APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Served optical media must be changed manually for client
partition installs.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE43862 :
-----------------------------
This fix provides embedded media changer support which extends
the automatic media switching capability of virtual optical
device type 632B on virtual I/O
server partitions to client partitions virtual optical device
type 632C. One application of this new function is the use of
image catalogs for unattended installs of client partitions.
This switching capability also allows users to manually switch
media in a client virtual optical device without requiring
authority to the serving partition.  This is accomplished via
the image catalog WRKIMGCLGE *DEV and LODIMGCLGE *DEV command
interfaces on the client partition.
