APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If a Virtual Fibre Channel attached tape device that has
multiple Fibre Channel connections to a single VFC client
adapter has a path failure that results in a failover to one of
the redundant paths on the same adapter, the client adapter will
attempt to create a new tape device resource instead of reusing
the existing resource.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA44939 :
-----------------------------
The VFC client adapter will use the Fibre Channel Node ID to
identify tape devices so that a redundant path failover will
find and reuse the existing tape device resource.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA44939 :
--------------------------------
None.
