APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
Some tape drives have serial numbers where the right most seven
characters are of the form chhhhhh where c can not be converted
to a hex digit. This results in a SRC63A09210 PAL and a reported
serial number of all zeroes.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA43293' :
-------------------------------
The code was modified to convert a serial number of form chhhhhh
to a form of 0hhhhhh and not generate a SRC63A09210 PAL.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA43293' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions

This PTF will be automatically permanently applied.
This is a PTF for Tape IOP licensed internal code.  To fully activate
it all the devices associated with the IOP must be varied off, then
VARY ON one of them with a RESET(*YES).
If it is not possible to vary on with the RESET(*YES) option,
you must IPL the system to activate this PTF.

To activate this PTF for an IOP
that will allow VARY ON with RESET(*YES):

1.  Vary off all the devices attached to the IOP.
2.  Vary on one of the devices under the IOP using
VRYCFG CFGOBJ(The device) CFGTYPE(*DEV) RESET(*YES)
