NOTICE:

Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that
use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to limit
interactive capacity to purchased levels.  This PTF may be a prerequisite
for future PTFs.  By applying this PTF you authorize and agree to the
foregoing.

This PTF is subject to the terms of the license agreement which
accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for which you are obtaining
the PTF.  You are not authorized to install or use the PTF except as part
of a Program for which you have a valid Proof of Entitlement.

APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
A printer device is created that is *LAN 3812 printer using the
*HPPJLDRV or *IBMPJLDRV system driver program. The *DEVD lists
the remote location of the printer as a DNS name. If the DNS
server fails and you cannot ping the DNS name, the printer
writers will fail with unhelpful message MSGCPF3CF1.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE44578' :
-------------------------------
The system driver program was not initializing the Error Code
parameter before calling the QMHSNDPM application programming
interface (API) to send message CPD338A or CPD338B after a
socket error.  It is just an intermittant problem, but once it
fails it may continue to fail every time you start the writer.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE44578' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




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 should first end all writers or
end the QSPL subsystem.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI35957 :
=================================================

To enable much better performance when printing page ranges of very
large DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) spooled files to network printers using
SYSDRVPGM(*IBMPJLDRV) or *HPPJLDRV or *IBMSNMPDRV, add
USRDFNOPT(*IBMNOMNT) to the printer device description.  The option
will take effect next time a writer is started to the printer.

With this option, you will lose the ability to print duplex or select
the printer output bin when starting an *AFPDS spooled file on a page
other than 1 (see APAR SE10006) so a good way to implement this change
is to create a copy of your existing printer device description, so two
device descriptions reference ths same network printer, and only set
the new *IBMNOMNT option on one of the devices.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
