APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
When the system has been up to the OS and DST is entered by
using the Op panel function 21 and then the system is IPLed, the
LIC doesn't have a chance to clean up pointers in the console
device description (*DEVD) DSP01 and the controller description
(*CTLD) CTL01 objects.
So during the IPL the LIC finds the invalid pointers and marks
the DSPO1 and CTL01 objects as damaged.
A LIC log 0300 0110 will occur.
The system may report a SRCA9002000

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA42579' :
-------------------------------
The LIC was changed on how the DSP01 and CTL01 objects are used
during DST so that the system could be IPLed and not cause
damaged objects.
The PTF prevents future damage from occurring but does not fix
up the existing objects.
If the objects are already damaged, the customer may need to
work with service to get the objects deleted.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA42579' :
----------------------------------
Forcing DST (Op panel function 21) should be used with caution.

In most cases exiting DST before IPLing the partition will
prevent the problem.

If a IPL is needed immediately after exiting DST, the normal
power down (pwrdwnsys) should be used and a Op panel or HMC IPL
should be avoided.
