APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The customer application overrides 7 printer files to output
PDF.  Multiple instances of this application run concurrently.
Application fails intermittently with message CPFCE06, rc8, or
message CPF4208, rc7. When rerun, application completes
successfully.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE68590 :
-----------------------------
The QCTXFORM client will be changed to retry the setup of
temporary work directory and files to overcome system resource
contention issues.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE68590 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED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SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI51809 :
=================================================

Transform Services will now access the AFP resource objects via
QSYS.LIB in the Integrated File System (IFS) instead of copying the
resource data into temporary files.  To disable this new function (to
behave as in previous versions of the operating system), create an
environment variable QIBM_QCTX_AFPOBJ_IFS and set its value to '0':
> ADDENVVAR ENVVAR('QIBM_QCTX_AFPOBJ_IFS') VALUE('0')

This system value can be added, removed, or changed at LEVEL(*JOB) or
LEVEL(*SYS).

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI65877 :
=================================================

To configure the submissions of Transform Services tasks performed by
the QCTXDMON jobs to run in a subsystem other than QUSRWRK, create a
CHAR(10) data area named QCTXSBS that contains the name of the
alternate subsystem. The data area must be created into a library that
is in the library list of the job that requests the service.
For example, to run the QCTXDMON jobs in subsystem MYSUBSYS,

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QGPL/QCTXSBS) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10) VALUE('MYSUBSYS')
TEXT('Alternate subsystem for QCTXDMON jobs')

The QCTXDMON pre-start jobs must be added to the alternate subsystem
with the ADDPJE command. The following parameters will add the QCTXDMON
pre-start jobs with the same attributes used by default for the QUSRWRK
subsystem.

ADDPJE SBSD(QGPL/MYSUBSYS) PGM(QSYS/QCTXDMON) INLJOBS(1) THRESHOLD(1)
JOBD(QGPL/QCTXFORM) MAXUSE(1) CLS(QSYS/QSYSCLS20)

If the subsystem is already active, you must start the prestart jobs
using the STRPJ command, or if the subsystem in not active, the
QCTXDMON prestart jobs will start in the new subsystem when it is
started.

Optionally, the QCTXDMON pre-start job may then be ended and removed
from the QUSRWRK subsystem.

ENDPJ SBS(QUSRWRK) PGM(QSYS/QCTXDMON) DELAY(30)
RMVPJE SBSD(QSYS/QUSRWRK) PGM(QSYS/QCTXDMON)

NOTE: This interim method of configuring the subsystem to which
QCTXDMON jobs are submitted may change in a future release.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
