APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The ENDSBS command is processed as part of GO SAVE or GO RESTORE
menu options 21, 22, 23 as well as GO LICPGM option 40. The
ENDSBS is always issued regardless of whether or not the system
is already in a restricted state.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE74587' :
-------------------------------
The menu options will be enhanced to skip the ENDSBS command if
the system is already in a restricted state. This applies to
both attended and unattended modes. The advantage of this is to
avoid the unneeded ENDSBS processing which can expedite
progressing to the save or restore commands. An additional
benefit offers the ability to avoid ending limited mode TCP/IP
services that can operate while the system is in a restricted
state.

It's important to note the "End TCP/IP wait time" menu option
processes prior to and independent of the ENDSBS precheck,
meaning the ending of TCP/IP services will still occur if this
value is set to anything other than *NONE. Special
considerations must also be made for the "Vary off network
servers" as network server connections may be affected depending
on the state of TCP/IP.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE74587' :

None.
