NOTICE:

Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that
use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to limit
interactive capacity to purchased levels.  This PTF may be a prerequisite
for future PTFs.  By applying this PTF you authorize and agree to the
foregoing.

This PTF is subject to the terms of the 'IBM License Agreement for Machine

REGARDING THE PTF.





APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Starting the system from an alternate IPL device using SAVSYS
media created when the superseded PTF was permanently applied
may fail with SRC B6005121.

Additionally, if a tape library with an invalid serial number
reports in, it may not configure correctly.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA50290 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix permanently to prevent the failure. Recommend
creating new SAVSYS media.

If a tape library reports an invalid serial number, a PAL with
reference code 94293202 will be logged, the library model will
report as 400,  and the serial number will be reported using
alphanumeric serial number format.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA50290 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


This fix needs to be permanently applied and a new SAVSYS media created
for the fix for the D-IPL from tape problem to be effective.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
