APAR Error Description / Circumvention
Need to allow N-2 cluster version support back to V5R4, and
provide ability to allow N-3 cluster version support in future
CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE46365' :
Allow N-2 cluster version support back to V5R4, and provides
ability to allow N-3 cluster version support in future releases.
CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE46365' :
End clustering on a node, apply the fix, then re-start clustering on
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI41516:
On each node in the cluster, end clustering, apply the fix, and then
start clustering. It is not necessary to update all nodes at the same
time, however, any node without the fix will continue to be a potential
source of the problem.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI42199:
In order to fix the problems described by this PTF on all nodes in the
cluster, the PTF must be applied on all nodes in the cluster.
However,the entire cluster does not have to be ended to do this. One
node at a time can be ended, the PTF applied, and the node restarted to
join the cluster.
Note, you must end Cluster Resource Services on the node, apply the
PTF,and then restart Cluster Resource Services before the fix is
To determine if Cluster Resource Services is active on your system, do
a WRKACTJOB from the command line of your system and look for two
system jobs (QCSTCTL and QCSTCRGM). If either of these jobs exist,
Cluster Resource Services must be ended on this system and you must
sign off all sessions where Cluster Resource Services APIs were used
before the PTF can be applied. Cluster Resource Services is started
through the Start Cluster Node API.
THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
