APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
Reduce frequency of calls to setProgressStatus macro to improve
vary-on performance.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE64371' :
-------------------------------
This PTF will significantly reduce the number of calls to update
the status during the Spool Initialization part of vary-on of
ASP devices.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE64371' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE64702' :
-------------------------------------------------
Add the RTNCODES keyword to the UFCB used to open the
QSPL/QASPLINFO file during the ChkForDupFiles procedure of Spool
Initialization.  This eliminates the need to send and receive a
status message for each spooled file on the iASP.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE64702' :
-------------------------------
This PTF reduces the amount of time spent in the Spool
Initialization step during vary-on of an ASP device.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE64702' :
----------------------------------
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THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI47165:
================================================

The recommended way to defer spooled file conversions during an upgrade
from Version 5 is to set the QSPL/QSPLDFRCVN data area value to '1'.

To prevent the converted spooled files from being detached when using
the QSPLDFRCVN data area with a value of '0', this PTF must be applied
to your system prior to creating your install media, or it must be
loaded and applied to the system before the system comes out of
restricted state.

Unless the PTF is applied to your install media, you must perform the
install with the key switch set to "D MANUAL" and at the IPL Options
screen after the first sign-on make sure to change the "Start system to
restricted state" value to 'Y', otherwise QSPRC00001 may remove all the
previous-version job table entries (detach their spooled files) before
you have an opportunity to load and apply the PTF.  If you perform an
auto install, the controlling subsystem will start automatically during
the licensed program install step and QSPRC00001 will remove the jobs
before you can apply the PTF.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
