APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
An issue may be seen for storage spaces created in V5R2 or
earlier releases that have been migrated to IBM i 6.1. This
issue appears as though the partition information on the disk is
not accessible and Windows Disk Management will report the disk
as Failed or Offline.


CORRECTION FOR APAR SE42220 :
-----------------------------
The problem occurs because calculations used to find the end of
a virtual disk was not including the last sector for these old
storage space objects.  Applying this PTF will modify the disk
length calculations and allow the entire virtual disk file to be
used.



If any alterations to the disk or volume have been made to cause
a new partition to be created, a restore from backup will be
required to return to the original state.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE42220 :

None.
