APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
An OEM network printer with the IPDS feature installed fails
whenever a writer is started.  The writer joblog shows an
unmonitored MSGMCH3601 F/QWPALLOC X/05F3.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE58677' :
-------------------------------
The printer is reporting back 36 source drawers when polled, and
the operating system only had room in an internal data structure
for 24 source drawers.  When the limit was reached, it would
function check to avoid looping or overwriting the end of the
space.

The paper source array has been extended to 48 drawers, and
QWPALLOC has been changed to issue a CPF9898 diagnostic message
if the array overflows instead of ending the writer.  Any paper
source drawers that will not fit in the array will just be
ignored.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE58677' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions

If this PTF is applied or removed with DELAY(*NO), without an IPL, you
should first end all printer writers or end the QSPL subsystem.  The
PTF will take effect when the writers are restarted.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
