APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
An interrupt for a 57D2 WAN card was being processed and the
device driver attempted to access storage which was paged out,
causing a system crash with SRCB6000103.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA46500' :
-------------------------------
The 57D2 device driver storage that was paged out was not
allocated as resident. The 57D2 device driver has been changed
to allocate that storage as resident. This prevents the storage
from being paged out, which prevents the system crash from
occurring.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA46500' :
----------------------------------
Logically remove the 57D2 WAN card from the system configuration
using the HMC DLPAR function or the SST HSM function. The card
can also be physically removed from the system if desired. A
57D4 or 576C WAN card can be substituted for the 57D2 card to
provide equivalent function.
