APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Logically removing a virtual Fibre Channel adapter from an IBM i
partition while it is running, such as by using Dynamic
Partitioning on an HMC to remove the adapter from the partition
configuration or by using the RLSASPIO command with the *HARD
option, will result in a VL4E000009 LIC log entry containing a
program stack showing an exception occurred in module
VioVfcClientScsiRequest in routine
__dt__23VioVfcClientScsiRequestFv. The remove operation will
fail, but the virtual Fibre Channel adapter will remain
nonoperational until the partition is reipled.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA43550 :
-----------------------------
The virtual Fibre Channel adapter device driver will change the
ordering of operations during resource removal to prevent the
exception from occurring.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA43550 :
--------------------------------
None.
