APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
If a critical error occurs during the creation of the IOPless
tape device driver, a looping condition may occur that logs many
2E00 8101 LIC logs, and in some cases a system IPL may be
required before the tape device can be used.
Additional keywords: VL2E008101

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA45601 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix to improve the detection of the critical error,
and log a single 2E00 8105 LIC Log.  An IPL of the adapter
should recover the device.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA45601 :
--------------------------------
None.


DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR MA45584 :
-----------------------------------------------
When a tape is unloaded in a media library, the last tape
statistics log may be missing.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA45584 :
-----------------------------
Problem is most likely to occur if *LEAVE was used on the last
operation.  Apply this fix to ensure the tape statistics are
logged even when *LEAVE is used.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA45584 :
--------------------------------
None.
