APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
eSA for IBM i on 7.1 & 7.2 will check JDK6 during activation.
But JDK6 will be out of service at the end of 2017. For the new
setup env 7.1 or 7.2, it will check JDK8 during activation.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE68303 :
-----------------------------
Check the 5761JV1/5770JV1 option 16 instead of option11 when
pre-activation installation since JDK6 will be out of service at
the end of 2017.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE68303 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions

None.




Special Instructions


JDK6 will be end of support at the end of 2017. eSA for IBM i will use
JDK8. This PTF will enable eSA pre-activation checking and JVM creation
against JDK 8(5770JV1 option16) on IBM i 7.2. Before applied this PTF,
You should apply the following PTFs first:
1. PTF SI66110. PTF SI66110 specify to use JDK8 property in
SAJava.properties.
2. PTF SI66280. It imports the changes of IBM_CreateJavaVM() interface
that eSA is using to create JVM.
3. PTF SI66459. This PTF removed the settings of java.ext.dirs in
eccjvm.properties.

********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI66325:
================================================

This PTF is to disable automatic problem reporting of legacy Software
FFDC (First Failure Data Capture). After applied this PTF,you need to
restart eSA jobs(go service->8,then go service->9). Then software
monitor job will be removed. However, SNDSRVRQS command will still
work. We could use it.
