APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
After upgrading the OS from R710 to R730, one particular spooled
file will no longer print to an *IPDS capable printer. The page
segment attached to the spooled file has a self defined field
asking for the color black, thus the cause of the message.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70134 :
-----------------------------
This PTF corrects the following problem.

PSF was incorrectly ending with an MCH3601 error when color
image data was being sent to very old printers which do not
support color.

Technical explanation: When an IOCA image containing either a
Set Bilevel Image Color(0xF6) self defining field or a Set
Extended Bilevel Image Color(0xF4) self defining field was being
sent to a printer which does support multiple colors for
bi-level IO images (bit 7 of the 0x40nn STM property pair is on)
PSF would end with an MCH3601 error.   PSF has been corrected to
continue processing and not end abnormally.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE70134 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


If this PTF is applied or removed as a "Delayed" PTF, which
requires an IPL, no special consideration is necessary. If
this PTF is applied or removed "Immediate", you must first
end all of the PSF writers or end the QSPL subsystem.
When the writers are started again, the PTF code will be active.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
