APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If the tape drive reports that the media is degraded when a
rewind is sent, the driver does not update the media position,
and will subsequently log a SRC 9210 indicating the position is
not expected. Correct error should be a SRC 9351.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA44129 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix to correct the PAL reported when a degraded tape
is encountered.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA44129 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.
