Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • ENHANCEMENT:
    For z/VM 5.4.0, this APAR offers:
    1. Support of processor type 2964 with the following models:
    N30, N63, N96, NC9, NE1.
    2. Support of a fourth subchannel set.
    3. Support of 6 Channel Subsystems.
    4. Support of 85 LPARs.
    5. New channel path type(CS5).
    
    But toleration support for:
    1. PCIe functions of processor.
    2. PNETID attribute of CHPID.
    3. VCHID attribute of IQD CHPID.
    
    About the toleration, 2 scenarios need to be distinguished:
    1. An IODF does NOT contain either
    - PCIe functions or
    - CHPIDs with PNETID attributes or
    - CHPIDs with VCHID attributes
    full support is available, including updates of the IODF,
    generation of reports, building production IODF, and etc.
    But users CAN'T create PCIe functions, add PNETID
    attributes to CHPIDs or VCHID attributes to CHPIDs.
    
    2. An IODF contains
    - PCIe functions or
    - CHPIDs with PNETID attributes or
    - CHPIDs with VCHID attributes
    Users can update the IODF, generate reports, build
    product IODF, and the original information about these
    features will be kept, only if the processors or the CHPIDs
    with them are deleted.
    But users
    -CAN'T create PCIe functions, edit or review the existing
    ones.
    -CAN'T add PNETID attributes to CHPIDs, edit or review
    the existing ones.
    -CAN'T add VCHID attributes to CHPIDs, edit or review
    the existing ones.
    
    It is recommended to install first the following HCD PTFs:
    1. For z/VM 5.4.0: PTFs for APAR VM65658
