foregoing.

This PTF is subject to the terms of the license agreement which
accompanied, or was contained in, the Program for which you are obtaining

APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The Network File System (NFS) Registry daemon job (QNFSRGYD) is
holding a large number of synchronization object handles that
eventually exhaust the number of synchronization object handles
on the system.  Once system resources are exhausted, the job may
encounter many MSGMCH3601 (Pointer not set for location
referenced) messages in the joblog.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE67685 :
-----------------------------
The NFS Registry daemon job is not correctly closing a
synchronization object handle when sending a response to a NFSv4
name resolution query.  This PTF corrects the behavior, and
synchronization object handles are returned to the system.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE67685 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


This PTF contains objects that are activated only at IPL time.
Therefore, if this PTF is applied as an immediate PTF, you must
perform an IPL of the system to activate the PTF. Applying the
PTF as an immediate PTF will ensure that the PTF becomes active
even after an abnormal IPL where delayed PTFs are not applied.

If the PTF is applied as a delayed PTF, no further action is
necessary.





Special Instructions


It is necessary to end the NFS Registry daemon (QNFSRGYD) job before
applying this PTF in immediate mode.  If the job is active, end it by
calling ENDNFSSVR *RGY from the command prompt.

After the PTF is applied, the job can be restarted by calling STRNFSSVR
*RGY.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
