APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
A 9210 PAL may occur when switching volume for a tape library in
sequential mode.

Drives in a virtual tape library with no robot may not configure
properly.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA47758 :
-----------------------------
The tape device driver was not waiting long enough for the next
volume to become ready.

The tape device driver was not properly handling drives with no
robot for virtual tape libraries.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA47758 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA47757 :
-----------------------------------------------
A 9210 PAL may get logged if a drive in sequential mode requires
cleaning and the tape library does an automatic cleaning between
the unloading of a cartridge in the drive and the loading of the
next cartridge.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA47757 :
-----------------------------
The tape device driver was not waiting long enough to allow the
automatic cleaning to complete so it was logging a 9210 PAL. The
code has been changed to allow more time for the cleaning to
complete.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA47757 :
--------------------------------
None.
