Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that
use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,

APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
ADDCADMRE fails during CRTUSRPRF that is making use of exit
point
QIBM_QSY_CRT_PROFILE. A message of MSGMCH0601 can be seen in the
Admin Domain CRG joblog. Currently when user profiles contain
very few characters in a password (not a secure practice) this
can cause issues with the ADDCADMRE.

Work around: Ensure that user profiles create passwords that are
at least 6 characters in length.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE49441 :
-----------------------------
The admin domain code is comparing the password to a string.
When the password contains fewer characters than the string used
for the comparison, the MSGMCH0601 is signalled.  The admin
domain code will no longer compare the password to the string if
the password contains fewer characters.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE49441 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


In order to fix the problems described by this PTF, the PTF must be
applied on every node in the cluster. You do not have to end the
cluster to do this. However, you should end the CRG jobs associated
with the cluster administrative domain on every cluster node before you
apply the PTF. You can do this one node at a time.

Note, you must end the cluster administrative domain CRG jobs on each
cluster node, apply the PTF, and restart the CRG job before the fix is
available.

The cluster administrative domain CRG jobs will be ended if you end
Cluster Resource Services for each node in your cluster. Cluster
Resource Services can be ended using the End Cluster Node API or CL
command. Optionally, you can end just the cluster administrative domain
jobs without ending your cluster nodes by calling the Change
Cluster Recovery CL command.

To determine if any cluster administrative domain jobs are active on
your system, use the WRKACTJOB command from the command line of your
system. Look for any system jobs which have the same name as any
cluster administrative domains which you have created in your cluster.
If there are any cluster administrative domain jobs on your system,
they must be ended. You can end just the cluster administrative domain
jobs on every node with this command:

CHGCLURCY CLUSTER(<cluster>) CRG(<admin_domain>) NODE(*ALL)
ACTION(*END)

where <cluster> is the name of your cluster and <admin_domain> is the
name of a cluster administrative domain. You should call this command
once for each cluster administrative domain in your cluster.

You must sign off all sessions where any cluster administrative domain
commands or APIs were used before the PTF can be applied.

After the PTF has been applied on a system, you can restart the cluster
jobs that were ended before the PTF was applied. If Cluster Resource
Services was ended, you can use the Start Cluster Node API or CL
command to start Cluster Resource Services for each cluster node. If
you used the Change Cluster Recovery CL command to end just the cluster
administrative domain jobs, they can be restarted on each cluster node
using the Change Cluster Recovery command as follows:

CHGCLURCY CLUSTER(<cluster>) CRG(<admin_domain>) NODE(<node>)
ACTION(*STRCRGJOB)

where <cluster> is the name of your cluster, <admin_domain> is the name
of the cluster administrative domain, and <node> is the cluster node
name for the system. You should call this command once for each cluster
administrative domain in your cluster.

After the PTF has been applied, you should also restart the QPRFSYNCH
job on every node in your cluster.  You can restart the QPRFSYNCH job
with the following commands:

CALL PGM(QSYS/QFPAPRFJ) PARM(END)
CALL PGM(QSYS/QFPAPRFJ) PARM(START)
