APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If a bus failure occurs during a vary on of a tape device or
tape library the vary on may go into a long wait and cause other
jobs to wait.

A vary on of a drive in a library in sequential mode fails with
MSGCPD2616 RC3404 if it was previously attached in random mode
during the current IPL of the LPAR.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA48052 :
-----------------------------
The code has been changed to prevent this long wait.

The code has been changed to allow a drive that was in random
mode to be varied on after the tape library has been switched to
sequential mode.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA48052 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


None.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
