APAR Error Description / Circumvention
Provides MRI for the following new functionality and
1. The administrative domain's monitored resource entry limit
has increased by over 340% to support up to 200,000 monitored
resource entries, enabling support for the largest environments.
2. The WRKCADMRE command is enhanced with new parameters that
enable filtering based on several criteria, including monitored
resource, library, resource type, and global status. These
filters can be combined and support generic wildcards.
3. The Add Cluster Administrative Domain Monitored Resource
Entry (ADDCADMRE) command has been enhanced to support *ALL and
wildcards on the monitored resource and library parameters. In
addition, an omit parameter has been added. These new options
are supported for user profiles, authorization lists, classes,
job descriptions and subsystem descriptions. Now, many resources
can be added to the administrative domain with a single command,
simplifying administrative domain setup.
1. Support for replicating encrypted passwords set with the
QSYSUPWD API. Previously, the use of the QSYSUPWD API would
cause the user-affected profile to be marked as inconsistent
within the administrative domain.
2. Improved control over changing the synchronization option for
an administrative domain using the CHGCAD command even when some
nodes in the administrative domain are inactive.
3. The WRKCADMRE command has been enhanced to work even when
clustering is inactive. With this function, users can view
monitored resources within an administrative domain on a local
node even during maintenance windows.
4. Integrated and streamlined recovery from a data-center outage
in a HyperSwap with a LUN-level switching environment that
enables HyperSwap protection to be restored with a single
5. Confirmation panels in PowerHA have been enhanced to use F16
instead of enter for confirm.
6. Several PowerHA work panels have been enhanced to show both
error and completion messages at the bottom of the panel upon
execution of actions on the work panel.

7. A status of detached for Copy Services Manager Sessions has
been enhanced to display as XXXX instead of blanks for
consistency and ease of understanding.
8. CHGCRGCNR switch type of *SAMESITE behavior has been improved
to be more consistent in handling of ordering of the recovery
9. User queue and user space objects used for PowerHA operation
have been moved from the QGPL library to the QUSRHASM library.
10. Function key 'F13=Release notes' has been added to the
WRKCLU menu to show
the release notes for the PowerHA product.
CORRECTION FOR APAR SE72415 :
PowerHA has been enhanced with new MRI for HA 4.0.1 new
CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE72415 :
THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
