APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When an IASP runs out of space, the IASP is taken offline. If,
during the subsequent Vary On attempt, Storage Management cannot
extend its directories during Storage Management recovery, it
sets a flag to force a special recovery step during the next
Vary On to recover free space. That special step had a defect
that could cause the Storage Management Directory Recovery to
fail during Vary On. One common approach to getting more space
in the IASP is to add additional disk to the IASP. However, if
the special recovery step flag had been set, and a new disk is
added, the defect will be exposed on every Vary On attempt.
