APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Access paths are inconsistent with the files over which they are
built. This can surface as a problem with DB XREF files and/or a
QDBSRVXR job looping.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA40456 :
-----------------------------
A unique alter table operation to a file that has explicitly
journaled access paths over it can cause the access path to no
longer be journaled correctly. If a crash occurs where main
storage is not preserved and one of these access paths is
exposed, recovery of the access path may not be correct.

This PTF looks for situations where this may have occurred. The
problem is logged and/or corrected as appropriate.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA40456 :
--------------------------------
None.
