APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
During a backup, ASP balancing was being performed to balance
new disks. Some of the data was flagged as preferring to be on
Solid State Drives (SSDs). The save preparation called database
function to move the data to the SSDs first. The move waits on
the ASP gate held by the ASP balancing. The gate is not released
until the ASP balancing completes. The solution is to return a
Move in Progress response, which Database handles. This can
affect systems that do not have SSDs, as long as the data has
the media preference for SSDs set. Service Keywords:

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA40894 :
-----------------------------
The code is changed to return a Move In Progress response for
this condition.
