APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If LUN masking is used to control which virtual drives are seen
by multiple adapter ports on a single partition, the LIC code
may incorrectly identify two unique drives as multiple paths to
the same target.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA45252 :
-----------------------------
Apply this PTF to properly identify unique targets in ProtecTier
when LUN masking is used.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA45252 :
--------------------------------
None.
