APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Some problems require support to contact development to analyze
hexadecimal data. If the same information recorded as a PAL
Secondary Code were available, support would likely be able to
determine problems quicker.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA46191 :
-----------------------------
Apply this fix to change the code that logs IOPless tape driver
VLOGs to include a dump item that is displayed in character form
as "PRC:0000xxxx", where the xxxx is from the same list of
reasons as PAL Secondary Codes.  This fix also changes the URC
information (currently in hexadecimal) to character form
"URC:xxxx"

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA46191 :
--------------------------------
None.
