APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Client using iSeries Access for Windows SI44594 - operations
console (OOCON), LAN attached. On a initialize Load Source(LS)
DASD the OPCON configuration doesn't exist so it is set via the
Operator panel using the Console recovery functions (65+21).
After a console is connected, the user selects the load source
disk and then takes the option to install licensed internal code
and initialize system. The system appears to install LIC without
error.

Then the system ipls up on A side and shows SRC A6005008. On the
PC, the console goes to reconnecting. The OPCON configuration
doesn't appear to get written to the load source.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA42055 :
-----------------------------
Because of the initialized DASD not all fields in the LS DASD on
page 2 are built correctly. The configuration is saved but on
the A-side IPL the missing fields cause the OPCON configuration
to be discarded so that the Console recovery functions (65+21)
need to be repeated.

The LIC was changed to correctly initialize the LS DASD page 2
during the D-mode IPL so that the configuration is valid on the
first A-side IPL.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA42055 :

None.
