APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
A SAS attached TS4300 tape library (D/T3555) will not configure
properly. The tape library resource will configure (after a
timeout) with no associated tape device resources and the tape
device resources will configure as stand-alone tape devices.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA48795' :
-------------------------------
A problem was introduced that prevented the tape library
resource from identifying which tape drives are attached to it.
The problem has been fixed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA48795' :
----------------------------------
None.
