APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The first MSD after a new system install fails with Data
transfer error.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA41920' :
-------------------------------
The MSD Control Segment (MsdCtlSid) is used to communicate to
the Virtual Service Processor (VSP) how much and where the
initial main store (MS) data and hardware page table (HPT) data
should be stored by the VSP during the MSD IPL. The LIC code is
not properly setting the storage location which causes the MS
data to be overlaid with the HPT data. The MS corruption causes
the MSD copy to the system ASP to fail with Data transfer error.

The LIC will be changed to set the storage location correctly in
the MsdCtlSid.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA41920' :
----------------------------------
None.
