Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF MF49235 :
=================================================

If a ProtecTIER drive is going to be used for an alternate IPL device
(D-mode), there can only be one drive visible on the adapter as the
alternate restart device.  ProtecTIER LUN masking may be used to
satisfy this requirement.
If any VIOS partition is connected to the ProtecTIER on the SAN, the
ProtecTIER must be removed from the zone prior to initiating a reboot
of the ProtecTIER.  Failure to follow this restriction will cause
errors to occur on other devices attached to the same NPIV port that
may be disruptive.
The maximum number of drives in the IBM i logical library (ie the
TAPMLBxx) remains 32.  Stated another way, the maximum drives visible
to the IBM i system or LPAR in one virtual library is 32.
The maximum number of elements (storage slots plus drives plus import
export elements) that may be configured in one virtual library is 5000.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
