APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
After an IPL, the ports on a CCIN 57D4 WAN card have a status of
Inoperative.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA44952 :
-----------------------------
There is an error in the internal tests that are run at IPL time
to verify that the hardware on the 57D4 card is functioning
correctly. The data used in the test to verify that the card can
transmit and receive data is not initialized correctly, causing
the card to be set to an inoperative status, even though the
card is functioning correctly. This fix corrects the
initialization of the data used in the test to verify that the
card can transmit and receive data correctly. This allows the
test to complete successfully and the ports on the card to be
set to a status of Operational.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA44952 :
--------------------------------
Use option 7 "Hardware service manager" in the System Service
Tools (SST) to IPL the virtual IOP associated with the 57D4
card.
