APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When a lot of jobs run under the same user and create/destroy
objects owned by the user (or group/supplemental group), seize
contention may be observed in the QSZGTPRD code path

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE66767 :
-----------------------------
The index being used by QSZGTPRD was not created with the
correct authorities.  The code will be changed to ensure the
index is created with the proper authorities to avoid the seize
contention.  Once this PTF has been applied, the following
command will need to be called to re-create the index with the
proper authorities:  CALL QSZRECOV 'N'

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE66767 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


This change will ensure that the next time the index gets created, it
will have the correct authorities.  This fix does not re-create the
index.  To re-create this index you need to run the following command:
CALL QSZRECOV 'N'


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
