APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
Restoring a *NODGRP object created on the same system fails with
CPF32C2 (Node group cannot be used) and MCH3601 (Pointer not
set), which, in turn, fails the restore. This has affected
customer's ability to replicate that object with their software.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE73840' :
-------------------------------
The CPF32C2 was caused by some old code that was still checking
for *IP RDB entries.  As *IP entries are now supported, the code
to issue the CPF32C2 warning message has been removed.  The
MCH3601 was caused by a variable that wasn't declared large
enough to receive the RDB entry information which caused a
pointer to be wiped out. The code will be changed to ensure
enough storage was allocated to receive the RDB entry
information.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE73840' :
----------------------------------
None.
