APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When an IPv6 subnet is defined with a prefix length that's not a
multiple of 8, the prefix length is rounded down to a multiple
of 8, causing the subnet to reference a larger range of
addresses than desired.

Also, displaying active filter rules through IBM Navigator for i
omits all rules based on an IPv6 range or subnet.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE60368 :
-----------------------------
IPv6 prefix length processing by filter rules has been
corrected. Display of active packet filter rules for IPv6 ranges
and subnets has also been corrected.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE60368 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.
