APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When using IBMVMCON to configure which integrated iSCSI ESX
servers to manage, the program ends unexpectedly while
retrieving configuration information from the ESX host.

A Windows popup occurs stating that IBMVMCON stopped working.


CORRECTION FOR APAR SE52040 :
-----------------------------
When IBMVMCON makes a connection, it will retrieve information
about the ESX server including the ESX version, build level,
server name, and domain information.  The problem occurs because
the length of the server name exceeds the coded maximum value of
15 characters.

Code has been modified to handle a longer server name.


CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE52040 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.
