APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
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.

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THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF MF68496 :
=================================================

If a SRC94299903 PAL is logged, with a secondary code of 000000C5, it
is because during device identification the device driver found the HRI
had a library identifier that was invalid, and changed it to valid.
Depending on the HRI for all tape libraries, a different resource name
may assigned to the resource being identified.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
