APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If a system that has tape library resources with a library
identifier (LIBID) of zero is the source system for a Full
System Flash Copy and the tape drives attached to the target
system do not have the same serial numbers as on the source
system the drives may not configure properly.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA48936 :
-----------------------------
The code has been changed to fix the zero LIBID so the drives
will configure properly.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA48936 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA48902 :
-----------------------------------------------
The same tape logical library partition with the same drive
types may have multiple library identifiers.
The hardware resource information may be incorrect causing
problems with tape library configurations.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA48902 :
-----------------------------
This fix will:
1) prevent the same tape logical library partition with the same
drive type from having multiple library identifiers.
2) detect a library identifier with mixed drive types and log a
SRC94299903 informational PAL with secondary code 000000C6.
3) detect a drive changing from a stand-alone drive to a drive
in a tape library and log a SRC94299903 informational PAL with
secondary code 000000C7.
4) detect a drive changing from being in a tape library to a
stand-alone drive and log a SRC94299903 informational PAL with
secondary code 000000C8.
5) detect a tape library that has no drives attached and will
log a SRC94299903 informational PAL with secondary code 000000C9
and not report in.
6) detect a tape logical library with the same drive type but
different library identifiers and log a SRC94299903
informational PAL with secondary code 000000CA.
7) detect a tape library resource that will not have tape drives
in it that will report in because of some error. It will log a
SRC94299903 informational PAL with secondary code 000000CB and
not report in.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA48902 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA48968 :
-----------------------------------------------
The fix for MA48936 requires additional parts because of
interface changes.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA48968 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix with as required by it's requisite.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA48968 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA48981 :
-----------------------------------------------
The library identifier value for non-IBM attached library
changes when the partition or adapter is IPLed. This may cause
the resource name to change on a partition or adapter IPL.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA48981 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix to keep the library identifier from changing when
the partition or adapter is IPLed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA48981 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF MF65656 :
=================================================

This is a PTF for the tape device driver.  To fully activate
it all the IOPs with a tape device attached must be varied off,
then VARY ON one of them for each IOP, with tape devices
attached, with a RESET(*YES).
If it is not possible to vary on with the RESET(*YES) option,
you must IPL the system to activate this PTF.

To activate this PTF for an IOP
that will allow VARY ON with RESET(*YES):

1.  Vary off all tape devices attached to the IOP.
2.  Vary on one of the devices under the IOP using:

VRYCFG CFGOBJ(The device) CFGTYPE(*DEV) RESET(*YES)

and other parameters as would normally be done.
3.  Vary on all of the other devices normally.

The system can still run without fully activating this PTF but
the problem being fixed may still occur until the fix is fully
activated.

If a ProtecTIER drive is going to be used for an alternate IPL device
(D-mode), there can only be one drive visible on the adapter as the
alternate restart device.  ProtecTIER LUN masking may be used to
satisfy this requirement.
If any VIOS partition is connected to the ProtecTIER on the SAN, the
ProtecTIER must be removed from the zone prior to initiating a reboot
of the ProtecTIER.  Failure to follow this restriction will cause
errors to occur on other devices attached to the same NPIV port that
may be disruptive.
The maximum number of drives in the IBM i logical library (ie the
TAPMLBxx) remains 32.  Stated another way, the maximum drives visible
to the IBM i system or LPAR in one virtual library is 32.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
