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

Recovery . . . : Save the information created by the message

Technical description . . . . . . . : Error summary code
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
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
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.
CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE52449' :
