SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI48537 :
=================================================

Before apply/remove the PTF:
ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*LPD)

After apply/remove the PTF:
CHGLPDA NBRSVR(x)
STRTCPSVR SERVER(*LPD)

NOTE: After apply the PTF, please ignore the help information about
"Number of initial servers (NBRSVR)" in CHGLPDA and refer the following
update. It will be updated in the next GA release as well.

................................................................
:          Number of initial servers (NBRSVR) - Help           :
:                                                              :
:  Specifies the number of LPD servers to start initially      :
:  when LPD is started by either the STRTCP command or the     :
:  STRTCPSVR command.  The initial number of servers is 2.     :
:                                                              :
:  The STRTCP command starts all the servers specified in the  :
:  CHGLPDA command.  The STRTCPSVR command starts only one     :
:  LPD server, regardless of the number of the servers         :
:  currently running.                                          :
:                                                              :
:  LPD works most efficiently when two or more servers are     :
:  running.  Running only one server works, but no jobs can    :
:  be received while a current job is running.  If a large     :
:  print job is running, new jobs have to wait before LPD is   :
:  ready to accept any new LPR requests.                       :

:  *DFT                                                        :
:      The number of servers is set to the default value of    :
:      2.                                                      :

:  number-of-servers                                           :
:      The number of servers requested in this parameter is    :
:      started the next time the LPD server is started.        :
:      Valid values range from 1 through 200 servers.          :
