APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
When restoring a network server storage space that was created
prior to V4R4 to system running V6R1 or later release causes the
restore to fail with error message CPF383A error summary code
X'C4C7'.
================================

From module . . . : QSRIOREQ

From procedure  . :

IO_Feedback_TPv

Statement   . . . :   311

Message . . . . :   Save or restore ended unsuccessfully.

Cause . . . . . :   The save or restore request ended because
of an
unexpected error. If the error occurred on a specific object,
the
object is /QFPNWSSTG/STGNAME.
Recovery . . . :   Save the information created by the message
and
report the problem (ANZPRB command).

Technical description . . . . .  . . : Error summary code
X'C4C7'.
Device dependent error code X'0000'.

================================

The issue occurs because a storage space created prior to V4R4
uses a file system format named Type-1 BSF (Byte Stream Files).
Starting in V6R1, the restore storage space object handler will
pre-create the storage space being restored using only Type-2
BSF which causes an issue when the Type-1 BSF data is being
written over the pre-created Type-2 BSF storage space.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE52449' :
-------------------------------
The restore object handler will only pre-create a storage space
using Type-2 BSF, so the storage space must be created using
Type-1 BSF before using the RST command.

The PTF associated with this APAR provides a new method to the
serviceability program "QFPHPSF" which will allow a storage
space to be pre-created using Type-1 BSF.  The process to
manually pre-create the storage space and restore from backup is
as follows.
Note:  The storage space name "STGNAME" should be replaced with
the actual storage space name.

1.Delete the incorrect network storage left by the restore
failure.
RMVDIR '/QFPNWSSTG/STGNAME' SUBTREE(*ALL)

2.Call the QFPHPSF serviceability program to pre-create a
storage space with Type-1 stream files.
CALL QFPHPSF PARM(*CRTSTGTY1 STGNAME)

3.Attempt the restore again which will over write the existing
Type-1 files with saved data.

Note: The storage space can only be restored to System ASP, and
it can only be linked to NWSD with type *IXSRV.
