APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
An application is using the transform manager feature of
Infoprint Server. This software, within the same job, will call
the transform to convert PDF data to AFPDS. As they convert each
file, they write the AFPDS to the same, open, printer file.
This, to create one large spooled file with all the PDF data in
it. However, if it tries to convert more than approximately 3500
PDF files, the job will fail with MSGIPS2211 F/QXTRCLIENT
T/QIMGAIPT.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE55858' :
-------------------------------
Infoprint Server's transform manager creates profile handles
each time it mustperform an action that requires the swapping of
user profiles but the profile handles are not released. By not
releasing profile handles there exists the possibility that the
maximum number of allowed created profile handles in
a job gets reached. When the maximum is reached transform
manager is unable to perform necessary operations. The code is
updated to release profile handles as necessary.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE55858' :
----------------------------------
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 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THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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.
