APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Customer applied C7290 Cume PTF and after IPL, Ethernet lines
would not vary on. Ethernet lines were set to match the switch
with hardcoded values of 100M / *FULL for line speed/duplex. If
customer set LIND to *AUTO/*AUTO, it negotiated to 100M / *HALF,
but the lines varied on, but were not stable.

Changing the settings on the switch to 1G / *FULL, and then
setting Line speed to 1G / *FULL made line stable again.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA46760 :
-----------------------------
An error was introduced by 7.2 PTF MF63748 and 7.3 PTF MF63849
which can cause the 576F adapter to fail to establish a link.
If your 576F line description is going FAILED when it is varied
on, you should apply this PTF to correct the problem.
