APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
There are two ASPs in the ASP group: a primary and a secondary.
A PWRDWNSYS is issued on system A. This initiates a failover.
System B is upgraded to production and the IASP is varied on.
The signature for the primary IASP is updated during the varyon
attempt. The varyon for the production fails. The signature for
the seconary IASP is not updated. When a varyon is attempted
again for the primary IASP, a MSGCPFB716 RC2 is issued. The
error occurs because the primary and secondary IASP have
different signatures.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA35889 :
-----------------------------
The system licensed internal code is changed to correct the
problem.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA35889 :
--------------------------------
There are a couple of different circumvention options.

1.  Instead of using a primary + secondary IASP, consolidate
your data into a single primary IASP.
2.  If you do wish to keep the ASP group intact (primary +
secondary IASP), then disable automatic varyon on switchover.
If a failover occurs, manually suspend geographic mirroring for
all IASPs in the group, then perform a manual varyon of the ASP
group.
