    * Prior to applying the PTF for APAR VM64437 for VMHCD,        *
    * the delta (2D2) and 300 disks require increases (if VMHCD    *
    * is installed to minidisk), or space needs to be added to the *
    * filepool (if VMHCD is installed in SFS). Please refer to the *
    * article found at:                                            *
