APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
Authorization List extensions that were created (in an IASP)
before v7r4m0 may be marked damaged the first time the IASP is
varied online by a partition running v7r4m0, causing objects in
the IASP to lose their authorization list.

Damage is most likely if the the IASP did not complete normal
vary-off processing in its last use before vary-on by a
partition running v7r4m0.  Damage is unlikely after the first
successful IASP vary-on by a partition running v7r4m0.

Authorization List extensions created before v7r4m0
(incorrectly) charged storage to a user profile.  LIC coherence
checks added to v7r4m0 throw an exception that damages an old
Authorization List extension if the object is extended too early
in IASP vary-on processing.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA48448' :
-------------------------------
LIC processing for IASP vary-on is changed to update
Authorization List extensions (to not charge a user profile for
storage) before the objects can be extended

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA48448' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions

None.




Special Instructions

This fix takes effect during IASP vary on processing. For any IASPs
that are currently varied on and have been upgraded from a previous
release, it is recommended to perform a vary off and vary on again to
ensure that the fix fully takes effect.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
