APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
A customer was trying to create copies of load source drives on
NWSSTG (network server storage) for a client IBM i partition.
This failed with msgcpda4c5 'Error copying network server
storage space.  Reason code 4; The size of the network server
storage space being created cannot exceed 0 megabytes.'  They
tried to use command CRTNWSSTG with size(*CALC) and also
specifying a valid size. The source network server storage space
size was 700000 megabytes.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE45585 :
-----------------------------
An issue was identified copying storage spaces that are greater
than 512GB in size which results in the size allowed being set
to 0.  This error is resolved by applying the PTF.


CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE45585 :
--------------------------------
None.
