APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The expected message - MSGOPT1791 with reason code 03 - is not
always sent when an IPL capable optical container volume in a
child virtual device can not be used because files on the
physical optical media have been changed since the last vary on.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE67783 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix so that the correct error message - OPT1791 with
reason code 03 - will be displayed.  To recover from this error
it is necessary to vary off the child virtual device, vary
off/on the physical optical device, then vary on the child
virtual device.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE67783 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR SE67772 :
-----------------------------------------------
When DUPOPT with TOVOL(*BOOT) and NEWVOL(*FROMVOL) is used to
duplicate IPL capable optical media the operation fails with
MSGOPT1790 (Operation not allowed or conflicts with another
request) and reason code 6.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE67772 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix to enable duplicating IPL capable optical media
where the new volume name is going to be the same as the from
volume name after the duplicate completes.  This support is only
available when the end of media option parameters are set to
FROMENDOPT(*UNLOAD) and TOENDOPT(*LEAVE).  If the TOENDOPT
parameter is set to *UNLOAD the DUPOPT command will still fail
with message OPT1790 but with a new reason code 10 indicating
that TOVOL(*BOOT)and NEWVOL(*FROMVOL)with TOENDOPT(*UNLOAD) is
not supported.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE67772 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


After this fix is applied message OPT1790 (Operation not allowed or
conflicts with another request) may return a new reason code, reason
code 10.

Message OPT1790 with reason code 10 will be sent when a DUPOPT command
is requested with the following parameters:  TOVOL(*BOOT),
NEWVOL(*FROMVOL), and TOENDOPT(*UNLOAD) to indicate that this
combination of parameters is not supported.
The recovery for message OPT1790 with reason code 10 is to retry the
request with the end  of media option parameters set to
FROMENDOPT(*UNLOAD) and TOENDOPT(*LEAVE).

********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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 SI57188 :
=================================================

After this PTF is applied the DUPOPT command can be used to duplicate
an IPL capable DVD or distributed media image to RDX or Flash media.

Specifying a value of *BOOT for the To Volume parameter on the DUPOPT
command indicates that the boot area and all files from the source
media are to be copied to the mounted target media. The copy is done
even if the physical characteristics of the target optical volume do
not match the physical characteristics of the source optical volume.

The following example of the DUPOPT command shows how to copy IPL
capable media that is mounted in a DVD device that is named OPT01
to RDX media that is already initialized and mounted in device RMS01.

DUPOPT FROMVOL(*MOUNTED) TOVOL(*BOOT) CLEAR(*YES) FROMDEV(OPT01)
TODEV(RMS01)

The command in this example duplicates the mounted optical volume in
device OPT01 to the mounted optical volume in device RMS01. The optical
volume in device RMS01 is initialized before the duplication process.
The volume in device RMS01 will be IPL capable after the duplication
process completes.

Note: The special value of *BOOT is only valid when the source volume
contains IPL capable media.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
