DESCRIPTION section.                      

Problem Conclusion

The segments will no longer be discarded.
