APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If a Restore User Profile (RSTUSRPRF) has been done on an IBM i
7.4 system with Db2 Mirror for i configured, the following
issues may occur:

Issue #1: After the re-sync, there may be error entries on the
Object Tracking List (OTL) for some system user profiles.
Issue #2: User profiles that were restored may have been given
elevated privileges on both the source and target systems during
the re-sync processing.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE71920 :
-----------------------------
Changes will be made to prevent the error entries on the OTL and
to ensure user profiles have the correct privileges.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE71920 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


If a Restore User Profile (RSTUSRPRF) has been done on an IBM i 7.4
system with Db2 Mirror configured prior to applying this PTF, the
following remediation steps are required after applying the PTF:

1) Delete any user profile error entries on the Object Tracking List
(OTL) that contain 'RSTUSRPRF user_name' in the Description field. Use
the Db2 Mirror GUI to delete the entries.
2) Resume Db2 Mirror using the GUI.
3) Redo the RSTUSRPRF. You MUST use the same Save Security Data
(SAVSECDTA) media as the original RSTUSRPRF. Do not use a SAVSECDTA
media that was created after doing a RSTUSRPRF with Db2 Mirror
configured and without the PTF applied.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
