APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
There needs to be a way to copy an IPL capable DVD or
distributed media image to RDX or Flash media.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE62172 :
-----------------------------
Apply this PTF to enable copying an existing IPL capable DVD or
distributed media image to RDX or Flash media via the DUPOPT
command.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE62172 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


After this PTF is applied the DUPOPT command can be used to duplicate
an IPL capable DVD or distributed media image to RDX or Flash media.

Specifying a value of *BOOT for the To Volume parameter on the DUPOPT
command indicates that the boot area and all files from the source
media are to be copied to the mounted target media. The copy is done
even if the physical characteristics of the target optical volume do
not match the physical characteristics of the source optical volume.

The following example of the DUPOPT command shows how to copy IPL
capable media that is mounted in a DVD device that is named OPT01
to RDX media that is already initialized and mounted in device RMS01.

DUPOPT FROMVOL(*MOUNTED) TOVOL(*BOOT) CLEAR(*YES) FROMDEV(OPT01)
TODEV(RMS01)

The command in this example duplicates the mounted optical volume in
device OPT01 to the mounted optical volume in device RMS01. The optical
volume in device RMS01 is initialized before the duplication process.
The volume in device RMS01 will be IPL capable after the duplication
process completes.

Note: The special value of *BOOT is only valid when the source volume
contains IPL capable media.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
