APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The INSINTSVR command needs to add value *ESXII4 to the OSTYPE
parameter for support of VMware ESXi Installable 4 on iSCSI
integrated servers.

Prevent abnormal shutdown of VMware ESX servers.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE46590 :
-----------------------------
The INSINTSVR command has been modified to add the *ESXII4 value
to the OSTYPE parameter for support of VMware ESXi Installable 4
on iSCSI integrated servers.

The Serviceability options (SRVOPT) parameter of NWSD command
(CRTNWSD or CHGNWSD) will be set to 'OSSHUTDWN=3' for all of the
VMware ESX Servers.  This will eliminate the users requirement
to use CHGNWSD command to make this parameter change after the
install of server. It will prevent the abnormal shut down of
VMware ESX servers for new installed servers.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE46590 :
