Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI46918 :
=================================================

The recommended way to defer spooled file conversions during an upgrade
is to set the QSPL/QSPLDFRCVN data area value to '1'.

To prevent the converted spooled files from being detached when using
the QSPLDFRCVN data area with a value of '0', this PTF must be applied
to your system prior to creating your install media, or it must be
loaded and applied to the system before the system comes out of
restricted state.

Unless the PTF is applied to your install media, you must perform the
install with the key switch set to "D MANUAL" and at the IPL Options
screen after the first sign-on make sure to change the "Start system to
restricted state" value to 'Y', otherwise QSPRC00001 may remove all the
previous-version job table entries (detach their spooled files) before
you have an opportunity to load and apply the PTF.  If you perform an
auto install, the controlling subsystem will start automatically during
the licensed program install step and QSPRC00001 will remove the jobs
before you can apply the PTF.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI46162 :
=================================================

To enable the Spool Initialization IPL flight recorder, create the
following data area:
> CRTDTAARA QSPL/QSPLDTAARA TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(3) VALUE(NYN) AUT(*USE)

If the data area already exists, change its second character to 'Y':
> CHGDTAARA DTAARA(QSPL/QSPLDTAARA (2 1)) VALUE(Y)

To disable the flight recorder, change the data area second position
to a character other than 'Y'
> CHGDTAARA DTAARA(QSPL/QSPLDTAARA (2 1)) VALUE(N)

When requested by IBM Service, the flight data can be collected using
the command:
> DMPSYSOBJ OBJ(QSPFLGHTRC) CONTEXT(QSPL)


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
