Special Instructions


If this PTF is applied or removed as a "Delayed" PTF, which requires
an IPL, no special consideration is necessary. If this PTF is applied
or removed "Immediate", you must first end all of the PSF writers that
are using Transform Manager or end the QSPL subsystem and end
Transform Manager, ENDTFMMGR. When Transform Manager is
started again, STRTFMMGR, the PTF code will be active.

********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI55227 :
=================================================

If this PTF is applied or removed as a "Delayed" PTF, which
requires an IPL, no special consideration is necessary. If
this PTF is applied or removed "Immediate", you must
- End the IBM Infoprint Server Transform Manager using the
ENDTFMMGR command.
- End all of the PSF writers or end the QSPL subsystem.
- End all programs running in batch or interactive jobs
that are using the Convert Image (QIMGCVTI, QimgCvtImg) API.

If this PTF is installed on V6R1 or later the program object
shipped in this PTF will be converted by the operating system the first
time the updated program is executed. This can cause a delay in
starting the writer such that the writer may terminate due to a
timeout. One way to avoid this is to execute the following command
after installing the PTF:
STROBJCVN OPTION(*CONVERT) LIB(QIPS) OBJTYPE(*ALLPGM).
This will cause the program object to be converted.
MSGCPIB0DC can be ignored.

or removed "Immediate", you must first end all of the PSF writers that
are using Transform Manager or end the QSPL subsystem and end
Transform Manager, ENDTFMMGR. When Transform Manager is started again,
