APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When upgrading a partition from V5R4M0 to V5R4M5 all IOP based
Wide Area Network (WAN) I/O Adapters (IOAs) show up as
inoperational.  Associated with this error are the following
Product Activity Logs (PALs):

284xB935
B0061305

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA38780 :
-----------------------------
This problem is a result of a Socket Modem Firmware download
being interrupted before it completed.  Once this occurs, the
next adpater reset will cause the code to improperly detect the
correct internal modem.  When this occurs, a code problem exists
where an invalid address is used to download the Socket Modem
Firmware.

When the download fails, the adapter is marked inoperational.

To fix this problem, the code to detect the modem and download
the proper firmware will be changed to detect the correct
internal modem using a different method, if the current modem is
unreadable.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA38780 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA38897 :
-----------------------------------------------
When PTF MF48623 is applied to resolve Internal modem port of a
2793 PCI 2-Line WAN with Modem with IOP failure or a 4-Line WAN
2805 Modem internal ports with IOP, the 2742 PCI Two-Line WAN
IOA ports with IOP may fail. No message or SRC maybe reported.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA38897 :
-----------------------------
This PTF fixes an intermittent problem seen in a prior PTF.  The
code will be changed to account for an uninitialized return
code.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA38897 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


To recover a failed communications adapter as described by this PTF, an
IPL is required after this PTF has been applied.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
