APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When varying on an NWSD using the *STMF value for the IPLSRC
keyword, the guest partition boot hangs while starting the
operating system software. A VL4E000009 entry is logged in the
Licensed Internal Code log of the IBM i server partition when
the hang occurs.

When attempting to vary off this NWSD, another VL4E000009 is
logged and the vary off request hangs until the NWSD shutdown
timeout (SHUTDTIMO keyword) expires. A VL4E00A03C entry is
logged in the Licensed Internal Code log when the timeout
expires, and the 290B CTLxx resource associated with the NWSD
then becomes unusable.

Subsequent attempts to vary on this NWSD will fail with
MSGCPDB1AD RC15. Varying on after deleting and recreating the
NWSD, or attempting to vary on using a different NWSD with the
same 290B CTLxx resource name will fail with MSGCPDB1AD RC4.

The IBM i server partition has to be reipled to recover the
unusable CTLxx resource.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA42569 :
-----------------------------
Licensed Internal Code will change to process the IPLSRC(*STMF)
device correctly.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA42569 :
--------------------------------
None.
