APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Using 5250 printer passthru, CHGDEVPRT is issued in QPASVRS job,
but fails with CPD0018.
This used to work in IBM i 5.3, but fails now in IBM i 6.1.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE56613 :
-----------------------------
Parameter default for Host print transform (TRANSFORM) has been
corrected for the changing pass-through printers.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE56613 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI42134 :
=================================================

1) End the Telnet, pass-through server, and pass-through utilities
servers:
ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*TELNET)
ENDCMNSVR SERVER(*PASTHR)
ENDCMNSVR SERVER(*UTILSVR)

2) Find any active QTVDEVICE jobs in the QSYSWRK subsystem and end
them.
WRKACTJOB SBS(QSYSWRK) JOB(QTVDEVICE)

3) If APAR error SE45218, fixed by superseded PTF SI40314 has already
occurred where many extra virtual display device descriptions have been
created, you should delete all virtual display device descriptions
before applying this PTF and restarting servers to reduce the CPU
overhead to process many unused extra virtual display devices.
Required virtual devices will be automatically created by the system
using the QAUTOVRT - Autoconfigure virtual devices system value:
- Delete all QPADEVnnnn virtual virtual display device descriptions,
or if you are using your own naming convention, then delete all
autocreated virtual display device descriptions that match your
naming convention, using the Delete Device Description (DLTDEVD)
command.

4) Apply this PTF

5) Restart required Telnet, Passthru, and Passthru Utilities servers:
STRCMNSVR SERVER(*UTILSVR)
STRCMNSVR SERVER(*PASTHR)
STRTCPSVR SERVER(*TELNET)


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
