LIMITATIONS AND KNOWN PROBLEMS FOR VERSION 9.3.0
================================================

Authority required to login to the web management interface

-------------------------------------------------------------

The new web management interface in 9.3.0 requires that users be granted read authority to some system resources that was not required for previous firmware versions. Users who have a highly restrictive access profile in RBM might encounter problems logging in to the UI until a fix for APAR IT41621 is available.

Encrypted file system performance
---------------------------------------

There is a larger than expected performance impact for queue managers that are configured to use an encrypted file system. Customers who have adopted encrypted file systems with the 9.2.5 firmware might observe a performance degradation upon migration to 9.3.0. This issue is being investigated by IBM under APAR IT41622.

LIMITATIONS AND KNOWN PROBLEMS FOR VERSION 9.3.1
================================================

No new issues. The 9.3.0 issues still apply.
