APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If an Ethernet port of type 5706 or 5707 is active, and the
other port on the same card is varied on, but then varied off
while still vary on pending (which will take at least a minute
if the cable is not plugged in), the working port will stop
receiving interrupts.

This will affect traffic, and will eventually lead to a Product
Activity Log entry with SRC B025A6D9, and the line description
failing.  This can be recovered by varying off the
previously-working port and varying it back on.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA40747 :
-----------------------------
Licensed internal code has been changed to ensure that one port
cannot disable interrupts on the other port.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA40747 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


None.


Default Instructions

THIS IS A DELAYED PTF TO BE APPLIED AT IPL TIME.
